Random Acts of Kindness planning and preparation has begun! After I posted about my plans, my mother, who works for Jim Stovall, shared my post with him. I got the coolest email from Jim after he heard about what I was going to do.
Your mom shared your Acts of Kindness blog with me. You did a great job, and if it’s all right with you, I’m going to share some of them in an upcoming column.
Meanwhile, if you’re looking for another act of kindness, you could give a book filled with your grandmother’s poetry to someone who would enjoy it. I will provide the book.
Now you may have read about him when I posted about The Ultimate Life or Discovering Joye. There are so many things I could say to describe Jim, but then we’d be here all day. I pulled this from www.DiscoveringJoye.com. Jim’s Story sums it up pretty well.
Jim Stovall has been a national champion Olympic weightlifter, the President of the Emmy Award-winning Narrative Television Network, and a highly sought after author and platform speaker. He is the author of the best selling book, The Ultimate Gift, which is now a major motion picture starring James Garner and Abigail Breslin.
That email started me thinking…again. (I know it is really dangerous!) This time I was thinking about all the wonderful responses to my kindness post. Lots of people have reached out to tell me how much they love the idea, friends and family have offered to help in any way they can, and some people have shared the things that they do all the time for others…just because. No holiday, birthday or special occasion needed. So I said to myself….self, you know what would be awesome? It would be so awesome to give this copy of Discovering Joye to someone who is doing good things for other people. See you get Joye by giving joy…get it? (I’m very punny…I know.)
So, I want to hear about the things you are doing to pass kindness on to others. It doesn’t matter how big or how small. Volunteer work, providing a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on for a friend in need, paying for a stranger’s coffee…whatever you do to pass on kindness, let me know! Fill out the form below with your Act of Kindness and a winner will be drawn on November 11th, 2013 to win an autographed copy of Discovering Joye by Jim Stovall. The winner will be contacted via the email address provided (so double check to make sure it is right!).
