Feb. 14 marks one year since the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting where 17 lives were lost. The School District of Palm Beach County encouraged communities to participate in 17 Acts of Kindness leading up to Feb. 14 to honor the victims.

The acts of kindness began on Jan. 29 with the first suggested act being to send uplifting messages to MSD either by mail or through social media. Day 2 of the acts was to thank an officer; Day 3, send a Valentine’s Day card to a local nursing home; Day 4, send a classmate or co-worker a positive message; Day 5, create an anonymous kindness rock and leave it somewhere for someone to find; Day 6, collect donations of books or school supplies for classrooms or libraries; Day 7, write a thank you card for your bus driver or anyone in your community that provides an important service; Day 8, participate in or lead a campus or community clean-up; Day 9, eat lunch with someone you don’t know; Day 10, help someone with a chore or task; Day 11, give compliments to at least 10 people; Day 12, write a note to your teacher, coach or mentor about their impact on your life; and Day 13, volunteer at a food bank or any place needing extra help.

The remaining acts are Day 14, share on social media what you love about your school or community; Day 15, write a letter to a deployed or wounded military service member through Operation Gratitude or Soldiers’ Angles; Day 16, volunteer in a special needs classroom or facility; and Day 17, text or email someone you haven’t reach out to in a long time.

Anyone could share their act of kindness on social media by using the hashtags #StrongerTogether and #17ActsofKindness.
