#33ActsofLove Round Up

My birthday came and went. I’m one year older, a little bit wiser, a little bit sillier but so well loved and was hopefully able to spread some love around yesterday that made the world just a little happier and more kind.
33 Acts of Love

Here is all the acts that I was able to do and were done as bday gifts!

1. I handed out 10 thank you cards to coworkers before they came into the office.

3. I bought the lady behind me at Balzac’s her tea this morning. She asked my why, so I told her and asked her to pass along the love later in the day. She had such a wide smile spread across her face it was lovely!

4. I handed out some Kobo gift cards to people reading at lunch and on the subway yesterday on my way home. I’m a bit a nerd about it I wait until the subway door is almost open. I tap the person who’s reading and say “I work for Kobo and I wanted to say thank you for reading! Here’s a gift card!” and then I run off the subway. Doing kind acts makes me a bit shy but hey continuously pushing those comfort zones!

5. I bought yellow Gerber Daisies and handed them out to ladies in my work neighbourhood. I gave one to a little girl and she exclaim “wow” with so much wonder it made my heart leap!

6. I roped two coworkers into walking down to hand out water bottles to cops at the Pan Am street blockade near Exhibition Place. The cop goes “why are you doing this?” When I responded “because it’s my birthday” he exclaimed “there really are nice people in the world”

9. My favourite social media story from this week came on Tuesday when I contacted the Canadian Blood Services and asked if I could donate. Unfortunately because there is no known cause for MS they cannot accept mine. So I tweeted asking someone to donate on my behalf and within a minute Laura in Calgary had made an appointment for yesterday. She made me happy cry so hard.
