50 Acts Of Kindness in 15 Days
--by Bluebell, posted Jan 14, 2011
I had decided to do as many acts of kindness as possible during the month of September, and I must say that I have surprised myself. I I never thought that I would get that much done in such a little space of time.
I haven't done anything extra-ordinary, but I have been making sure to keep doing them. For example today is the birthday of a friend from HO and also from a very good friend (almost like a sister) from PT so I decided to top up their birthday presents by donating a small amount to a charity on their behalf that is going to allow 1 child to have clean water for a year, and 1 child to have medical care for 3 months, that didn't cost me the earth and I think it gave their birthdays a RAOK touch.
Other things I've done include:
- sending a card to a person I know is going through a rough time with some comforting words;
- leaving smile cards and kindness stones in different places for people to find;
- I gave chocolates and a kindness stone to my postman yesterday, it was raining and he was completely soaked, so it was lovely to see him smile;
- I helped a friend studying for her exam and offered to help her for as long as she needs until the exam.
These are just some expamples, I've done lots more little things wherever I can and they've made my heart sing.
I've been keeping a note, I'm halfway through the month and I've already done 50 random actos of kindness. I'm hoping I can reach 100 :)
Wish me luck!
