Posts Tagged ‘50 Not So Random Acts of Kindness’

Okay, so I did something totally off the wall this week for my 3rd week of acts of kindness.  I did something nice for me!  Sound like cheating?  Well, I almost never do things just for me, so I don’t think it is 🙂  So what did I do?  I bought myself a beautiful bracelet that is full of meaning.  Each color of bead stands for something different on it, and it has cute little charms too.  I’ll post a picture of it when I get it!  I’m so excited!

Any suggestions for next week?

I got the idea last year to try to do 150 kind things throughout what was left of the year at that time.  I didn’t manage to do it, it was too much and my ideas were too few.   I still very much want to do it though, so I’ve been trying to figure out how to go about it.  I’ve decided to change it to 52 acts of kindness, one per week for the next year.  I’m going to keep track of them on here, although I won’t be giving any detail.  I’m not doing it to receive any kind of praise, I just want to keep track so I have ideas to draw from in the future.  If you have some ideas, I’d love to hear about it.  What acts of kindness can you come up with?  I’m going to try to keep it simple but meaningful.  If you’d like to join me, I’ll post my kindness each week.  Post what you did in the comments section or put a link to your blog with an explanation of what you did!  I’m excited about this fun adventure!

Added Later:

I am posting all of my 52 Not so Random Acts on Fridays, that way if I choose to do something annonymously, it will hopefully not be given away by posting the day I give it.   Posts that seem very vague, are probably because the item was given anonymously.

I’ve decided to embark on a mission. I am going to do 150 nice things for random people, neighbors, people I know, etc between now and the end of the year. There are 186 days left this year. I’m so excited. I’d like to, as much as possible, avoid repeats, so I need lots of great ideas. If you have any suggestions of things that could be done for just about anyone and don’t cost a lot of money (on a tight budget over here), please share! My plan is to post about all of them, so that I can keep track. Not many people read this blog, so I feel reasonably confident that the people I am doing things for won’t find out who it was, unless I want them to know. I’ve found a few suggestions online. Here are some of the ideas I’ve found:

1. Watch someone’s children for an hour or so, so that they can have some quiet time.
2. Write loving letters to those who are important to me.
3. Write a letter to a child or send a small gift to a child by mail.
4. Pay for something for a person in line behind me.
