Kindness Calendar: Day 3-4-5

Day 3 – “Leave a Happy Note for Someone Else to Find”

I was staying with a friend up in Green Bay on Saturday night, and I planned to leave him a happy little note when I left, but I admit, I forgot.  Instead, Sunday night I was writing out my bills (Yes, I still write checks and don’t have automatic withdrawal) and in the memo of each check I wrote “Merry Christmas”.  Whoever opens my bills, I hope it brings a smile to their face!

Day 4 – “Give Money for each bed in your house to a homeless charity”

I have one bed in my house, so after doing some research, I chose to give a financial gift to The Road Home Dane County.

Day 5 – “Count how many people you smiled at today”

Again, this was an easy one! I was helping out at a first time blood drive at MATC – Portage Campus.  I was assisting at the registration desk checking in the blood donors. I didn’t specifically count how many people I smiled at but I do know we had 27 people check in, so I smiled to at least that many people. Thank you to all the blood donors who give the gift of life this Holiday Season!

 

Kindness Calendar!

It is December 1st! How did that happen? With every new month, and especially every new year, it always seems like a good time to me to start a “habit”. I came across this Kindness Calendar on the Action for Happiness website and thought, this is great!

With everything going on in the world, we truly need more kindness. I invite you to join me on this “kindness adventure”.  Day one – complete!
