From 2011 to 2016 I was pleased to be able to have done 365days where I did a kind deed every day(& 366days in the leap year)!
In 2017 I am doing it again...my aim is to inspire others into action by showing them how simple it is to do kind acts for others. I do this by doing a kind act a day. I do this by sharing my story and some ideas for living a kinder life. Kinder for others, kinder for ourselves, kinder for the planet. Welcome to 365days of kindness!
I apologize for the quality... i am just learning how to use my new phone camera! And i don't think i have quite got the gist yet! I was encouraged to contact the editor of this page Malcolm Quekett as i suggest you do too if you live in Western Australia (firstname.lastname@example.org ). I hope that we have more of these types of articles in our newspapers from now on! It looks promising!
I thought you all might enjoy the article.
I am starting to think that i should also include what people have done for me that is a RAK. I mean i find that the more i give to others the more i receive. I have some awesome friends - as i am sure everyone does! They do things for me that i am so grateful for. From little things like buying my dinner, to buying me a drink (as i had this week when i finished my last exam!). I have even had people/strangers compliment me at the shops and people congratulate me on my achievement of completing my masters that i have only met once or twice! I am so grateful for everyone in my life as they have helped me to be the person i am today! So THANK YOU to those who have supported this project, Project 25 -Random Acts of Kindness or for even just kept me sane during my life!
I just wanted to say that before i included the RAKs from April ....
Hope you enjoy these! Had a lot of fun again... and some things might seem ordinary but i believe they have been received with gratitude!
Hello again lads and ladies, This is just an update on whats been happening in the last few weeks! No more uploads just yet... i know I'm a little slack... and for that i am sorry! But i have just finished my masters degree at University, so i have a little more time to commit to getting this out there in the future! :)
Well after Facebook telling me that the 'group' i had, that this blog was inspired from, was to be archived. I have managed to create a 'page' for "Project 25 - Random Acts of Kindness". I have very little experience with the pages and groups and even blogs... as you can probably tell my sporadic blogging here... But Project 25 was my first idea of how to make the world a better place.
For those that do not know the history of Project 25, i will share a little of it here with you. On my 24th Birthday (June 2009) I decided that i didn't want presents the next year... instead i wanted other people to do stuff as a 'gift' to me and send me a small report. Then i began to realize what a small vision that was and wanted people to try and do as many Random Acts of Kindness as they could in a whole year. So that by my 25th Birthday (hence Project 25) there would be people all over the world helping out others in their communities and with people they had come in contact with, no matter how fleeting!
So in the time between my birthdays (June 2009 - June 2010), a whole year we managed to write approximately 35 Random Acts of Kindness Reports to share - if you are interested you can always check out the Facebook page in the 'Photos' as i have now uploaded the photos of Project 25's reports! They are amazing! Worth a read! :)
So i was trying to encourage people to be more active and this year was my new attempt for Project 25 - Random Acts of Kindness 2011. I wanted to be a great role model so my wacky idea of 365 Days of Kindness came to fruition. I wanted to make sure that this year we had more than only 35 reports so one for everyday has been my challenge. I have still been receiving some RAK reports from others and that has been amazing... but i keep trying to encourage others to report what they are doing in their communities! If you're on Facebook and want to tell me an RAK you can always Private message me and i can put your kindnesses up with mine (and keep it annonymous if you want!). :) The original aim for Project 25 was 1000 kindnesses in a year.... and i probably have about 375 at the moment... so please feel free to add as many as you like of the things you have done this year to the facebook page!
Well, thats all from me at the moment. I want to thank everyone who has been supporting me, Project 25 - Random Acts of Kindness and 365days-of-kindness.blogspot.com as you have all made a really big difference in my life... and those around you by acting kindly!
