My friend Justyna is trying to break some sort of Guinness world record, so to help her out, I signed up to do a Random Act of Kindness before the end of 2012.
Of course now that I’ve pledged to perform a random act of kindness I have no idea what to actually do. At first I thought of trying an unselfish act of kindness at home, but that’ll just flabbergast my husband… so forget that.
Besides, the RAoK is better when it’s anonymous, right? So maybe I can leave some random gift items somewhere and surprise whoever comes upon them first.
But then people are really paranoid these days, so my little gift-wrapped packages might just freak people out and end up causing some sort of widespread panic.
I also thought of maybe picking up someone’s tab at a restaurant…
But with my luck, the random RAoK recipients I choose will probably be Rich Kids of Instagram wannabes.
So yeah, forget that idea too.
Besides, I want my Random Act of Kindness to be original and AWESOME. So awesome that it’ll KILL me not to brag about it. And I won’t. I swear.
So okay, I’m off to brainstorm some more. If you decide to join my new Kindness Quest, you can find some good ideas here:
366 Random Acts of Kindness - I just discovered this blog today and I love it! This guy decided to give back by performing one random act of kindness every day of the year.
273 Kindness Ideas - This is the ideas page of the Random Acts of Kindness website.
GISHWHES needs 100,000 RAoK pledges to create a new Guinness World Record, so go! Sign up! It’ll be fun. Also, kind. :)
Have a great weekend!
p.s. I used a different drawing app today and realized too late that the background doesn’t come out white like it does with my usual one. Oops. Does it look bad? I like the white background better. You?
