I so delighted to share something near and dear to my heart, Project Be The Good in the World.

Hi Capturing Joy readers! Pleasure, as always, to be included here. I’m Heather Walker with Heather Walker Photography and I will not be talking photography this time, but instead another passion of mine. I’d like to share a personal project I’ve been working on with my family. I’ve always greatly admired those who pass the love with Random Acts of Kindnesses. I believe that one person can make the difference in making the world a better place. I believe it’s possible that one act of Kindness in a friendly conversation with a stranger will pass on to eventually feed hungry children. I believe Acts of Kindness will discourage entitlement in children. I believe that my 50 acts of kindness will “pay it forward” and come back around to bring kindness and a better world for our four children and your children also.

Kindness cards

I’m a goal-oriented person so unless I have a plan in place my projects aren’t at the forefront of my mind. I’ve always dreamed of being part of something big that makes a difference. But the older I get the more I realize it’s truly all about the “little things” and kindness doesn’t need to be “big” to be great or impact-full!

I’ve named this “Project Be The Good”. I have designed these cards with the hope that the Random Act of Kindness will not stop with just one act, but multiply with the card being continuously reused on the next Act of Kindness. These are business card sized so you can hold a few in your wallet the next time you notice someone who could use some kindness and attach this to your gesture. I printed my goal of 50 cards at www.whcc.com for $12. But you can of course do on your home printer on cardstock (so they last longer) or any other printing company.  kindness-card

Please feel free to use the hashtag on the card. I hope you join me on this project! And if you don’t feel you can accomplish a page of these cards, then just do one. Which reminds me of a favorite quote from Mother Teresa, “If you can’t feed 100 people, then feed just one”. Here is my Pinterest board to help inspire. And remember Acts of Kindness must not always come from our wallets. I start with my heart and then I decide what I can give on this day. Yesterday I followed a woman out of Target who had a big tag hanging out of her dress and when I told her she (blushingly) told me how grateful she was because she was on the way to her work party at a job she just started… and tomorrow my children and I will wrap gifts for the less fortunate. Be the Good… because there is indeed, so much good!

Merry Christmas,

Heather Walker

  1. Heather, this is beautiful and such a fitting reminder of the importance of humanity, especially this time of year. Thank you for sharing, the cards and your words 🙂

    Kristen and Heather – Thank you so much for posting this printable and great idea! I have a 1st grader, and as part of their holiday party we are having the kids make a gift to gift back to the community. They will be filling gallon size ziploc bags with items to make the life of a homeless child a little easier; toothbrush, paste, granola bar, apple sauce, crayons, coloring pages, etc. I’ll be printing out these cards on cardstock and they will go in the bags as well. After the party, I’ll take them to a local women’s shelter. Thank you!

    • Your heart is amazing Kristen! LOVE this SO! For some children I believe this could leave a lifelong impact doing a serving project such as this. I would love to do this at my children’s school. Thank you for sharing and caring so much.

      ps – I’m determined this coming year to get my two Kristen/in Duke friends together 🙂

    I was just handed a phone little girl at the Safeway Puyallup, Washington. After all of the ugliness that is been going on the past few days with the election, it almost brought me to tears to see somebody was so much kindness in their heart. Thank you so much.
