Would you do the same for someone else?

I just love seeing these examples of Random Acts of Kindness!  Doesn't it make you wish you had the money to do something like this? 

Well guess what!?  You don't need MONEY to do a Random Act of Kindness and you can start RIGHT NOW!  

I bought this book the first time so that I could help my husband who was always asking me for ideas of how he can help me with my fibromyalgia and degerative discs and depression.  He read through the book twice.  And then I gave it away online in a giveaway. 

Realizing that I missed the book and wanted a copy for our home for ideas on how to help anyone (including Random Acts of Kindness) I bought the book again for us to learn how to do random acts of kindness at home (first) because I thought it would be an easier place to start and should start.  But you know what?  There's no place that you "should" do it.  So if you can begin where you feel most comfortable, then please do.

So, if I can get 10 thoughtful replies to this blog entry,  I am going to again have another GIVEAWAY of this book.  You can also purchase the book for yourself at: 

 and the kindle version is LESS than $5.00

When commenting, please tell me IF you would be interested in joining my Book Club on FaceBook and reading this book and sharing together about it.  Thank you!


  1. Hi Carolyn, I am always trying to get my youngest son and many of my nieces and nephews to be kinder and to think of the "big" picture when they have an opinion about something or someone..... I think todays younger generation is very big on passing out judgement (facebook!) without thinking about causes...why does this person act the way they do? And I encourage them to make friends with that person and to be a positive influence in their lives instead of being judgemental. To make a difference instead of making comments. I do this in my own life with every chance I get. Kindness goes a much longer way than citicism or ignoring a problem. :) I am new to your blog, I like it very much!

  2. Hi Jodi! Wow, you are doing a fabulous job of implementing a message that the WORLD needs. I was a teacher for 17 years and that was about 15 years ago. The children in my classes were mostly Middle School age and they weren't so hard to teach as the children I see making the news and my friends who are teachers describe. If I could do it, I would like to come back to the schools and teach the Random Acts of Kindness lessons (as a volunteer in the classroom of other teachers.) I think this new "me" generation is exactly as you described and that Social Media is a bad thing for some children. I am grieving for children who take their lives due to bullying. I'll start today's note with this message that I'm sending to you. Keep on keeping on! You are making a difference. I constantly see children (one out of 2 of mine who are grown men now) come back and thank you for instilling those words of encouragement to them when they were growing up. Thank you for writing and welcome to the blog! Hope to hear more from you!
