What Can You Do?

No, really.

What can you do?

What can you do over the next week to give back, to celebrate the season of Thanksgiving, and pay the rent we owe for living here on this precious planet?

Thanksgiving is just 9 days away and I'm challenging myself to be the most thankful and generous version of myself over the next 9 days.

I started brainstorming ideas of small ways I could give back, say thank you, and really focus on  others. 

I thought I'd share a few of my ideas to make someone else's day better - maybe they'll inspire you to do the same. 
Pay It Forward

::Buy the person behind me coffee:: winter
::Call Kuka (my grandmother)::

::Send someone a true thank you note - not for anything tangible they've given you, but for everything else::

::Take a donation to Good Will::
::Contribute to a charity::
If you are looking for a great charity, the JEH Foundation is very near and dear to my heart. It's namesake is my Godmother's brother, and the foundation is set up to help families affected by pancreatic cancer afford high school and college tuition. Last year all of the proceeds were donated to a college fund for my cousins Riley and Gia who lost their mom, my Aunt Peggy to pancreatic cancer.

::Leave a note & some candy in my mailbox for our mailman to just simply say Thanks ::thank you for clients

I really do think little things like this can make a very big impact on someone's day and I'm challenging to accomplish every one of these items on my list before Thanksgiving.


indeed, it does.
