Anonymous Compliment Day

Anonymous ’16 wants you to be excellent to each other for a day:

Too many people don’t say the nice things they think because they’re worried about how it’ll come out or because people don’t know how to accept compliments. So why not take all that worry out of it?

On November 21st, the day before Thanksgiving (so that, hopefully, you have something extra to be thankful for), make an effort to
anonymously compliment someone. Stick a letter in the mail, text them from an unknown number, send them an anonymous comment on tumblr, get someone to pass them a note without revealing you, leave a post-it on their desk when they’re not looking. Get out the niceness!

See the Facebook page for more guidelines.

Date: Wednesday, November 21
Time: All day.
Place: Everywhere
