Dandelion Moms Project Kindness :: Making a Difference in April


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.
Last month, Dandelion Moms challenged readers to help build a library in the Dominican Republic. Texas Homemaking readers helped to donate 30 books for the cause. Thank you all so very much!

Project Kindness project and activities for April include:

  •  In honor of Autism Awareness Month, you can participate in the Buddy Gives Back program ( hosted by the Buddy Cruise.

  • Support Loving Hugs' mission of providing new or gently used stuffed animals to children in war torn countries (

  • Plant flowers with your children on April 22nd, Earth Day.

  • Join your neighborhood or community clean-up on Earth Day.

  • Bring some old towels or blankets to your local animal shelter

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.
