Random Acts Of Thanks & Giving Week: November 21, 2022 (Day 1)
Thanksgiving week is finally here! Welcome to our 1st Annual Random Acts Of Thanks & Giving Week! We'll be giving you different Thanks and Giving themed Today's Kindness every day this week to usher in the holiday season!
World Hello Day, on November 21st, recognizes the role communication plays in preserving peace. The day also encourages world leaders to use communication rather than force to settle conflicts.
It doesn't take a lot of effort to say hello. It's one little word that means a whole lot. Hello shows that you are friendly. It shows that you want to connect with someone. Saying hello is a great way to start a conversation. Generally, when you say hello to someone, they say it back.
Hello provides a way to communicate with everyone from family members to co-workers. You can even greet strangers you pass by on the sidewalk or in the hallway. Saying hello with a smile is a great way to brighten someone's day. It's incredible how one little word brings so much goodness to the world.
Participants are encouraged to say hello to 10 different people on this day. Don't just reserve this word for co-workers, friends, and family members. You can also say hello to strangers. Perhaps you'll be sharing an elevator or shopping in the same aisle at the grocery store. When saying hello, keep track of how many people say it back. Also, try to gauge how they feel when you say hello. Are they pleasantly surprised? Maybe saying hello will even help you make a new friend. If you have not spoken to someone in a long time, text or call with a simple hello. It might just help bring peace to the relationship.
"A hello sends a message of welcome of acknowledgment and of worth. To ignore someone is to say to them that they are not worthy of your attention. Make it a point to say hello, warmly, and with a smile."
