Thursday Thanks – Social Networking

19/07/2012

I was talking to to friends about how a group started that has helped people impacted by the wildfires.  It began as a facebook conversation asking how to help, finding others on different groups and pages doing the same, and creating a facebook group then to connect everyone and mobilize efforts.  Suddenly we had hundreds of people connected and working towards one goal.  All of this in a couple of days!

For all of the concerns that come with social networking (and many are legitimate concerns), there has been so much good that has come of being connected in this way, instantly.  I am thankful for those who were skilled enough in technology to provide the rest of us the opportunity for a great network!

100 Acts Of Kindness Project

31/01/2012

I found a great blog tonight while looking for stories about kindness, and an additional Kindness Challenge.  Check out 100 Acts of Kindness from Toddler Approved:

By the title of the blog you can tell it’s activities with kids, and they can be adapted in many ways no matter the age range.  I know it’s already started but there is still plenty of time! Another great project to make a difference in your world.  You can check their facebook page too.

Have fun finding ways to be kind!

Celebrating One Week!

09/01/2012

Well, I hit the 7 day mark! Finding something to write about every day that had to do with kindness. Would love it if you liked the facebook page and get in on some conversation on the topics. For now, I’ll leave you with a quote a friend was kind enough to send me:

“You never know when a moment and a few sincere words can have an impact on a life. “
– Zig Ziglar

Whose life will you impact with kindness this week?
