Our charity this year is giving to the local teenagers in need by sponsoring a tree for the Christmas tree lighting event on Dec 1st. #actsofkindness
This is a different take on an Advent Calendar and focuses on children giving rather than receiving.
I had to finish it because I really wanted to try out the number IOD stamps I won in a contest. Each little bag is stamped with the day 1-25 and filled with an act of kindness for children to act on. Thank you again, @ironorchid_design
! I love my prizes!
I happened to have this box ( 4” H x 11” W x 5” D) that was the perfect size. I painted it a “graige” and added a stencil.
I am pretty proud how it turned out. We had a horrific act of violence and murder in St. Louis yesterday. I worry about the world our kids are growing up in. I think it is so important we do as much as we can to teach compassion in as many ways as we can. Swipe to see a pic of some of the acts of kindness included . #actsofkindness #actsofkindness2018 #adventcalendar #adventcalendar2018
Selfishness it’s in 90 percent of us. We tend to judge before we gain the facts, we tend to expect before we support. I’ve learned that most people in life weather it’s your friends, relationships, we all expect yet we all really don’t have much to offer. To support or up lift a friend or stranger in need is one of the most unselfish acts you can do. I challenge all of you during the holidays to do something for someone else. Volunteer at homeless shelters/ Salvation Army/give your last dollar to that homeless man. Stop for one min and think about what benefits a stranger instead of yourself. Countless times I’ve seen people be judged via money, social status, clothes, houses, religious views, or even color of their skin. It’s sad the world we live in but at some point I hope God touches your soul. Helps you remember the real reason we are here. #Upliftabrotherorsister
My addiction counselor texted me this when I was having a hard time, and it brought tears to my eyes. It really hit home for me.
Sometimes we are stuck in a place where not a lot is happening. We may be isolating or just feeling “blah”, as I like to say, and to think that I am a good thing that needs to happen to others, really helps me get out of my own head.
Feelings follow action, so next time you are waiting around for good things to happen, be the good thing for someone, be of service, and watch the magic happen. 💫

A few weeks ago, we had a Trader Joes employee surprise us and provide our volunteers with snacks and beautiful flowers! We are so happy to have you as a neighbor! #community #actsofkindness #traderjoes
With Thanksgiving just a couple days away, I'm taking a moment to reflect on everything I have to grateful for. My heart is so full of love and gratitude for all of the special people in my life, and that includes YOU. Thank you for being such an important part of the Actor-Webs family. Your strength and love and dedication to your craft inspires me everyday. ✨
This week when you're showing gratitude to others, remember to also show some love to yourself. A really great way to feel good is to help others feel good, too. Send a love text to your friends to let them know how much they mean to you. Or better yet, pick up the phone to tell them. One of my friends called me out of the blue recently, and because talking on the phone is such a rare occurrence these days, it made me feel so loved and appreciated. You never know how a little act of kindness can make someone's whole day! ✨
What are you thankful for this week? ✨
Have an amazing Thanksgiving! 🦃

I love my little dance Adventurers! Even if they’re a little TOO honest🤣🤣Happy Tuesday Adventurers⚓️!
Anyone struggling with motion sickness out there?
🙋🏼♀️ Me too. My motion sickness will especially rear its ugly head while playing the PS4 with my gamer fiancé.
Yesterday, he came home from work after some independent research with this list full of essential oils that are good for helping with motion sickness. Completely unprompted. What a sweet, sweet act of kindness.
Ginger, Bergamot, Cardamom, Peppermint - some great additions for your oily toolkit should you also need some help in the motion sickness department! I’ve found that some Peppermint on your thumb pressed to the roof of my mouth helps out A LOT.
Stay tuned; I’ll fill you in on how the others work for me the next time Dane coaxes me into his gamer world!
“A random act of kindness, no matter how small, can make a tremendous impact on someone else's life. Be Kind, always” ✨
This one is for yesterday! I fell asleep at like 8:30 last night :/. It also kinda felt like a cop out. 🤷🏻♀️ I don’t want every day to just be a donation but it’s so easy! I don’t have direct deposit set up at my new job yet so i had to actually go to an atm and deposit my paycheck. While there, there was an option to donate to @feedingamerica
sure why not! #actsofkindness #donation #feedingamerica
“This isn’t a new concept by any means but I adore it! December is definitely a higher traffic month for ordering online and it often feels like there are deliveries being made every day. I can’t imagine how hard it is on the body making all of those extra deliveries but I know I’m thankful!
One of our first #mangermoments
is putting these snacks and drinks out for our delivery workers. We know our UPS driver by name and he is an amazing guy! Just a small way of showing appreciation .” @freshpickedgrace
You guys...I have 67 mama angels on Earth. We met on an online forum 7 years ago, all trying to get pregnant. Now 7 years later, we have seen each other through so much. Losses, divorces, so many more babies, new jobs, losing parents, new marriages, heartache and joy. Don’t ever tell me my best friends can’t live in my computer. They do. And I have been so lucky to meet many of them in person. Our kids are friends. We do our best to show up for each other when we need it most. And this week, they bought our Thanksgiving groceries (and more, because that’s what they do). I love you all fiercely. You take up such a special place in my heart. You have no idea how special this is and what it means to Sean and I. Thank you, thank you, thank you. 💕
It doesn’t have to be this extravagant, but try to go out of your way to do something nice for someone today. What may seem small to you could mean the world to someone else.

Soul FILLED. If there’s one thing we can promise you at tonight’s charitable #fashionswap
, it’s that you’ll leave richer than you came.
have that effect, as does hobnobbing with our beautiful #mncommunity
, but what we’re really talking about here is Rhiannon Fiskradatz.
After nearly a decade fronting neo-folk trio Lingua Luna, this phenomenal singer/songwriter/storyteller is back onstage solo, with a voice that, well, fills us. We feel lucky to be able to share her gift with you at @Mercympls
at 5pm this evening.
And, if we weren’t already her biggest fans, she wanted us to let you know that as an ardent #feminist
and eldest of five daughters, she urges you to give generously of your time and resources to causes that uplift women, like #AndNowSheRises
. Oh, Rhiannon, you’re #coolasfolk

Last year, November 19th was the day we, “went live,” with 1 a Week. Though some of the numbers aren’t where we want, we never thought we’d have our hashtag slapped on over 3,000 posts to this point. I appreciate everyone who has participated and been liking/commenting on our posts. If you have any suggestions on how we can make this page better, please let me know. This week we’ll be giving away TWO 1 a Week hats as gifts. These are great quality hats so perform your good deeds and share em with us! #1aweek
Thanks to my fabulous Mom, we got all the decorating finished yesterday save for a few bows and lots of pillows I need to make ♡
We also finished this year's advent calendar which was completely inspired by YOU ♡
All the tags contain the names of everyone that impacted us after S's fall from the surgeon, to the wheelchair transportation team, to my sweet family who has rallied around us in a big way, to all of you who left of notes of kindness, encouragement, well wishes, and prayers ♡
Each morning we'll hang that specific day's tag on the tree so you guys will be part of our ornaments too ♡
Anyway, I hope you never get tired of hearing me say how much I appreciate you because I truly do - every single day ♡
Off to buy some last minute supplies and to finish the Thanksgiving grocery list before the stores get too crazy ♡
How are you guys holding up so far? ♡

Flying first class to Denver 🥂
I’m a big believer in “You get out what you put in”.
Being someone who takes care of people for a living I always try to add as much value to my service as possible. Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest impression. ✨
In reflection of that service my lovely client had a word to her friends at BA to upgrade my seat. I’m forever grateful for the acts of kindness gifted to me and it teaches me to continue to do what I can to bring my best self to those I take care of.

Day 19: I'm thankful for love, happiness & kindness ⚓
A month ago, I got to capture these two as they said their vows. You could feel & see the love they had for each other! It was an honor to get to photograph their wedding & even more of an honor to see how happy they were that they became a family. Then last night I received a letter in the mail from Mr. & Mrs. Neal, I was only expecting a card (I could tell by the shape of the envelope) but the handwritten thank you note and one of my favorite photos from their wedding made me day... It's times like these that make being a photographer well worth it! ❤

~ offering love and hope on both World Mental Health Day and World Homeless Day
One in four adults will experience a mental illness at some point each year in the UK, ranging from anxiety and depression to alcohol dependence, substance misuse and psychosis. Suicide is a leading cause of death in young men and women under the age of 35, and people with severe mental illness die between 10 and 20 years earlier than the general population.
Across the globe there are more than 100 million homeless people. In England over 4,000 people sleep rough on any given night, with hundreds of thousands more staying with friends or in temporary accommodation. Living on the streets is unimaginably tough, dangerous, and isolating. You become a statistic, no longer part of society. It causes health problems and affects well-being. You live without the basic human needs of shelter, warmth and safety, and are subject to discrimination and rejection.
Think outside the (cardboard) box today - maybe buy the Big Issue? Offer love and hope to everyone, and support @mindcharity
, and other mental health and homeless charities if you can.
