An Epidemic of Kindness

On this 1st day of the New Year, I was watching the World Magician Awards and saw some amazing acts. Of course, like everyone else, I was waiting to see Pamela Anderson, the Magician’s Assistant of the Year. While I waited, they presented the Blackstone Award to Larry & Frances Jones for their life work of Feed the Children. In 2007 they provided and shipped 129 million pounds of food and other essentials to children and families in all 50 states and in 43 foreign countries, supplementing more than 730,000 meals a day worldwide. This puts my charity work to shame, what about yours?

So, live this year like you are filthy stinking rich, and do what rich people do. Help the less fortunate- donate to Feed the Children. After all, if you have a place to live and food to eat, you are already wealthier than most of the world’s population. Will you really miss that $8 that will feed a child for a month? Or the $55 that will de-worm 500 children? Think- you can really make an impressive impact with 1 kind deed. You can even do it in honor of someone and send them an e-card notifying them. You can start an epidemic of kindness that will hopefully infect the world.
