Challenge: Acts Of Kindness

reindeer-xmasIt’s Dec y’all! How awesome is that? Christmas will soon be upon us. If you didn’t know by now, I’m a huge fan of this merry happy season. But while it’s easy to get caught up in decorating the house, planning parties and designing the best-menu-ever, we shouldn’t forget the real essence of this season. Giving. Building relationships. Doing good. Loving. The list goes on…

So! I’ve decided that the very first challenge we have on Peonies and Pancakes is to do one small task for someone else each day. Change someone’s day with a small act of kindness. In fact, that’s the  very thing that the people behind Change Heroes are trying to get us all to do by starting their 30 Days of Giving Bootcamp.

Unlike other bootcamps, you won’t have to pitch tents and jump through hoops. Oh, no! Those joining this bootcamp will receive an email every day of the month, challenging them to complete one small act of kindness for someone else. The task might be to pay a stranger a compliment, make a phone call to an old friend or write a note to a loved one. The bootcamp starts Dec 2 and would be the perfect way to spread a little holiday cheer. I’ve already signed up. Will you join me?
