Heartfelt Acts

Welcome to the 2013 Heartfelt Acts with Emmy & Janette!  So glad you are here because that means you are interested in learning how you can make a difference in the world!  Emmy and I brainstormed for something we could both do and share together that would make an impact from California to Texas and everywhere in-between and surrounding.  Our goal is to complete 1 or more Heartfelt Acts per month and share our experiences in hopes that it spreads to your heart to give as well.  We have created a button that you can use in a post if you decide to join us and a schedule to get you going.  There are so many ideas of how you can give that we encourage you to attempt more than what is listed here and share.  Hearing how you impact another persons life is so inspiring.  I hope together we can help change lives, ours especially by giving.

1.  Clean out your closets/kids rooms/etc. and donate to a shelter or worthy cause.
2.  Find a cause in your community to serve for a day or a few hours.  If you have children, take them so they can experience giving as well. 

1.  Bring Flowers to someone
2.  Tell your Child/spouse that you love them every single day for the month.  You can change it up daily to fit your family.

1.  Thank you police or fire department- take them a baked item.
2.  Leave 5 random notes of love or affirmation in different public places.

1.  Forgive Someone.
2.  Send a care package (ex.  military, friend or family member in college, for any friend just because).

1.  Host a cookie exchange.  Examples of how to do this can be found HERE & HERE.
2.  Write a letter to a family member telling them why you love them. (Great for Mother’s Day!)

1.  Start a piggy bank for a cause- maybe even have kids help by doing extra jobs around house/neighborhood to earn money.
2.  Give Affirmation: Offer encouragement freely to your friends, co-workers, and family.  You can always find something positive to say in any situation!

1.  Leave a sweet message or gift to Thank your mail carrier.
2.  Gather up some books that can be donated to a library or Goodwill/Salvation Army.

1.  Pay it forward in a drive thru; you can pay for 1 or 2 cars back. If you have a plan to do this, you could even write a little Pay it Forward note to wish them a great day.
2.  Cook a meal or a dessert for someone.

1.  Buy some Cat and Dog treats that can be donated to a local Animal Shelter.
2.  Leave a generous tip to a server.

1.  Buy a gift card with a value of your choice and choose a random person to give it to.
2.  Send a letter to a friend to let them know you were thinking about them.

1.  Organize a Teddy Bear Drive, Coat Drive or Shoe Drive for a local shelter. 
2.  Make a list of appreciation: Make a list for your spouse or significant other highlighting all of the different reasons you appreciate them. (this would be great for a Thanksgiving dinner to share appreciation around the table).

1.  Adopt an Angel (child or senior) to be their Christmas Angel to shower them with gifts from their want/need list.
2.  Bring a treat to a friend, work, church or your favorite Dr’s Office ‘just because’ or to Thank them.

These are ideas Emmy and I have found by researching and googling ideas.  Some places that inspired us with these ideas can be found HERE & HERE.  Please spread the word and come back and tell us about your Heartfelt Acts.
