Day 1 of the 21 Days of Kindness Challenge

What better day to start this challenge than on the day that changed America forever 9-11.  
We can't erase the horror of the tragedy that happened that day BUT we can remind people that there is still some good in the world.

Day 1: Pay Forward A Surprise Treat

The Idea: Rev up the engines -- it's time to upgrade someone's day from mundane to magical with unexpected kindness! Kick off the Kindness Challenge by leaving extra change in a vending machine for the next person, or give $5 to the cashier at your favorite cafe and ask them to gift someone a cappuccino or delectable pastry during the day. If you want to step-it-up, bake or buy a sweet treat and gift it as a surprise to a hardworking someone, maybe the janitor in your building, or the friendly face at the checkout counter, or the colleague who's having a rough day. Because there is nothing quite as disarming as unanticipated kindness, and your small act just might restore someone's faith in the goodness of humanity.

  1. My RAOK today was donating crutches to my son's basketball team. It seems the teams has so many players injured right now that they have ran out of crutches. Crossing my fingers that my DS doesn't end up being one of the injured.

    What nice thing did you do today?
