The world could stand for a little more kindness and thoughtfulness. Whenever I hear about the acts of kindness that others do, be it organizing a food bank drive, or just buying a sandwich for a homeless person, I always feel so inspired to do something good myself. We all have the power to make someone's life better and that's the idea behind the Pay It Forward contest running right now at Burnaby's Metropolis at Metrotown.
All month, Metropolis at Metrotown has been asking people to tell them their ideas for a random act of kindness if they were given just $10. There have been tons of amazing ideas so far and each entry results in a $1 donation by Metropolis to the CKNW Orphan's Fund, benefiting children with physical, mental and social challenges in BC. Besides doing a good deed, everyone who enters also gets entered into a draw for $1000!! The contest ends this month, so you still have time to enter!
So what can you do with $10? Metropolis at Metrotown posed this very question to me recently and here is how I spread a little joy to strangers and the people I love:
|Treating Mr. Artist and his mom to lunch!|
|Buying some new books for my little nephew|
|Donating canned goods to a local food bank|
|Giving someone on the street without an umbrella some shelter|
|Donating makeup to a women's organization, like Beauty Night|
Now I want to know how YOU would pay it forward!
Tell me your idea for a random act of kindness (and I won't limit you to having to use $10 or any dollars) and you could win a $50 gift card to Metropolis at Metrotown! Don't forget to enter their contest as well!
