When Melissa announced she was having a giveaway – 5 Random Acts of Kindness – I was reminded how much fun it is to do nice things for others. I entered into her giveaway, not thinking I’d win, but I did! Part of winning is means passing along 5 more acts. Even though the rules suggest that I use my blog to give my kindness, I decided to send 2 Random Apps and 3 Random Acts to my blog readers.
So here’s how it works:
1. Leave a comment on this post no later than 8 pm EST Monday, June 29. I’ll pick 3 comments by random, on whose authors I’ll bestow an act of kindness, and I’ll announce the winners Tuesday morning. And to fulfill my “obligation of 5” to Melissa, I will send 2 random apps of kindness and blog about it here.
My blogging prowess prevents me from capturing your email address. If you don't want to leave it here in the comments (so I can contact you if you win), be sure to check back.
2. My kindness can be anything of my choosing. It might be handmade and it might be purchased, but it will be selected just for you. It will be given to you sometime in the next 12 months. I make no guarantees that you’ll love it (or not find it odd or quirky), but I guarantee that it will be heartfelt on my part.
All you have to do, dear readers, is have a blog and be willing to pass on the kindness by creating a similar post. If you don’t blog but you Facebook, pledge to bestow a kindness on five Facebook friends. If you do neither, play the game the old-fashioned way: find a neighbor, stranger or friend in need and fill it.
Mayberry Magpie described it as a kindness dogpile, which sounds like great fun, don’t you think?
