Random Acts of Kindness wrap up

I gave myself until the end of January to complete my 30 acts of kindness from when I turned 30 last January.  I’ve completed my list, but the kindness lives on.  I’ve signed up to do a few regular volunteer gigs, such as working at my local food pantry and helping out with Garbage to Garden‘s volunteer needs.

First 10 acts

Second set of 10

The remaining 10 acts are below:

21.  Donated jars of applesauce to Wayside Food Bank via Whole Foods Market during the holidays.

22.  Wrapped presents for Make-a-Wish foundation with my mom.

24.  My mother-in-law Cissie donated money toward layaway items at Renys in my name.

25.  Gave my parking space to a man that parked in front of me near a hydrant and gave him my parking slip with an hour’s worth of money left on it.

26.  Donated money towards a local child’s kidney transplant.

27.  Donated containers of coffee to Preble Street via a Yelp event at Flatbread.

28.  Wrote a thank you note to the person that was the reason for me moving to Maine for my internship and finding my husband and the life I now have.

29.  Volunteered at my local food pantry.

30. Donated bags of clothes to a family that recently lost their home to a fire.

That wraps up my 30 Random acts of kindness for the 31st year of my life.  This has been such a fun, easy, and rewarding experience. It takes so little effort to help others and a little really goes a long way.  I will continue to embrace these ideas in 2014 and in the rest of my life.

About Lauren Lear

Virginian to Mainiac, I moved to Maine for a photo internship with Aurora Photos and stayed because I met the man I would marry after winking at him on Match.com. My photo business, Lola Studios, is where I pursue my love of fantasy photography using makeup and props to create alternate realities for my clients. I started this blog a little over a year ago to share the wedding prep, diy, food, and family experiences that I had. To bring you up to speed, my husband Alex and I bought a home, got married, went on our honeymoon, hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas back to back (never again ;) ), I turned 30 (never again :( ), we went to London to celebrate our first married year, and we got a puppy, Walter! That’s about it! I hope you’ll join me to see what unfolds next. Enjoy!
