Looking for a unique way to give back this Thanksgiving?

Since the month of November celebrates THANKS & GIVING, it may be a great time to consciously complete some random acts of kindness either on your own or with your family!

I’ve designed this fun list of FREE or inexpensive small things you can do to make a friend or stranger smile. After all, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make a difference in someone’s day!


To use just print and frame the list, then use a dry erase marker to check off the acts of kindness as you complete them. Want to make up your own list of ideas? I’ve also made a blank printable list as well!




In addition, I’ve also made some cards you can print out and tape with your small acts of giving if desired!

My kids and I really like completing these small acts of giving together and I know you will too! It becomes addicting, and you’ll want to start spreading the LOVE everywhere!

Do you have any great random acts of kindness ideas to add? Let us know in the comments!

    Such a wonderful idea. Thanks Lina!

  2. Adrian

    Putting money into another person’s parking meter is against the law. You might want to reconsider doing that.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh no! Had no idea, thanks for pointing that out. Wouldn’t want anyone to get in trouble. πŸ˜€

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Just curious… Why?

    You cant give CVS ECBs away either, they are card specific.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh no! Shoot we’re just really messing up these ideas – darn πŸ˜€ Thanks for adding πŸ‘

      • mel

        No problem! I sure wish we could share them!!!

      How fun!!! πŸ™‚

  8. Liz

    This is so perfect! I’m a huge Christmas fanatic. Not a food or football person and my family is so close that I see them often so I never really got the appeal of Thanksgiving. My oldest is 3 now though and I would like him to get something out of November that isn’t “We just spent this month thinking about Christmas….” I was thinking about doing this exact thing but couldn’t find any ideas! Thank you thank you thank you!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      That’s so sweet! Thanks for reading πŸ˜€

  9. holly

    THANK YOU, Lina!!!! Just what I needed for my kiddos. And you did all the ‘thinking work’ for me. ☺

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sure Holly! Have fun πŸ˜€

    • Luz

      Thanks! This is fun! Definitely doing this πŸ˜€

    • E

      This is such a great idea! I love the longer list,but my kids are little and it’s hard to do things with a toddler. This is perfect for them! There is a playground right near us by a low income housing development,this will be perfect!

    My daughter has been asking for donations from friends and family so that she can make blessings bags for a shelter in our area.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Love it! My kids like making them also πŸ‘

  11. Cristen

    I love this! Great list. Thank you!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks Cristen!

  12. Yolie

    Thanks for the ideas! Last year I used a list like this for our advent calendar. It was a mix of family fun and random acts of kindness. My kids loved it and really got into it. It was sweet and a lot of fun.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      How great! It is SO SWEET how kids get into it! I love the idea as an advent calendar – Thanks Yolie

  13. Happymama

    Cute! However, I took my elderly neighbor’s trash and recycling to the curb once only to find that he had porch pick up, and he fell trying to pick them up from the curb πŸ™ I felt so bad.

    • Luz

      Hey we all have those moments. Your heart was in the right place! *thumbs up*

      • Happymama

        Thanks Luz! I need that…it’s been a crazy day.

  14. Stormy
