Kindness Campaign October Update!

“When it comes to life, the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.”  

    ~G.K. Chesterson

Last month’s challenge was to celebrate “World Gratitude Day” by starting a gratitude journal. Thanks to all that shared their gratitude stories and kudos to those that continue to journal. As someone pointed out, “It’s impossible to feel grateful and angry at the same time, they just can’t coexist.”

“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”

  Desmond Tutu

As summer comes to a close and autumn sets in, many of us are faced with lots of leaves to clean up. Ahhhhh, the beauty of living in this beautiful suburb filled with mature trees!!! That said, this month’s challenge is simply to find a way to help someone with their fall yard work. Perhaps you have someone in your neighborhood that could use a helping hand. Maybe it’s a friend or someone you work with or someone at church. There are always people that would truly appreciate unexpected help so let’s roll up our sleeves and go find them.

As always, we’d love to hear what you do this month! You’ll find a link to email us at

Always remember…kindness is contagious!
