Dose of Happy – Make This World Mo Betta'

03 Dec

Over at Band Back Together we’re feeling like we want to junk punch the next person who asks us if we have a case of the Mondays.  So instead of doing the time in the resulting anger management program, we decided to take Monday back.  So we’re linking up our Dose of Happy posts and bringing the awesome back to Mondays.

 

 

I pinned this from the Bloggess because she makes me feel just like all the people in this pin do, like my internet bff does, like the Band does, cheap viagra uk like the Wheaton’s do, likeEllen does.

The Bloggess and James Garfield (obvi) are going for the trifecta of Christmas miracles in order to get the pig (James Garfield, obvs) qualified for sainthood.  Also to make people smile and feel loved even when in the middle of a horrendous catastrophe.  I’ve been lucky enough to be in on this experience from the beginning, but I want to share the warm fuzzy high that comes with joining together to make the world brighter with everyone.

Project Night Night is an awesome program that distributes a night night bag with book, blanket and stuffed animal to homeless kids all over the US.  Imagine how scary it feels to be a kid without a home, without any possessions to call your own.  It costs only $20 for one complete package or you can put them together yourself (see guidelines here).  This year, the Bloggess is trying to reach a goal of 1,000 packages for kids affected by Superstorm Sandy.  She kicked off the awesome with a donation of 25 packages.  I’m donating one this year because my pockets be smaller right now, but my mom’s group has a plan to work on a larger local donation after the holidays.

I know what the economy is like firsthand, y’all.  I totally get not being in a position to give right now.  But if you can’t give, can you spread the word?  Tweet that shit, Pin it, FB it, Stumble Upon it, Reddit it.  Every little bit helps.  It all matters.  Come on y’all, let’s all get high together.

    Damn you girl. You made me cry. What a beautiful post. And it inspires me to do something kind for someone else. Just because I can.

      No, just because that’s who you are.

    OK, I’m a little choked up right now. Especially the bicyclists giving water to the Koala. I must be hormonal. #thisiswhyiloveyou

      I’m pretty sure I’m always hormonal when it comes to kindnesses being handed out freely.

    My kids’ school is doing this too! I’m going shopping for the stuff tomorrow (thanks for the gift card, MIL) and I’m stupid excited.

      That’s awesome! It must be so overwhelming to be so near by all that devastation. I love you for helping them out.

    I never get tired of this shit. And that high that you get when you do some secret ninja kindness stuff is unlike any other.

      We need to get the kids hooked on this shit. Addicted to being kind. That is a revolutionary thought, right there.
