As a blogger, opening my email can sometimes be surprising. I think it’s great when PR companies reach out to bloggers to be ambassadors for brands or special events – and when a newsworthy item comes along that totally aligns with my blog, I am more than happy to share it.

The first time I heard about doing kind things for others just because as a thing was in high school when the student council announced Random Acts of Kindness Week. I’m glad that the trend hasn’t died down and in fact, has been played out on a huge scale by individuals, small grassroots organizations and big corporations alike. Brentwood Mall in Burnaby, B.C. is no exception.

Take a look at the official press release and video below; this is a great example of when Creativity and Kindness intersect. If you are close enough to Brentwood to get down there on a Friday for a free massage, a dance break or a chance to win free lunch then go for it! But also, I’m sending this out because it may inspire you to start a Feel Good campaign wherever you are! When we use our creativity to do good for others, we are tapping into the best part of ourselves! (Tweet that!)
