Looking for a kindness list that is safe for social distancing? We see a lot of lists of acts of kindness come out during the holiday season, but in 2020 there are many that don’t apply. We can’t as easily give hugs, visit a local shelter, or pick up the bill for someone at a restaurant.

Instead, let’s focus on acts of kindness that we CAN do at a safe social distance. Let’s focus on acts of kindness that are particularly needed these days, like getting in touch with those who may feel lonely. Let’s focus on what we CAN do rather than being reminded of what we can’t.

This is a somewhat different article for Homestead How-To, but I wanted to create a list of things our family could do together this season and I figured others might be looking for something, too.

Click on the image below to share with your family and friends, and let’s spread kindness in a year when it is definitely needed!

Acts of kindness for 2020

And here is the list, in case you can’t print out the image above:

  • donate new toys for kids who need them
  • make holiday cards for neighbors
  • write a letter to someone you haven’t seen in a while (send it!)
  • make a bird feeder
  • send thank you notes to houses with great decorations
  • donate food to your local food shelf
  • take plants to a local nursing home (call to see if you can drop them off at the front door safely)
  • send a thank you letter to a teacher, librarian, or other public servant you appreciate
  • call a relative who is far away to tell them about your day
  • decorate a public path with natural decorations (ones that will biodegrade or feed the animals)
  • deliver baked goods to a friend just to brighten their day (or if sharing food is not comfortable, deliver a homemade ornament!)
  • let someone know you appreciate them (and tell them why)
  • do a favor for a family member or friend

What would you add to this list?
