Pay it forward... Random Acts of Kindness

My mother was a firm believer in committing random acts of kindness. The idea that it only takes a moment to do something nice for someone else without thought of recognition or repayment. I was having this discussion with my husband last night. I told him that if I won the lottery I would use the money to commit random acts for others like... paying to have a tank of oil delivered to someone who can't afford it. Buying groceries and having them delivered to an elderly person who lives on a fixed income. Or buying out the entire Christmas Tree lot and then having them give the trees away.

While it would seem that I wasn't the only one embracing the holiday spirit with a thought toward others. Celeste Gleason, author of the upcoming All Falls Away from Signet in January is running a contest on her site called Pay it forward.


She is challenging others to commit random acts in honor of the season and you can win a super prize package as a great motivator. While you are there check out the cover of her upcoming release it's fantastic. I'll be one of those standing in line at the bookstore when it's released.

Hey Teagan - Although I would love to take credit for her book - I think you meant Colleen Gleason :)

Great blog. I'm going to link to it on mine. Have a great day!
