After all the terrible recent tragedies that have happened and are happening, this world needs as much kindness as it can get. During 2015 La Verne United Methodist Church is using the theme of “Acts of Random Kindness”. I’m participating in an “Acts of Random Kindness” (ARK) Initiative: The first twelve (12)(Non-repetitive from FB or double posted here) people that comment on this status with “I’m in” will receive a surprise from me at some point this next year (2015), anything – a book, a ticket, something home-grown, homemade, a postcard, any surprise! There will be no warning and it will happen when the mood comes over me and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy. I will also do something kind for some unsuspecting person in your name, and with something that reminds me of you. These twelve people must make the same offer on their Facebook status. Once my first twelve have commented “I’m in” I will forward this message to you privately, so that you can copy and paste it, and put it on your status (don’t share it), so that we can form a web of connection and of kindness.
Remember the act is kindness so only respond if you truly will keep this going and fulfill your end of the bargain. Even if you aren’t one of the 12 it doesn’t mean you can’t take this up for yourself.
Just really make sure you know or get to know the 12 people so you can do something to help them. And I chose twelve for twelve months, as we will be doing this project as part of our focus of Acts of Random Kindness (ARK) at La Verne United Methodist Church for 2015.
