The Kindness Chronicles

November 7, 2012

Be thankful. Be grateful. If you are content with what you have and where you are you will be more likely to be able to turn outward and be kind, be generous.

So that we can prepare ahead of time (I know I’m going to try this out) today I want to spotlight Tracie over at tsj photography. She is an amazing person and has a fabulous idea for the holiday season. How about putting together an “advent calendar” that has a random act of kindness to perform – instead of sugar to consume. The following is posted with Tracie’s permission.

Some of our activities included in the photos below:

  • Taping candy canes to ATM machines around town
  • Bringing the girls riding instructor {and barn manager} hot cocoa and a muffin early one morning
  • Taping quarters to vending and toy machines around town
  • Grocery shopping for the sole purpose of putting it in the “Food for Families” box in the entryway of the store
  • Plugging meters around town {and lots of fun explaining to the girls what “plugging” a meter meant!}
  • Donating 72 stockings with treats, candy and a craft for second graders at a school in need
  • Ringing Salvation Army bells
  • Handing out Starbucks gift cards {$5.00 value each}

Some of our activities without photos:

  • Paid past due library fees for 5 people
  • Donated a poinsettia to the girls school
  • Bought and donated toys for “Toys 4 Tots”
  • Brought the girls teachers their favorite Starbucks drinks
  • Brought treats to the employees of our local Post Office branch
  • Purged from the girls personal “library” and donated to a school library in need

I’m in. How about you?
