So this time last week it occured to me that sometimes the world really sucks. And that makes me mad. What to do, what to do...? I put on my big girl panties and decided to start something new: Seven Days of GOOD with the intention of making a positive impact in the world and inspiring others to do the same. So here's the breakdown:
Saturday: Volunteer at Downtown Rescue Mission, begin knitting scarves for the needy
Sunday: Donate groceries to food pantry, updated info with National Bone Marrow Registry
Monday: Joined Red Cross and VolunteerMatch, found volunteer opportunities for next week, visit dentist (hey, charity begins at home, right?)
Tuesday: Help C.O.L.E.S. Foundation- http://www.colesfoundation.com/ , donate to local K-9 unit that does a drug prevention program in the elementary schools
Wednesday: Deliver truckload to recycling center, adopt displaced puppy
Thursday: Arrange blood drive for church
Friday: Donate blood, deliver truckload of donations to Salvation Army, drop off the 8 scarves I've managed to knit for the needy
Saturday: Donate 41,515 frequent flyer miles to "Be the Match" foundation, a division of the National Bone Marrow Registry, give 3 ducks and medical care to a family through World Vision
Yes, I'm aware that this is, in fact, eight days. But I was cruising right along so I thought, what the heck. The real miracle of the whole thing is that we managed to keep with our homeschool schedule AND the boys accompanied me on nearly everything. They want to volunteer at the local no-kill animal shelter next week!
What do you plan on for your 7 Days of GOOD? I'd love to hear about it!
