Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. However, all opinions are my own.

Wow, 2018 flew by and now we are starting a new year. It is always the best time to reflect and add positive change into your life. One goal I have for the new year is to really be more proactive in helping others and taking the time to give back in a meaningful way. As some of you know, I have partnered with First National Bank to share the scoop on some of their amazing programs. Make sure to read how First National Bank Offers FREE Checking Accounts and how they helped shoppers Earn Rewards While Shopping This Past Holiday Season.

The thing I love most about First National Bank is that they are a company all about community and supporting people to truly be the best possible version of themselves. While most of us think about how First National Bank can help our personal finances, they also do a lot of good for local communities. As we enter the new year, I am so excited to team up with First National Bank to share 40 simple acts of kindness.

Finding ways to practice kindness doesn’t have to be a major chore – kindness and love come in many different shapes and sizes and it doesn’t take a lot to give back.
