August 2011 - RAKs (& Project 25)

Well in an attempt to clear the back log, I am uploading the August RAKs here too! So i hope you like! 

I have found it quite satisfying to have been able to write out my RAKs in my "Scrapbook". Not only does it act like a diary for me (as i don't keep a regular one of my own) it reminds me of all the different things YOU CAN DO for others. I know that some people believe that one person can make a difference, and i agree but the more people we have making a difference, no matter how small, the difference happens faster! I ask that if you want to make a difference like me, that you make a small commitment to doing so. It doesn't have to be something as crazy as doing a WHOLE YEAR of kindness but if you make a commitment and stick to it, you too can make a differnece in your community!

I love hearing about what others are doing in their own homes, towns, cities and countries! So please, if you have done a kind deed for another and want to share it with me I would love to hear about it! As i am sure a lot of others would too. That's why i originally created the group Project 25 - Random Acts of Kindness, so we could share our kind deeds together and inspire each other to make a difference!
You can use the - Project 25 Facebook Page and share your good deeds there or in the comment section of this blog. You can also email the Project 25 Email address.

I hope you are enjoying the ideas and the journey i have been on! Its been hard, challenging and most of all fun and rewarding!

Thanks for all the support so far and i look forward to hearing from you in the future!

Finally finished doing the scrapbooking for 2011's RAKs...

I have finally completed the scrap-booking for the last of the RAKs for last year! I know i completed the whole year of kindnesses but it is nice to be able to show them (in a pretty format) to my friends and family! :) The biggest problem now is having to scan them all in two cards at a time! But at least they are done!

So here are the ones for July. I had finished these ages ago, just have been slow to upload them to here! :)

I am hoping that i can scan the rest in today and then just slowly release them to you all! Either that or  i will go crazy and do a super upload! :D lol!
Hope you are all doing well!

Home from Holiday...

Hi again everyone,
Well i have just spent 9 days in the beautiful and tropical Indonesian Island of Bali! I had a great time and apart from a few days where i was feeling a bit sick (what is termed "Bali Belly") I got to do and try a whole range of new things. And i didnt stop my Kindnesses over in Bali either. I even got to share with some friends of mine about this project which in turn had them doing kindnesses for others!

We were sitting in Burger King (yes its not very healthy i know... but they did have free WiFi) and i bought a friend of mine a drink. She tried to give me the money back but i didn't let her (she even tried to be all ninja about it... and sneak it into my pocket) but i figured out what she was doing. I told her that she couldn't give me the money as it was my kind deed for the day. Then i explained about this project. After a while of explaining 365 days of Kindness, the two guys we were with gave their free ice-cream vouchers to some kids across from us (you got a free ice cream when you bought a particular meal). Then instead of leaving our rubbish on the table we put it in the bin so the staff didn't have to clean it all up! My friends then proceeded to do a few other little kindnesses for people around us and i was left moved and encouraged!

Thanks to those friends of mine, you know who you are! :) I love it when people take such an interest in being kind to others! :) you guys rock! :)

I hope you have all been having a wonderful start to your new year, just as i have! I will be putting the kindnesses up again soon. I know i am really behind... but i will be scanning them in soon! :)
