Renewed Purpose – #26 Acts

Posted on: January 3, 2013

Now that my 40th Birthday Project is complete, I find myself in “Random Act of Kindness Withdrawal” (if there even is such a thing!)  I have read many articles and blogs about people doing kind things for others in rememberance of the 26 students and teachers who lost their lives in the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting on December 14, 2012.  As a teacher myself, this hits very close to home.   It simply broke my heart to learn of this tragedy and I am still affected daily when I see my children and students returning back to school after the holiday break.

I have decided to perform another 26 random acts of kindness, but this time each act will be either student or teacher focused.  I will create new website cards with a dedication section so each recipient will know the purpose of the act and whose memory is being honored.  I also plan to send a card to the Sandy Hook post office for each act of kindness I perform with hopes that they will forward the card to the appropriate family.  I want each and every one of them to know their child/family member continues to make a difference in the lives of others despite this horrible tragedy.

Join me on my mission!  If you perform an act of kindness, please post to Twitter with hashtag #26acts.  If you are a Facebook junkie, you can “like” the pages 26 Acts or Acts of Kindness, then post to their wall the things you are doing.

All it takes is one act of kindness to make a difference in the life of someone else.  Be the change!  Make a difference!  Start small.  Even something as simple as a smile or a compliment can have amazing impact on someone’s day.

Be inspired and join in on the fun!  🙂

Tamie! You are so awesome. I’m going through your stories and you are inspiring me to get my rear in gear with some of the things I have been wanting to do. Thanks for the push!
