So it’s Thursday right now and in a few days time, it’ll be my birthday! This year has flown by. Lots of amazing things have happened. Lots of awful things have happened too. As mentioned in a previous post for my birthday, rather than doing the usual night in a bar getting off my face drunk, hating life and regretting my life choices, I’ve decided to spend a day doing random acts of kindness.
Now I fully expect this to be significantly less popular than a bar and getting slaughtered. However, lots of people have been really kind, sent things that I can use to make everyone’s day a little nicer. So I’ll be joined by a few people on Sunday to do some goodness.
I’ll be tweeting on #SelflessSunday and@Albysaurus so if you’d like to follow the action, please get stuck in! For those of you who read this who are SUPER KEEN please feel free to join me. 🙂 I’ll be meeting most people at Victoria Station, London at 2pm. We’ll be starting from there. I’ll be buying as many flowers as possible in the station so that we can hand them out. I’ll be bringing books, pens, postcards, post-it’s everything we can get our hands on so that we can write out as manynice messages as possible. This was the original list:
- A meal for a homeless person
- Help an old person/person less physically able with their shopping or cross the road
- Sing for the sick
- Sing for random people to put a smile on their face.
- Write and distribute positive notes to strangers
- Tape some coins to a vending machine for the next person
- Give strangers a flower
- Pay for a coffee for the next person in the queue
- Community clean up
- Pop up yoga session for people
- Give Blood
- Give random people a compliment
We might not be able to do them all on the day but we’re going to do as many as we can and make it as fun as possible for everyone involved. 🙂
If you’re not able to make it please make sure that you just do a little good deed for the day. Tell your loved ones you love them. Help someone cross the road. Hold the door open for someone. Smile at someone!
