Dandelion Moms Project Kindness :: Making a Difference in March


As you all know, I contribute monthly articles to Dandelion Moms, a place for beautiful, strong and resilient moms to gather online. Recently, the Head Dandelion herself, Melissa Northway, started Project Kindness - a simple idea with great potential. Melissa writes, "Much like a dandelion seed that blows in the wind landing at different places – acts of kindness can also be far-reaching. We don’t always know how much a simple act could affect someone’s life."
The best part about Project Kindness is the ease of partaking in the list of activities Dandelion Moms provides and the gratification of knowing you have had an impact on someone's life.

Project Kindness project and activities for March include:

  • Write a nice note to a friend or family member and tell them how much they mean to you.

  • Donate some canned goods for your local food-bank.

  • Bring some treats to your local fire station.

If you complete any of these Project Kindness tasks, Melissa asks you share them with Dandelion Moms on their Facebook Page as well as Twitter and Instagram (make sure to use #dmprojectkindness). You are also more than welcome to post your kind acts (and photos) on Texas Homemaking's Facebook page.


  1. Thank you for supporting the library project! Can you believe there are kids in the world who rarely see two books together let along entire libraries of wonderful options?!

  2. Thanks Rebecca! We homeschool and have hundreds of books from very early readers to classical works. I cannot imagine a child without books! I think this may be a project our homeschool group may try to help with as well! I will add the link too.
