#Do1NiceThing is something we can all take part in! It is about loving the person in front of you, serving others and the wider community. It is about being the change, making positive steps to make life better for others and yourself in the process. The ideas are generally very simple and require not much thought or pre-planning. Love the person in front of you is a radical life and community transformation model!
In 2024 we are suggesting #Do1NiceThing as a Lent challenge.
#Do1NiceThing came out of Street Angels and HOPE Together back in 2010 as Love Your Streets. We recognised that not everyone can walk the streets until the early hours of weekend mornings, however most people can commit to Love Your Streets! Taking responsibility for your community; bringing colour to the world around you; praying for your neighbourhood; caring for your neighbours; picking up litter; becoming a nicer driver; saying thank you; engaging in conversation with the shopkeeper; shopping locally or buying Fairtrade.... It's not a movement or anything weird, rather good old fashioned community spirit!
In 2018 we were even featured in The Sun newspaper!
It doesn't matter if you live in a town, city, village or country hamlet! If you go near a street or other people then this concept is for you. Spread some love, spread some hope, spread a smile, spread some random acts of kindness, love the person in front of you - help make our world an even better place to be!!!!
