Make a difference in someone's life today!

And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.
— Acts 20:35

We went to the local grocery store and gave a lump sum of money to three of our kids and told them they could give it away to anyone however they wanted. It was so cool to stand back and see our kids in action, blessing others. The response was incredible to watch. How wonderful to show acts of kindness and to teach our kids how important kindness is!! Pay it forward and show others the love of Jesus!
 
Decided to invite 4 friends over for an afternoon of conversation and working together on our individual projects for Kindness Acts 2035. What fun and what a great feeling of accomplishment. We put together 40 hats, gloves and mitten sets. Truly it is better to give than to receive. So thankful for such awesome giving friends. With life so very hectic how special it is to take time to give to others. Thank you for the amazing idea.

New neighbors moved in next door, needless to say things were extremely hectic for them.  We had just attended the Kindness Acts 2035 meeting and  wanted to be intentional with acts of kindness. We decided to make them dinner and rake their leaves.  It was so nice to be able to help!!!

Over the summer I coached a middle school lacrosse team. I am in high school and it was my first official paid job. Another man I coached with was a single father of two children. During the season we talked a lot and I began to understand the difficulties he was having on top of the financial crisis he was in. I invited him to church, we prayed together and when the lacrosse season was over I decided to give him half my entire summer paycheck. It was the best money ever spent, so rewarding to help him in time of need!
 
I was at Jimmy Johns and decided to pay for the lunch for the car behind me. I told the cashier and they were completely shocked, they said no one had ever done that before. It was so fun to see their reaction and it felt good to do something nice for someone!

I was at the gas station when I noticed a church van parked next to me. I could hear the man and woman talking about the fact their credit card that had been declined and they did not have money for gas. I walked over to them and gave them cash to fill up the van. I handed them a Kindness Acts 2035 card and asked them to pay it forward. Such an awesome thing to help others and make an impact!

I was at the Chicago Marathon when I saw a runner go down at the 21 mile mark. I ran over to help her, she stated her leg cramped up and she could not go on, I spoke with her and encouraged her, iced and massaged her leg. After about 5 minutes I helped her back up and told her I would see her at the finish line. To see her come across the finish line and see her accomplish her goal was so inspiring. Loved being able to help!
