31 Random Acts – Second Recap

Hi y’all.  Apologize for the delay in providing an update on 31 Random Acts on the blog.  Have you been following along on Instagram?

For this recap, I want to continue to thank our strong and mighty group of *now* nine participants with 51 total acts completed thus far!   If you’re interested in participating, it is never too late to jump in and spread some good around this month.  Here is the link to the how-to post if you want some more information on how to get started.

As for my challenge, I hope to finish my ten remaining acts in the next week or so.  But, for now, here is a flashback to my favorite acts during the second recap.

A big thanks to my cousin, Megan, who devoted a big chunk of her weekend visiting D.C. to helping me complete random acts.  Here is one of our favorites from that weekend - a drop off of Halloween fun for patients at a local children’s hospital.

Megan and I also enjoyed giving Subway sandwiches to the homeless.  Most were very grateful for the food!

I left flowers and a little note on a car in the parking lot of a church hosting an AA meeting.  I have no idea if the person was actually participating in the meeting, but I hope that he/she enjoyed the flowers and encouraging words anyways!

Here is a reminder image of my random acts.  I still have #2, #6, #11, #17, #19, #20, #21, #22, #26, and #28 left.  A surprisingly hard one: “Compliment the first five people you encounter one day.” Any ideas on how to complete my acts are greatly appreciated! :)

31 Random Acts – First Recap

I want to take some time to thank everyone for the kind words, tweets, emails, texts and likes these past few weeks regarding 31 random acts!  I’m so grateful for your support and enthusiasm for this project.  I’m also very happy about the impact we are making on the world through our acts!  So far, we have a strong and mighty group of eight participants with 40 total acts completed thus far!  Shout outs to Jan, Kelly, Maria, Erica, Suzie, Kim and Patrick for your contributions!  Like I said in my original post, it is never too late to jump in and spread some good around this month.  Here is the link to the how-to post if you want some more information on how to get started.

As for my challenge, I’ve completed eleven different acts so far!   Some of my favorites include:

On my way to work one morning, I popped into Starbucks and bought the girl behind me her latte.  She was really happy and grateful!  This is a selfie of me celebrating the random act.

 

I wish I could see the look on the person’s face when he/she opens this box of sunshine.

I wrote a letter to one of my favorite local establishments thanking them for their consistent excellent customer service.  It made me feel really good to put some of my gratitude into words!

I realize that the blog has been a little quiet this month.  (More details on the silence soon!)  But, each of the acts have been posted to the Instagram account, Facebook page and Twitter handle (use #31randomacts).  Please follow along, and let us know if you are conducting any acts!
