Two years ago I had the idea of giving a $50 bill to a bell ringer, instead of giving a dollar here and a dollar there I was going to make one bell ringers day. It didn't work. The guy didn't care.
Last year I had the idea that I would give the guy who stood at my freeway exit with a sign asking for money, a Meijer gift card. I thought I could help his family with groceries or toys for Christmas. . . He wasn't there consistently, everyone was cynical and said he has a job and a home and I was crushed.
This year I'm doing something different. This year I'm doing something for others. I can not be talked out of it, I can not be disappointed. This year I am spreading holiday cheer
I honestly don't have it all planned out just like she does on that blog above. I don't know even know if I will be changing what I do every single day. BUT I do know that I will be starting off my 24 acts of random kindness today!
****Let's bring in that holiday spirit people! 24 random acts, 24 days ... want in? It can be whatever you want it to be...but let's light up someone's day****
Later today I have to go to the grocery store and I will be handing out these to people I come across:
Not a big deal? No.
BUT: If someone handed this to you, wouldn't it brighten your day a little? I hope so!
