The kids are having fun with me, spreading #26acts of kindness. Our 5th act was a simple one that cost me about $1.50. On our way out of the grocery store we grabbed a couple of Hershey bars in the check out line and I wrote note to attach to each one wishing the recipient a Merry Christmas and asking them to pass it on! On our way through the parking lot the kids each got to choose a random car and we put the candy bars under the windshield wiper for some lucky driver to find. We hope it brightened their day!
I told you how much this act cost me because I’ve seen some people say they’d like to join in this movement but they can’t afford to. Being kind doesn’t require money. Let someone with rammy kids go in front of you in the check out line, hold the door for a stranger, thank your letter carrier or delivery driver for working so hard in the cold weather, write a letter or send a card to someone who could use a kind word. Those things and many more are all free and might just make someone’s day. Who knows how THEY’D pay it forward?!
If you’re on Twitter or Instagram you should take some time to look through the #26acts hashtags. The kindness people are showing random strangers will bring tears to your eyes. It’s incredible. Read more about where this idea came from in my first #26acts post, and find all of my #26acts posts here to give you some ideas on how you can join in and pay it forward! And please comment, tweet me, post on my Facebook wall, or email me at pandorasdeal (at) gmail (dot) com and tell me about your #26acts! I’d love to share them with my readers and get inspired by your acts of kindness!
