I was challenged by Cents of Style and Jane.com to take part in their #bethegood campaign. What an awesome opportunity to do something, big or small, for another person.
Yesterday, while driving to the grocery store, I noticed an elderly lady walking slowly down the street in the pouring rain. She didn't have an umbrella and she was soaking wet. I remembered that I had an old rain coat sitting in the back of my car along with an umbrella. I pulled up next to the lady, asked her if she was okay, and offered her my rain coat and umbrella. She hesitated at first but eventually took it, smiled, and thanked me. Looking at her thankful smile made me realize that even a simple, yet spontaneous act of kindness can go a long way. When you look, you'll find opportunities to perform acts of kindness. When you take those opportunities to perform those kind acts, you'll feel great.
I now challenge you to take part in this movement and spread the goodness throughout! Seek out an opportunity to do something good every day. Hold open a door, donate to your favorite charity, or simply smile at a stranger.
Here are the details:
1. Choose a good deed. Could be as simple as paying for the coffee after yours.
2. Share your goods. Pick your favorite social channel (Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Twitter, etc.), but first, make sure to take a selfie (or something appropriate to your story), and share your story, big or small. Be sure to use these hashtags to help this campaign spread: #BeTheGood #JaneCares and #CentsofStyle. You’ll see your story featured at http://Jane.com/bethegood
3. Tag 1-5 of your friends to do the same within a 24 hr period.
4. Look stylish while doing it! Jane.com and Cents of Style are selling some super cute #BeTheGood t-shirts on Jane.com. All profits made will be donated to Girls Inc. an organization that inspires girls to be strong, smart and bold.
