Day 153: Catching Kindness
My wife has been my #1 supporter of my random acts since Day 1. She has helped me plan, helped me see the random acts through, and been a cheerleader for me at times. Recently, she came up with an idea to get her students involved in 366 Random Acts in an effort to get them to spread kindness and to treat others with respect. So we sat down and were throwing out all kinds of ideas as to what we could do to get the children involved. My wife came up with the idea for a contest called Catching Kindness. Each student would make their own baseball mitt and each time they performed a random act of kindness, they would get a tally (ball) in the mitt. For each tally that the students received, they would get a raffle ticket entered into the jar. From what I hear, there are a ton of entries into the contest. So today, for OUR random act of kindness, my wife is conducting the raffle and I will deliver the prize at the end of the day. The students don't know it yet, but the winner is going to have their choice of going to either a White Sox or Cubs game as the prize to keep with the baseball theme (hopefully the winner is wise and chooses the Sox).
