To Be Happy…Volunteer

06/01/2013

From the article “Resolutions That Get Results” on this weekend’s USA Weekend edition:

To Be Happy…Volunteer (and eat lots of fruits and vegetables)

“The upside of volunteering is well-documented… When people contribute to their community or an organization they are passionate about, they lead happier lives, have lower rates of depression and may even live a little longer than those who do not volunteer, according to a research review of more than 50 studies.”

Make a resolution that can make a difference not only in the lives of others but your life as well. A great way to start the New Year!

I think I shared this video when CBS Evening News first broadcast the story of a man asking for a kidney for his wife.  That was a few months ago – and Jimmy Sue still hasn’t found a match.

SwillingsI am posting this in the hope that someone who reads this will know someone who knows someone who…well, you get the idea.  This is the type of story that needs sharing – please watch the video and pass it on!

Susan Garcia’s third grade class keeps track of their “Random Acts of Classroom Kindness”

“Meet someone new at recess and play together.”

This was one of the random acts of kindness the third graders in Susan Garcia’s class came up with when challenged to do something in memory of those killed at Sandy Hook Elementary last week.  It can be difficult at best to explain the unexplainable to children; Garcia came up with the idea after seeing Ann Curry’s Twitter challenge.

The kids “ran with it”, Garcia said.  What an awesome way to honor those who lost their lives.  Read the full story HERE

Another story of kindness from Texas – love this stuff!  I think you’ll like this article from U.S. News – read about the cop in Plano who writes a citation and gives the driver something more. What can you do to help someone out this season? (Hint: it doesn’t have to be money!)

In the wake of the horrible events of this past Friday, it is easy for us to get choked in fear, disillusionment, and think there is no good anywhere.  A friend posted this link on facebook as a reminder that there are still people doing good things.  We need to remember this.  We need to be part of it.  Find something you can do to make a difference in someone’s life.  You won’t regret it, I promise.  If you need some ideas, read the article HERE.
