Random Acts of Kindness Week
February 10-17, 2014
What did you do today to make someone smile?
Day 1: February 10
Good friends are like nothing else is this world. So when my good friend emailed me this morning about an upsetting breakup, instead of emailing her back, I called her. I wanted to hear the story from her, and offer my support over the phone (since we're too far to meet face-to-face). Much better than an email, and something small I could do to help her in a stressful time.
Day 2: February 11
It's the little things that make a difference: I smiled extra big at a person who walked by me on the way into work.
During lunch, I watched a video on ways to take back control of your time and be more productive (we all could use help here right?!), recapped it with a quick Tackk, then shared it on Twitter. See it here.
Day 3: February 12
Today I wrote a hand-written note to a friend who got a well-deserved raise. She's worked her butt off and was pretty excited about it so I wanted to make her feel extra special. Thanks to Pasto for the Polaroid notecards Christmas gift this year that helped make this one happen. :)
Day 4: February 13
In honor of Galentine's Day, I sent a few of my favorite gals on Twitter a tweet with a link to a Happy Galentine's Day message. Sharing the love for strong, inspiring, amazing women is something us women don't do enough.
Day 5: February 14
Day 6: February 15
Today I donated three HUGE bags of clothes and shoes I've been meaning to donate for a long time.
I also helped an elderly woman in a wheelchair bag produce at the grocery store. She said that she decided to make stuffed cabbage so I thought I could help make her grocery trip a little easier.
Day 7: February 16
Today, my random act of kindness was for my pug. This winter has been pretty harsh and has kept my high-energy pug inside 24/7, so I took her to a small dog play time at a local dog bakery. She played hard, met some new friends and appreciated the time out of the house.
