Lately it seems like I am constantly reading posts from fellow bloggers about how this world has brought them to tears and it breaks my heart. We are worried about the world that we are having to bring our children up in and what the future holds for them. Thankfully there are people like Bethanie from The Garcia Diaries, Rah of Wire and Honey and Mandy of The Blue Evelope in this world, that want to make it a better place. They have come up with the #ProjectStandForLove initiative that I was more that happy to promote and take part in.
In their words …“All you have to do is write a sweet note, deliver it to a friend/neighbor/stranger, and share the act on social media with the hashtag #projectstandforlove! By following these simple steps, you are SPREADING KINDNESS AND LOVE! It’s so easy and it’s life changing!”
Yesterday, my son and I decide to try and make our little bit of difference in the world. We decided that we wanted to show our local firefighters how much we appreciate them putting their lives on the line day in and day out for us. We decided to bring them some cookies that we could enjoy on their down time. We arrived at the firehouse and the firefighter that greeted us seemed genuinely shocked and grateful for our little delivery. To my son’s delight, we were invited in to see the firetrucks. We were just stepping into the garage when the bells starting ringing that they had a call to go on. The firefighter was so apologetic that they had to leave and invited us back for another visit anytime. I am not sure what was more exciting for my son, seeing the fire truck or being there when they actually got a call to go out to! We hope the firefighters all returned safely from their call.
Remember, it doesn’t take a lot to show a friend, a neighbor or a complete stranger that there is kindness and love in the world. If you would like to do your part, print out this note, add your own words of kindness and perform an act of kindness! It’s that easy to help change the world!
