Kindness Revolution Day 16: Donate to the Food Bank
It’s amazing how many opportunities to give, even in small ways, have shown up since I decided to give 29 gifts in 29 days. I just received a community flyer about a food drive to support the local soup kitchen and food bank. Perfect. I’m in. I’ll collect some non-perishable items and purchase some additional ones at my local grocery store.
Everyone has difficulties once in a while. For some people the soup kitchen is essential to get them through the rough times in life, a meal for the homeless, and a place for people who might otherwise go hungry. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life to forget about those less fortunate. But, it’s important to share the good fortune we have. No matter how difficult one’s circumstances might be, there are always other people whose troubles are worse than ours. So, today, if you can, please donate to your local food bank, offer to help cook at your local soup kitchen, take a meal to someone who has difficulty getting out, or give to someone less fortunate in your own way. By working together, we can transform the world through kindness.
If you’re just joining us for the Kindness Revolution, I’m doing my part (well, at least trying) to spread kindness in the world by giving 29 gifts in 29 days, inspired by the book 29 Gifts. And, I’m asking you to join me. If you’re just tuning in, check out the first blog in this series.
And, don’t forget to add your comments to my blog over the next few weeks because, with the help of the kind people at Care2.com, I’ll be giving away more free copies of my books next Saturday! Winners will be selected from the comments!
