Welcome to our “Jolt of Joy” newsletter. Last week, Cracklz shared how to crack open Christmas crackers! We hope you enJOYed either making your own or popping some open for New Year’s! Starting in 2021, our newsletter will be published once a month instead of weekly. Sprinklz is being featured for January as a reminder to be kind to yourself and others. So, let’s sprinkle kindness like confetti with Sprinklz!
My favorite mug has the saying “Sprinkle kindness like confetti.” I use it every day because sprinkling kindness is something I’ve tried to do since I was a young girl. It’s a way of life I learned from my beloved parents. This motto is incredibly important because it’s amazing to see how much the smallest act of kindness can make a huge impact in someone’s life. Kindness is also contagious, so the more kindness you show, the more it will spread. Do not hold back; a simple act of kindness can create a ripple effect!
And how joy-full is confetti – it’s bright, fun and makes people happy. I believe that we all should be sprinkling kindness everywhere and to everyone. I created the word “kindness” from scrabble pieces this weekend, as shown in the photo above.

Ways to Sprinkle Kindness like Confetti with Sprinklz
It’s so easy to be kind and it makes the world a better place.
- Be kind to yourself: You can never really be kind to others if you are not kind to yourself first. Kindness comes from within, and that is the best way to sprinkle it on others.
- Be generous: Give something to others. Share your blessings without expecting anything in return.
- Be nice to everyone: Treat everyone well and be nice. This creates a ripple effect.
- Be positive and spread positivity: Being a positive drop in an ocean of negativity goes a long way.
- Inspire people: A smile, a helping hand or encouragement can brighten someone’s day.
Be kind and be the one who sprinkles it into the world! Here’s a cute video:
Random Acts of Kindness
When you do something nice for someone without expecting anything in return, it’s called a random act of kindness. I challenge you to be kind every day! Make the extra effort to make someone else feel special and cared for. Here are a few ideas:
- Visit with the elderly (during Covid it can be done virtually).
- Pay for the person’s food behind you in line at the drive thru.
- Write a letter to someone who has touched your life and let them know how much they meant to you.
- Compliment a stranger. Do they have a nice shirt or a beautiful smile? Tell them!
- Grab some sidewalk chalk and write a fun message to brighten someone’s day.
- Ask someone how their day was and really listen to their answer.
- Send flowers to someone for no reason.
