Day 301: Pulled A Truck & Bought Lunch For Friends
Today, there are two random acts for the price of one. A kindness combo, if you will. What better place to start out a combo than at a place known for them; McDonald's headquarters. While the fast food addict in me thinks of Big Macs, Chicken McNuggets, and fries when McDonald's is brought up, the kindness part of me thinks about Ronald McDonald House. In February, I met (via email) a woman named Mardelle who works for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana. Mardelle and I have been in touch on and off for the past few months, and recently she asked if I would be interested in joining her at one of their upcoming charity events, Pulling For The House. Pulling For The House is a unique fundraiser where teams of 12 compete to pull a semi-truck (yes, a semi-truck) faster than all the other teams. With a bad back, I wasn't too sure how much I could add to the team, but any chance to help a cause like Ronald McDonald House, I am taking. So today, for my random act of kindness, I pulled a truck to help raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities. I hope I don't throw my back out because...
America's Dog who helped me pass out hot dogs during my appearance on The Steve Harvey Show. He said he would help me put together an order large enough to satiate the hungers of 25+ grown men. So today, for the second half of my random act of kindness two-fer, I bought lunch for my friends. Mu Mu Mu, Mu Alpha Nu.
