365 Acts of Kindness- Week 1


Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a beautiful day! I am pleased to announce, that we're bringing back our 365 Acts of Kindness Challenge for 2015, encouraging everyone to do one nice thing for someone else every day, for the next year. It doesn't have to be random- you can certainly be kind to someone you know, or a complete stranger. The idea is to pass love around- help someone else out, and inspire them to do the same. Sometimes, we have to change to be the change we want to see in this world.



Our Acts of Kindess from Last Week...

Last week, while on vacation with my family, I ran into a young mother and her baby in the medicine aisle in a superstore. I was looking for medicine, myself, and noticed the woman hurriedly looking through the infant medicines, for her son, who was sick and had a fever. She seemed flustered and confused as to which medicine to select, and kept picking things up, and putting them back. I remembered what it felt like to be a new mom, and to be unsure of what to give my baby when it came to anything over the counter. I spotted a natural medicine that we had great luck with, and gently pointed it out to her. She was so grateful that I stopped what I was doing to help her, and reassure her. -Ondria


We've been inspired by our friends over at Free Tastes Good, who are sharing weekly ideas on how we can bless others. Every Sunday, a member of the MBP team will share how they were blessed by someone or how they were able to bless someone else during the previous week. We want to encourage our community to offer acts of kindess to others, and we have a few ideas to get you started.
