One of my favourite things to do is to try to make people smile. For a while now I have been sending cards out to people as a small attempt to make them smile, usually these have messages from all of their friends with uplifting words in. Feeling cared about and loved is one of the most amazing feelings in the world. Realising that some of my friends didnt feel this feeling, I wanted to do something to change that, thats where the cards came from! I have done maybe 10+ of these so far, I'd love to continue to do these for as long as I can! I need more stamps though.
Another way I have been able to make someone smile is through my projects at Christmas. Last Christmas I was able to raise some money for a friend of mine, who otherwise maybe wouldnt have had any Christmas presents. So, because of the money I raised, I was able to buy and send her some gifts and give her the remaining money which was the best feeling!
This year I am doing the same for someone else I am friends with, which is so exciting. Already I have raised quite a considerable amount of money, but I would love to get some more so I can buy her a few gifts that she maybe wouldnt treat herself to. Everyone is deserving of a good Christmas and happiness. And no, gifts dont equate to happiness but the kindness behind the gifts makes you feel loved and cared for. So, hopefully this project goes well!
This is just a short post for today but I hope it inspires you to do something kind for someone else! You dont have to buy things to be kind! A simple letter could put a smile on someones face. Be kind.
