Start 2016 with Random Acts of Kindness

Random Acts of Kindness

At Putnam Bank we believe in the power of giving, and the season of gift giving doesn’t have to come to an end just because December did! No matter how small of a gesture, each can offer an incredible impact on the life of another. Try some of these simple acts and see how you can affect the life of another person. Challenge yourself this year to do more kind acts, random or not. Get your friends and family involved

  1. Pay for the person’s food or beverage behind you in line.
  2. Write a letter to a soldier.
  3. Donate new and used toys to daycares or children’s hospitals.
  4. Cook a meal for a family who may be without.
  5. Give a good server the largest tip you can afford.
  6. Shovel snow or do other yard work for your neighbor.
  7. Pick up trash when you’re out for a walk.
  8. Offer assistance to a charitable organization with your time and skills.
