It’s Day 8 of the “Pay it Forward 2 Communities” #PiF2C 12-day challenge!
Today we have two different challenges you can choose from. Don’t forget to catch our previous blogs to read more information about the challenge.
Today your challenge is to find out what kindness means to you. To do this you make a kindness poster and hang it somewhere to remind yourself daily of those values.
To make a kindness poster, write down 10 things that you think mean kindness. For example, to us, kindness is helping someone without being asked! This would be 1 of the items on our list. Feel free to decorate the poster how you would like. Once done, take a picture and post it online tagging someone else to take part the challenge!
Mental health issues are often invisible to others. Which is why we are challenging adults to find out how to spot these signs in others and how to help them cope and heal.
We have partnered with the amazing Dorset Mind who have supplied us with information on mental health and how you can help others.
Need more support? Dorset Mind has many resources that could help yourself or your loved ones. Find out more on their website:

Here is the 12-day checklist for you to print. To take part all you have to do is complete the challenge of the day and (if you can) take a photo and post it online – don’t forget to tag us and the partnering organisation!
We will be posting the challenges daily on our social media and blog so feel free to follow us using any of these links.
