Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you. ~ Princess Diana
This month the theme at Little Pickle Press is kindness. It is a value that rests at the core of who we are as a company, and something we strive to achieve every day through our philanthropic efforts and the messages we send in our children's media.
We believe that even the simplest acts of kindness can make a difference in our world. We also believe in kind karma, the idea that in one form or another, the person who takes an extra step to deliver kindness into the world will be rewarded.
The truth is that any act of kindness, whether it big or small, can make a monumental difference in somebody’s life. I am positive we have all experienced it: that moment when you are so pleasantly surprised by someone’s kindness that you can’t help but walk away smiling, inspired to be kind to the next person you come in contact with.
Kind karma can come in many forms. It is the person who helps a lost child in the grocery store find their mother. It is the person in line behind you at the coffee shop, who sees that you dropped $20, and decides to return it. The action that sets kind karma in motion does not have to be monumental, although it certainly can be.
Kind karma comes from an act of selflessness, one that is fueled only by the desire to have a positive impact on somebody’s life. It is an action that comes without expectation, but often bears significant reward. When you release positivity into the world, positive things will come your way.
This July, Little Pickle Press has decided to give this kind karma a head-start by offering a full set of our award-winning children's books to somebody who has gone above and beyond to carry out a random act of kindness. Share yours and be entered to win a wonderful collection of stories for your child's school, an organization of your choosing, or your own home library!
