You would not believe what this simple act did for me. I wasn't down in the dumps by any means, but my spirits were lifted in ways that I would have never expected a four dollar purchase would be capable of. I was completely inspired, my faith in the overall kindness and goodness of mankind restored. The whole experience got me thinking. I wanted to pay it forward in a way that the message I received would not be forgotten. Kindness is what makes life so wonderful, but only if we spread it.
UP FOR GRABS
I'm giving away a hand-sculpted angel wing pendant, made by yours truly. One winner, chosen at random, will receive a pendant made from polymer clay, drenched in silver glitter, and sealed with a shiny varnish. These are comfortable, versatile, and meaningful. I made one for myself, and I wear it all the time.
Now THIS is where the fun begins! Let me tell you how you can win.
♥ Your entry will serve as a pledge to commit a random act of kindness. You can simply leave a comment that looks something like this: "Hi, Holly! I promise I will do something nice for someone in the near future."
♥ Your act of kindness doesn't have to involve a monetary investment. The rules are flexible: you can give some of your time, a helping hand, a sincere compliment, or anything else you can think of. It can be someone you know or someone you don't. If it makes somebody feel good, it counts.
I think it would be amazing if numerous acts of kindness were occurring all over the world! To gain additional entries after you've completed the first step, you can help get the word out by doing the following things (feel free to use the buttons at the end of this post to make these easier).
