INTRODUCING: Random DM’s of Kindness (#RDOK)

random dms of kindness

Do you want to spread a little bit of holiday cheer this year with a twist? Send out a Random DM of Kindness (#RDOK)!

What is a Random DM of Kindness?

Random DM’s of Kindness are similar to Random Acts of Kindness. Have you ever heard of people randomly buying coffee for the person behind them in line? Random DMs of Kindness are like that, but in the Instagram realm.  These are usually sent near the holidays and are a fun way to spread kindness. Those who send Random DMs of Kindness will choose someone who follows them on Instagram at random and send them a gift card to an online store (my example below is Amazon) OR send a positive customized message/note to them as an epic kind surprise.

Here’s how to send a Random DM of Kindness if you are sending a gift card:

  1. Scroll through your followers and choose one at random (It’s like wheel of fortune!)
  2. Go to amazon.com/giftcard and purchase an e-gift. Here’s the direct link.
  3. Enter an amount (people usually choose between $5-$10) and send the email to yourself.
  4. Once you receive the email from Amazon look at the claim code (found at the bottom of the email).
  5. Send an Instagram DM to the person you chose at random and say the following:

Happy Holidays! I’m sending you a Random DM of Kindness with a $[dollar amount] gift card to Amazon I bought for you. You can redeem it by logging into amazon.com and going to: https://www.amazon.com/gc/redeem. Then put in the claim code: “[claim code number]”.

Random DM of Kindness Example

 

Here’s how to send a Random DM of Kindness if you are sending a customized note:

  1. Scroll through your followers and choose one at random (It’s like wheel of fortune!)
  2. Write a custom message to them that you think will make them smile.
  3. Send an Instagram DM to the person you chose at random and say the following:

Happy Holidays! I just wanted to say hi and let you know how truly amazing I think you are. You are such an inspiring person and beautiful on the inside and out. Thank you for being you! #RandomDMofKindness 😃

That’s it! Once you send your DM of Kindness, do a little dance and congratulate yourself for being the awesome human being that you are. Oh and if you send one, please screenshot it and DM it to @happsters so I can feature you here and on my story!

Happy Explosion

The Ultimate Random Acts of Kindness Movement - Happy Explosion

As you may know, I created this blog in an effort to spread as much happiness as possible. The world needs more happy people!

I had this new idea while falling asleep the other night (when some of my best ideas come to me) and I got so excited that I could barely fall asleep. I’ve decided to create something called the “Happy Explosion”. Here’s how it will work:

1) Every week I’m going to spread happiness in a different way and leave it up to YOU to tell me how.

2) I’ll give you some options (you can come up with your own if you want!) and I’ll take the most popular happy act from the comments to do.

3) I’ll announce what happy act I’m going to do on Monday and then post about the experience on the next Saturday.

4) If you have a blog, I’d love for you to post your random act of happiness there.  I’ll post a link up on Saturday’s post so we can all see each other’s Happy Explosions of the week!

How does that sound? Ready for the first week?
