Willing-To-Lend-A-Hand Wednesday

Time, help, and advice are offered on Willing-To-Lend-A-Hand Wednesday. These actions don't have to be anything grand—a small gesture can go a long way. Willing-To-Lend-A-Hand Wednesday is part of Be Kind to Humankind Week, an "annual worldwide celebration of kindness" created in 1988 by Lorraine Jara.

How to Observe Willing-To-Lend-A-Hand Wednesday

Any lending of the hand to a fellow human, whether it be with your time, assistance, or expertise are excellent ways to observe the day. The day's founder has suggested observing it in the following ways:

  • Offer to bring in a neighbor's mail if they won't be home for a few days.
  • Take an older friend or relative food shopping or to the doctor's office.
  • Pick up any trash you see in your neighborhood and put it in the garbage.
  • Put recyclables and trash in their appropriate bins.
  • Wash the dishes after dinner.
  • Help a classmate or coworker with their work.
  • Don't leave things messy, clean up after yourself.
