Continuing on with my Kmart partnership, I’m sharing something that is super important to me, spreading kindness! If you are short on ideas or just need a boost of inspiration here is a post called 134 Random Acts of Kindness Ideas that will give a great list to start on.

This holiday season, it feels like people I’ve run into have been especially kind. People have held the door open for me when I’ve had my hands full with Henry, and groceries, they’ve been letting me into traffic even when the traffic is thick and busy, and there was the clerk at the grocery store who went out of his way to help me out with something, and all that goodness that I’ve been fortunate to receive reminds me to spread the love too. I always try to, of course, but sometimes, it’s so nice to have those reminders.

I’m so thankful to have all of those in my life who are healthy and happy (especially my baby son), and I really want to give to those who are not. Kmart makes it easy to give back because between 12/7 and 12/13 (today!), Kmart is donating $1 to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital for every Fab 15 toy that is purchased (up to a max of 25k). Kmart is one of the all-time leading St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital fundraising partner, and they have already donated more than 10 million this holiday season alone (!!!).

Here are a couple other ways you can support St. Jude through Kmart this season…

  • At the register: Shop Your Way members and Kmart shoppers can donate when they check out in all Kmart stores, or online via this link. As a special thank you to Shop Your Way members, Kmart is rewarding members who give back – through Dec. 27 – with a coupon for five percent back in points on their next qualifying in-store or online merchandise purchase. Points expire 90 days after receipt. Maximum $20 in points (20,000 in points) per transaction.
  • On the tree: Kmart’s exclusive 2014 collectible St. Jude bear ornament is available in-stores and online at Kmart.com. The ornament comes in two versions – a boy and a girl bear, and Kmart will donate $1 to St. Jude for each ornament purchased now through Dec. 24, with a minimum donation of $50,000.
  • Kmart’s Fab 15 holiday toy list features the ultimate toys that kids want for the holidays, from big toys that make great, unexpected gifts to nostalgia toys that remind parents of their own childhood.


Do you have a tradition of doing special acts of kindness during the holiday season? If so, I’d love to hear what they are!
