A few days ago, I received an email from Michelle of the blog So Wonderful, So Marvelous, telling me about how she made her recent birthday SUPER special. She decided to perform 34 random acts of kindness, one for each year of her life. Why does she do this? Well, because she shares my philosophy and writes, "It's amazing what a little kindness can do."
Michelle documented each act of kindness through words and photos. They include leaving treats for her mail carrier, making donations to various non-profit organizations, sending a thank you note, leaving lotto tickets for her waitress (which I am totally stealing and using in the future!), taking a "huge bucket filled with roses to the nursing home to have the staff put in the rooms of patients who don't get many visitors," and so many more!
You can read them all right here and get inspired!
Also, Michelle encouraged her blog readers, family, and friends to participate as well, and so many of them did! Her birthday brought so much happiness to the world because of her initiative!
And in addition to the blog post, this event was documented with video which you can watch right here:
So ya know, I turn 30 on August 29th. Seems like a perfect opportunity for a 30 Random Acts of Kindness project, dontcha think??? I might have to start planning a little sumthin sumthin. Thanks Michelle, for being such a great influence!
