Day 142: Random Acts of Kindness Day 4: Healthy Surprise!

The first thing I have been doing every morning this week is opening up the Random Act of Kindness site, before Twitter, Facebook or one of 3 email boxes. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the suggested “act of kindness” is for the day.

Today is perfect for my son and I. I don’t work from an office with other people so my initial reaction was “how wiill I pull off this one”, but I have a group of people that will love this “kindness act” as they are all under the age of 4!

Day 142: Give 142

Today’s “Random Act of Kindness” in honour of the “Extreme Act of Kindness Challenge Week” and is to bring a surprise treat to your friends or coworkers. I work solo from home so other than my dog and son no one would benefit from treats at my house. Today happens to be “music class” day on our schedule. I do a music class with a group of very generous Mom’s that support me in my GIVE’s all the time. I am thrilled to bring in a selection of healthy treats and snacks for both the kids and Mom’s for after our music class today.

As I have said many times before I think Mom’s are the hardest working people as there jobs never end – day or night- and there is no one that deserves to be more recognized and given a little treat than a room full of them!

Cheers to every Mom, every day that works so hard to raise their kids. You all deserve a big treat today!

Time Commitment: 20 minutes to gather snacks and stop and buy a few

Cost $10
