Last year, my mom decided she would pack gift bags to distribute to the homeless. She filled 50 sandwich bags with travel-sized toiletries, a toothbrush and a pair of socks.
This year, she has put together 100 bags so far to distribute during the Christmas holidays.
She also started a toy drive at her office and collected nearly 3 boxes of toys which we delivered to a local family shelter.
My mom is not alone in her RAOK (Random Acts of Kindness) as we hear stories of the kindness of others each and every day. Whether it's collecting socks and blankets to hand out to the homeless or serving meals at the local soup kitchen, if you see a need in your community, step up and serve.
Instead of waiting for others to step up... be the change you wish to see in the world. That familiar Ghandi quote is the inspiration behind Britt Nicole's song "Be the Change".
I've been staring at the world, waiting I've been looking for a change lately All the trouble and all the pain we're facing. Someone's gotta be the hope and someone's gotta be the love
The latest release from Capitol Music Group artist, Britt Nicole, is a full of faith 14-track mix of jams sure to be a great addition to your music collection. The CD is currently #1 in Australia and has been for the last 6 weeks! Way to Go Britt!!!
Another one of my favorite tracks is "Better". Better is a testament to the loneliness many teens and tweens face at school amidst a classroom full of other students. Britt's vocal style reminds me of a couple of other more contemporary artists and her reflective, mature and thoughtful lyrics shine light on the complexities of relationships with self and others. The CD is available at music stores nationwide including Target, Amazon, ChristianBook, Walmart and others.
Britt Nicole's Deluxe edition is a great CD and an even greater reminder of the power of one. This Christmas, do something. If Christmas isn't your thing, do something anyway to show your fellow mankind a little love.
Many thanks to Capitol Music Group for partnering with us during this 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways to share Britt Nicole's Deluxe Edition CD with on lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader.
