Random Acts of Kindness
As a kid, I was the one who went door to door in my neighborhood with my orange box, collecting funds for Unicef. Later, I was the kid who was five or six that held a carnival for Jerry's Kids (afflicted with Muscular Dystrophy) and tried to involve my entire community. As a teenager, when I got confirmed in my church, I spent a year working in an assisted living facility directly across from my house, working as an activities director.It was the hardest year of my life, but also the most rewarding
, as I clearly
knew that I loved helping people. It wasn't my life mission, but it was a close second.
As a newcomer on G+, I created a page called +Helping Others
, a page that addresses and increases awareness of causes around the world. Full circle, people. Full circle. It's a huge part of who I am - and what I've always tried to do: to give my heart and soul towards making a better life for someone other than myself.
I love this story, and while Blaine and I won't be having kids, in my heart of hearts, it's something I always wanted. I would have made a damn good dad - and I would have been immensely proud of Xander and his sister! #givingback #helpingothers #communityservice #randomactsofkindness http://ticklestogiggles.blogspot.com/2010/05/my-birthday-was-awesome.html
