Helping you get through tough times

Acts of kindness nominations

There have been some tragic stories in the news over the last few days about deaths linked to alcohol consumption and #NEKnominations.

starsAlcohol consumption 

Sadly, deaths linked to alcohol consumption are nothing new in Ireland and peer pressure has always been an influence on how much we drink.

Not to be lecturing anyone on the use of social media or resisting peer pressure, the concept of #NEKnominations can be changed for the better.

Acts of kindness 

A couple of people decided to start #RAKnomination – Random acts of kindness nominations – and it’s great to see it’s taking off! It’s a simple idea; let’s stop calling on each other to do harm and start calling on each other to do good.

We can’t turn back the clock and save those young people, but we can try to prevent any more harm. Remember, if you feel something isn’t right or it makes you feel uncomfortable, don’t do it.

Whatever situation you might find yourself in, it’s never too late to say, “Stop. I don’t want to do this”.

A random act of kindness. We’ll be posting ours soon. You have 24 hours…
