What’s it’s all about?

#betheloveDC is An Acts of Kindness Revolution.

What if we changed the way people think about community service?  What if it wasn’t just about group projects, but an individual lifestyle?  

What if we all noticed the person next to us and did an act of kindness for them?

From March 17 to March 31, let’s try an experiment. Instead of only doing group community service projects, let’s turn service into a daily lifestyle.  For these two weeks, take a look at the world around you and find someone to do one random act of kindness for.  We want everyone to know that, no matter what is going on in their life, they are loved.

How to get involved:

1.) Click the button below and print out the sheet of cards.  Whenever you do your act of kindness, hand the person the card inviting them to join the revolution.  Chances are they will want to pass the kindness forward.

2.) Tell us about it!  Comment below with what you’re doing so we can all be inspired by each other.

3.) Spread the word!  Feel free to use social media to let the world know what you’re doing.  #betheloveDC

4.) Celebrate with us!  We’re going to celebrate together everything that happened over the two week experiment during Easter services at Capital City Church on March 31st.  You are invited to join the celebration!

How you do it is up to you.  Every situation will be unique.  The one thing we all have to give is love.

12 Ways to Be The Love:

  • Pay for the person behind you at the drive-through or at a Starbucks.
  • Donate used books to a library.
  • Give to the homeless.
  • Help someone with yard-work.
  • Help clean someone’s house.
  • Return shopping carts for a store.
  • Listen to a friend in need.
  • Cook a meal for a friend.
  • Be kind to someone you dislike.
  • Help someone whose car is broken down.
  • Let someone go in line ahead of you.
  • Just say something nice to someone.

But don’t feel limited to just this list!  Be as creative as you’d like!
