Random Acts of Kindness Week

February 9th, 2014 by | Tags: , , | Comments Off

This week, February 10-16, 2014, is Random Acts of Kindness Week.  During this week, the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation  encourages people around the world to, “[A]ttempt a new random act of kindness each day,” and we here at Cochlear Implant Online are taking part!

A gift for you

How can you help spread the spirit of kindness in your community?  Here are some listening and spoken language-themed ways:

  • Donate new books, games, or toys to your AV center.  (Ask them what’s on their wishlist first to be extra thoughtful!)
  • Send cookies, flowers, or other treats to your therapists, audiologists, or surgeons.
  • Write an email or send a letter to your child’s therapist, letting them know how grateful you are for their presence in your life.
  • Send a random note or email of encouragement to another parent of a child with hearing loss, letting them know you understand their struggles and are here to support them!
  • Tell your children you are so proud of them.
  • Do something to thank the support staff at your AV center, audiology clinic, or doctor’s office.  The people who file your papers or keep the rooms clean would love to know that you acknowledge their contribution to the environment of care.
  • Donate a pack of batteries to your audiologist’s office and tell them to pass it along to a family who struggles to afford them.
  • Make a donation to a listening and spoken language organization.
  • Pass along toys and games that were great at home therapy tools for your child to another family just beginning their journey.  You can also do this with old hearing aid supplies, pilot caps, etc.
  • Send an email to your cochlear implant manufacturer, thanking their team for all that they do.

Tell us — how will YOU spread random acts of kindness this week?
