#taggedbykindness – Update

When I first shared the #taggedbykindness project I had no idea the impact.  This was a fun little project that I thought would spread some positive vibes out in the universe and maybe up my positive karma.

A quick recap:  I started leaving decorated tags in books that I was returning to the library.  I posted about this and began collaborating with some of my artist friends from different states.  I mailed them 5 – they mailed 5 back.  We hash tagged them with #taggedbykindness and added this website and what state they were from on the back.  So far we have tags out in: New Jersey, Nebraska, Maine, Illinois and California.  I also just mailed a few to someone in Idaho recently.  We no longer just add them to returned library books – they’re being sprinkled in movie theatres, coffee shops, restaurants and anywhere else that seems right.

I made a presentation last month with a local elementary school Early Act Club.  The kids loved the idea and created tags for a local nursing home they visit.

I think what has made this project take flight is the love, creativity and talent of my Carriers of Kindness.  You know who you are!  Your support, your commitment and determination in keeping this project going is amazing.  I love each and every one of you and appreciate so much your dedication to this little project.  Let’s keep going!  I’d love to see this project go to at least all 50 states and would be thrilled to have it take off globally.

There are still big things happening.  I’m going back to the Early Act Club and actually to another school to share the project.  Word is slowly spreading and I believe this project is beginning to take flight.  Thank you to everyone who has become a part of this project and has taken it on as their own.  This random act of kindness shares positivity and brightens days.  Being kind is free – it doesn’t cost a thing.  If you are interested in joining the #taggedbykindness movement – drop me a line!  Imagine what we can do with all this positivity.

The Tagged By Kindness Project

It’s no secret that I love tags.  I rubberstamp them.  I tie them on to packages.  I paint them.  I am currently in a tag collaboration with another artist friend.  Little Known Fact: I also use a new tag as a book mark with every book that I read.  Sometimes I write just one word on the tag.  Or I use some of my washi tape to decorate it. I even doodle on them from time to time.  From this love of tags came the inspiration for the #taggedbykindness project.

I recently began decorating tags and tucking them into my library books before I return them.  I thought this would be a really fun way to spread some positivity through a Random Act of Kindness (RAK).  I always handwrite #taggedbykindness on the back.  Every once in a while I check social media to see if the tags have been found yet.

In all likelihood I will never meet any of the recipients of the #taggedbykindness project.  I’m fine with this reality.  That’s not the purpose of this project any way.  This is a very small way to send positive energy out in to the universe.  I hope that whoever finds these little tags is inspired to do something positive for someone else.  Oh the many possibilities of paying it forward…

I would love if you would join me in spreading some good vibes with the #taggedbykindness project.  Grab a few tags, decorate them anyway you’d like and spread them randomly in spots where they will one day be found.   We’re not just limited to library books.  I’m thinking coffee shops, dentist appointments (in the magazines).  How about in a restaurant?  Slip one under the tip for the waitress. Half the fun is figuring out where to leave these little pieces of papery goodness.

One small drop of kindness…imagine the ripple.
