What’s not to love about a national observance dedicated to making someone else feel good? It doesn’t take much to show your appreciation for another person, whether it’s a friend, a family member, a fellow entrepreneur or even a stranger. This is a perfect day to do something nice for your community, too. Below are just a few ideas for getting your generosity juices flowing. Check out our list, and then add to it with your great ideas!

Take a day away from business and volunteer in your community garden, at a local school or in the public library
