I read this post by my bloggy friend Lara over at The Golden Seven some time ago, and I immediately knew that I wanted to follow her example. To celebrate turning 37 earlier this year, Laura did 37 random acts of service/kindness to others. She picked up trash with her daughter, gave money to a homeless person, mailed a letter to a friend, paid for the car behind her in a drive-through, taped exact change to vending machines, and left candy bars and even gift certificates on the cars of perfect strangers.
I have thought about this project a lot over the last few months, and with my birthday coming up in October, I am wondering how I can work this into my life. I am trying to scale back my "projects", but this one combines my two favorite things: Service & Birthdays! It's a no-brainer! I will, however, have to serve in my own way, since I am of limited time and means. I will let you know how it goes, though. And if you try this out, please let me know about your experience as well!
