I read about Ann Curry's challenge to perform some random acts of kindness as a way of honouring the lives lost in Newton last week and I thought it was an amazing idea. Of course, we shouldn't need a tragedy to remind us to be nice to one another on Planet Earth ... it is common sense after all. But it seems like every once in awhile you need to be reminded to focus on it.
I'm going to try to document my random acts in my blog ... emphasis on 'try'. I'm also going to try to ensure my random acts don't cost me $$. Not because I'm averse to paying for things .... but I think it's far more interesting to try to do it without just plunking down money. Of course, if you want your random act to involve paying for something for me, I am all good.
Random Act #1 - I wrote a thank you note to a co-worker who organized a Christmas toy drive. I also made it anonymous so he wouldn't know it's me who wrote it.
Now to think of the next random act ...
