Anyway, I hope this challenge will be your favorite. What a great way to create a warm and fuzzy feeling for you and someone else. That feeling can keep you and others on cloud nine for a very long time. Every once in awhile I will see posts on FB about how a stranger bought someone's coffee in the drive thru or shoveled someones stairs. Whatever it may be, it IS CONTAGIOUS! Your seven day Samaritan challenge doesn't necessarily have to include monetary donations. How about putting a list together before you start? Is there a co-worker you know that could use a 7 day pick me up? Do one nice thing a day for them without them knowing you did it. That is the catch. Why do we need them to know? Also whatever you do, don't tell the whole world you did it. Keep it to yourself and in your own heart. Peace and contentment will be your reward. If you see a homeless person, give them your mittens, scarf or hat. You could also go buy them a coffee or hot cocoa if they are outside in the cold. Put a few coins in someone's meter if you notice it is about to expire. If you have an extra $5 gift card for subway or d&d give it to someone who needs it more than you. Tell your spouse to get out of the house and go hang out with some friends. Maybe your spouse needs some "ME" time? You leave the house and take the kids away for the afternoon. At work if someone is sick and out of the office and you notice they are behind with work, help them catch up without them knowing you did it! Lots of times in a work place there is a lot of negativity and if we notice work on someone's desk we automatically go into the "Holy shit they have a lot to make up when they get back." You then immediately go into your own world and think nothing else of it. BE A GOOD SAMARITAN!
Try donating time for a cause that touches your heart. Soup kitchens are looking for volunteers. I have a friend who used to make a huge dinner once a month for the Nashua Soup Kitchen. If you cannot afford a big meal, then have a few friends help out. You can all serve it together! Clean out your closets and bring your donations to the Goodwill or Google women's homeless shelters. There are so many things you can do that would be greatly appreciated! Send us some ideas out and your creativity may spark the rest of us. Do you offer any special services? Hair, makeup, massage, training or something else that could benefit someone else? Maybe you are great at doing taxes and there is a family that cannot afford an accountant due to a spouse getting laid off? Whatever your services are, donate them to someone in need. Doing it in anonymity is a wonderful way to keep a hold on our EGOS, however if you cannot do it that way then so be it! If you have or know any organizations that need donations post on the Be The Change challenge page. I am certain that someone will help out or know someone who can. Do you know anyone who needs help with errands? Post it! Who knows how far this will travel but let's keep the lines open and continue with our Universal Journey! Peace!
