Thank you to everyone who participated in our annual Random Acts of Kindness blogs in the month of December. As always, it’s heartwarming to hear about all of the things you are out there doing for others. Last week, I loved reading about Ellen giving her Pi Shawl to her neighbor (an “itty bitty thing, traveling to Oregon for Christmas”.) Can’t you just imagine how much she must have loved receiving that? I also liked Alice’s idea of handing out Starbucks gift cards to Salvation Army bellringers. I want to remember that for next year. Those folks stand out in some pretty cold weather, giving up their time to ring that bell.
Karen and her daughter gathered up their spare and outgrown coats, mittens and hats and took them to a local women’s homeless shelter. Jennifer was able to help someone from her Sunday School class who has been out of work. Lisa donated several copies of a movie to the Ronald McDonald house in honor of a friend who had passed away. Beth and her daughter handed out cups of Instant Ramen Noodles and bottles of water to people holding signs, asking for help. And the list goes on and on. I think you all have been more creative and intentional with your RAK’s this year, than ever before.
Today is the last day to leave your latest RAK reports in the comments. Tell us what you have been up to this week, as you’ve been out and about, helping others! We’ll randomly draw winners next week. For this past week’s contest, we’ll be sending 2 skeins of The Loopy Ewe Solid Series yarn, 1 pattern, and a tub of our Soak’s Heel Creme to Claire in CA and Michelle in CA. (Go, California!)
