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 – Kickoff!

Hey y’all!  It’s October 1st – otherwise known as the first day of 31 random acts!  If you are just tuning in, this is the second year that I am hosting a challenge, to myself and others, to conduct 31 random acts in 31 days.  The project was born out of the 31 days series hosted by The Nester, and consisting of thousands of bloggers writing about one topic for 31 days straight.  This year, we even have our own website!

To kickoff my random acts, today I purchased some chocolates from a local chocolate shop, packaged them up and hung them on my neighbors’ doors!

This is what they looked like after purchasing.

Here’s them all bundled up!


And, hanging on a door!

This completed #18 – Leave your neighbor a sweet treat – on my list of random acts for the month.  I would love for you to join in, and also perform a random act of kindness this month – or all 31!  If you want some ideas for various acts, check out the infographic or my how-to post.  We also have a Facebook page and a Twitter handle.  And, if you’re reading this on a late date in October… jump right in; it’s never too late to join!

If you are wondering, there is only one rule about participating, which is to please tell someone about 31 random acts!  As I said in my original post last year, if you can get even one additional person to perform a random act in October, you will double your impact on the world!

I will be sharing my random acts on the blog, Facebook and Twitter in the hopes of inspiring others. I would love for your to share yours with us as well.  I hope that you will be tuning or joining in :)
