A while ago I took part in the random act of kindness challenge to buy a random gift for the first 5 people to respond wanting a gift, obviously as I didn’t really advertise it well enough and make sure people saw it at a time when facebook was really playing up at posting things and visibility I instead chose to purchase 5 gifts for the person who responded.

I started off with a drawing of that person as I knew she was a crafty person and enjoyed hand crafted things so I figured a drawing would be a good gift, of course I’m not the worlds greatest drawer and I felt like this was a little bit of a cop out so continued my search for further gifts, from there I found the doctor who badges and stickers, again a pretty cheap thing so it needed more to go with it.

Another outing I found a crafting book, containing a style she wouldn’t normally work in I figured it would be a good gift as it would be something a little different to try and perhaps a fun gift, finally I found a little dress and bangle to go with it to round out the gifts to 5 and make a package worth sending through the post, all of which I am sure did the job of bringing a smile to her face!

I would encourage you to take part in the challenge and post for the first 5 respondents to get a random act of kindness gift from you at some point in the coming year to bring a smile to their face, especially with the way the world is at present and show that kindness still exists in the world, of course the requirement is they post a similar challenge for their first 5 respondents in order to participate (and send a gift back to you if they wish) spread some kindness and love and show people still care.

And of course for everyone else there’s always internet hugs *hugs*
