Today is the 13th annual “Kindness Day” sponsored by WFLA News Channel 8 in Tampa.
Along with generous community and corporate partners, Kindness Day supports five Tampa Bay area charities.
However, regardless of where you live, in the spirit of Galatians 6:10, you can make today “Kindness Day” in your own special way.
Here are 21 ideas.
