Just because YOU can

Do something nice for somebody today, it makes you both feel so good.

Just a little thought to provoke some humanitarian action.  It doesn’t have to be a big thing.

If you take up the challenge please comment and let me know what you did.  Or if somebody does something nice for you today let me know that also.

I will make up a post of all the feedback later in the week.

2 Days later

I can’t believe I have had zero people taking up this challenge so far.

Have you not given a smile, spoken a kind word, donated to a charity, done a good deed, cheered somebody up, listened to somebodies pain or anything else.

I am disappointed, I thought I would have lots of my good friends on here responding to this call to do something nice for somebody.

There is still plenty of time, please let me know.

  1. Last night, someone I know called me in dire need of a hot bath. Despite me feeling physically and mentally exhausted and wanting an early night, I welcomed them in. They were so grateful (and also a lot cleaner!)

    • Thank you Nicola,
      A small thing to you could be a very big thing to the person in need. Thank you for putting yourself out for somebody else, I am sure they appreciated it. 🙂

  2. I donated five pounds to Children in Need today. Not a lot, I know,, but it was all I can afford at the moment as I am on benefit. Anyway, if everyone donated five pounds it would soon mount up to a lot of money.

    • Thank you Kevin for your reply. Good for you, sir, you have done what you can in difficult circumstances yourself. There are people who don’t help others when it is quite easily within their means to do so. I am sure your donation will be used wisely along with all the others that will be pledged this year.

  3. Yesterday, I helped our elderly Spanish neighbours clear up some of the damage that had been caused to their property by the terrible storm we have had.

  4. I assisted an old man in a wheelchair; helped him get through the doors of the butchers, and another elderly man looking for a certain type of butter. I smile at people everyday as I always think a smile goes a ‘long’ way. Remember to tell loved ones, children, parents etc how much you appreciate and love them too, every day, for we never know what is around the corner. It costs nothing to be nice and it is good to give for in giving, we are opening ourselves up to receiving. 🙂 x Have a nice day ❤

    • What a beautiful comment Elaine, this totally explains the sentiment behind my post. You are the type of person I love to pass in the street, always ready with a smile, a friendly greeting or a helping hand. If everybody was this willing to help each other the world would run a lot smoother. Keep smiling:)

  5. I do my best, but its tough to let my “inner humaintarian” through. But you’ve inspired me to try harder.

    • With your natural humour I am sure you can do something unexpectedly nice today. You seem to be a genuinely nice bloke anyway. Let me know what you manage to do. Good luck in finding your humanitarian side.
