12 months of kindness

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

Brandon and I decided that we were going to try to go out of our way each month to do something for others. Sometimes in a small way (baking cookies), and sometimes in a big way, (the Beer Olympics!!)

Writing it down and making it public is a way to make sure that we hold ourselves to it this year. We are so thankful for all of the good we have in our lives and know that we take it for granted so often. Our hope is that these acts will be monthly reminders that we have lots to give and even more to be grateful for.

January: goods donation to the our local Humane Society (bones, bedding, food, toys, etc)
February: bake cookies for the local Fire Department
March: March Madness tournament poll (proceeds to Special Olympics)
April: plant trees (Earth day<3)
May: Valley Scholarship
June: goods donation to local Food Bank
July: Beer Olympics!!! (Proceeds to Ronald McDonald House in Hershey, PA)
August: Donorschoose.org
September: OperationShoebox.com
October: Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF
November: goods donation to local Food Bank
December: bake cookies for local nursing home

Above all, we are going to try to remember to BE KIND TO EACH OTHER, every day.
(even lulu).
