Today is my birthday. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know that I have a birthday tradition of giving you, my blog readers, a gift. This birthday is no different, except I’m amping it up…way up!
Recently I ran across this blog post via Pinterest. This woman actually started her own site called The Birthday Project, all stemming from the response she received from her desire to give back on her birthday. When I read this post, my birthday was just days away. I wasn’t sure how many good deeds I could complete in a day by myself, but I sure could try. And so, on this, my 39th birthday, I’m attempting 39 random acts of kindness. But I need your help!
If you feel so inclined and inspired, please commit to one random act of kindness this week. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or even cost much, it can be something little, simple, but something that will likely be very much appreciated by the recipient. Here are a few ideas (and you can read many more on this post):
- Buy the coffee drink of the person behind you in the drive through line at Starbucks.
- Hand out thank you cards to local police officers.
- Leave coins taped to a vending machine.
- Help someone put groceries in their car.
If you decide to spread a little kindness this week, leave a comment on my blog telling me about your random act of kindness. You have until Sunday, January 8, 11:59 pm PST to leave your comment with your good deed. After that time, I’ll draw one name to receive some random act of crafting kindness, this blog candy:
|Say It Loud Stamp Set by Waltzingmouse Stamps|
|Labels Sixteen Nestabilities Die Set by Spellbinders|
One more thing before I go. I recently created a Simple Flourishes page on Facebook for my blog. If you “like” my page and leave a second random act of kindness on that post, you’ll have an additional chance to win this:
|Snowflake Impressabilities by Spellbinders|
|Round & Round 3rd Anniversary Stamp Set by Papertrey Ink|
For those of you who are already a Facebook fan of my page, simply leave your random act of kindness on my status update and you’ll be entered to win. It’s that easy!
Have a great day and enjoy making someone else’s a little brighter! Thank you all for being a part of my birthday in this very special way. I’ll be posting updates on my Facebook page, so check back often to see what I’m up to today and come back on the 9th to see if you won!
