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!
