In the Month of December , The Civility Center Reminds Us – “COURTESY COSTS NOTHING BUT MEANS A LOT.”

Internationally renowned as the “go to” organization for anything related to civility, The Civility Center, has created a monthly calendar that includes events, ideas, and inspiration from around the world. The Civility Calendar is available free online with the objective of encouraging people to bring their most kind, most considerate, and most civil self to all their interactions. Each month focuses on a different aspect of civility and its interaction with life, and December is : CIVILITY AND GENEROSITY.

“I believe in the Power of One, each of us has the power to make the world a better place. It starts with one small gesture, one kind word, one generous act. Civility costs nothing but means everything.” Lew Bayer, CEO Civility Experts Inc.

The message is : When we are civil, we care about others and do what we can to make life easier for others. We do this through kindness and through giving of our time and resources to help others. It doesn’t matter if you only have a little bit to give – every bit matters, and even the smallest gesture can make a difference. For the month of December, think of what you have to give others. A smile, extending a courtesy, saying thank you, stopping to help someone, making a donation to a charity or someone in need, try to do something thoughtful every day.

Every month includes an affirmation, and for December, the mantra is : ” Courtesy costs nothing but means a lot, today I will generously with no expectation of return.”
