Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.

Creative fun in the palm of your hand.

Well, the year is getting closer to the end but that doesn't mean that the acts of kindness have to stop. As the past few months have changed for me, in more ways than one, and the holidays are approaching, I've learned that random acts of kindness are not simply a nicety we can do or afford, but that they are needed.

Without telling you that you should run a fun auction, contest, or a raffle, or another activity that can create fun on the site, because that goes without saying, I think we should also focus on the little things. Don't they matter the most anyway? If you can, if you feel inclined to, do something nice for someone you know, or maybe don't know.

If you click on the shop link on the left side and go to the WdC Shop, a new page will open for you. You can shop for items for yourself, which you can also add to your personal wish list, or... You can click on All Wish Lists and check out the wishes from others. I've done it a few times in the past as well as received gifts from people at random and it sure brightens up ones day, I'll tell you.

Think about it! It doesn't have to be anything large and if the shipping is high, you can always send out something smaller like a C-Note for the holidays, a note saying you're thinking of them or just to wish them happy holidays. Not everyone is fortunate enough to celebrate them with family.

'Til next time!
