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.
