Do Something Challenge – Week 1

Happy June! Happy Monday! And happy first day of the Do Something challenge!

(In case you couldn’t tell, I’m just a tad excited.)

The Do Something challenge is finally here, and I’m SO thrilled to share this with you guys! In case you didn’t read last week’s introduction post, I’ll give you the rundown below.

For the month of June, I’ll present a weekly challenge for you guys, both here and on Twitter. The post will go up each Monday, and I’ll also give a shout-out on Twitter with the hashtag #DoSomething. The more people who participate, the more people we reach. The word may be scary at times, but it’s also full of wonder and hope and love. Let’s focus on the latter.

So, without further ado, I present this week’s challenge:

Perform two acts of kindness.

If it sounds incredibly simple, that’s because it sort of is. And that’s the point I want to make with the kick-off challenge: the little things we do add up to become big things. The smallest act of kindness can make a huge difference in someone’s day. Here are just a few examples:

– Return someone’s cart at the grocery store.

– Is there someone behind you in the drive-through? Pay their bill.

– Hold the door/elevator for someone.

– Offer your seat to someone in need.

– Compliment someone.

– Visit your neighbor, even if it’s just to say hi.

– Say good morning!

And there are plenty more things you can do–these are just to get the ideas flowing. Actions that seem commonplace can turn a person’s entire day around.

If you share your acts of kindness on Twitter, I’d LOVE to hear about them! Use the hashtag #DoSomething and @ me @MichelleA_Smith.
