Random Acts of Kindness!

July 6th, 2010 · 7 Comments

Today, in celebration of the Dalai Lama’s 75th birthday, Se’Lah has something very special going on in the Necessary Room!  She is inviting anyone that would like to participate to help her to build a bridge of love by doing a random act of kindness today!  I have a couple of specific things planned today.  I’ll be donating books to our library, which I do whenever we accumulate at least a full paper bag’s worth of books, and I’ll be mailing a special something to a special someone!  Along with my planned things, I will be extra mindful to go out of my way to do the kind thing while I’m out and about.  Also, something I sometimes forget about, I’ll be extra mindful to do the kind thing while I’m home with my family!

And!  Inspired by Elizabeth at retinal perspectives, I’d also like to send a little something to one of you!  If you leave a comment on this post you are included in the drawing.  I’ll pick a name at random tomorrow morning, July 7, 2010, and pop something in the mail to you! Edited to Add:  A winner has been chosen. Elizabeth at retinal perspectives, you have won a little crocheted something!  It seems very appropriate since you are the one that inspired me to have this tiny giveaway!  I’ll contact you for your address.

    VERY wonderful and generous idea, Gayle… count me in on the fun! I had big plans for participating today, but I’m down with a cold, so doing tiny kindness today… :o) ((HUGS))

    I was all set to comment about how beautiful it is that you are participating in building the *bridge of love* and then I see your giveway and got all sidetracked. 😉

    one love, my dear friend!

    Thank you for participating in today’s celebration of the birthday of the Dalai Lama. Let’s hope many acts of kindness will be performed not only today but also tomorrow.

    Have a lovely evening.

    I love donating books to the library. It is one of my favorite feelings ever. Though I generally wish that I could even donate well-loved books (I’m not quite there yet).

    Happy Kindness Day! :)

    I love your idea of donating books to the library and mentioned it in my post today about the Dalai Lama’s birthday, with a link to here. Wonderful idea.
