Something nice..well I have all day on me

Well, I do volunteer work at a second hand store in town - the proceeds go to the local hospital. Today, a regular customer came in to get a bunch of stuff to ship off to his family, who lives in another country. He was jokingly hinting that he didn't have much cash to spend, so I only "charged" him what he could pay - which was maybe a 1/3 of the cost of the total purchases. When he came back wanting more stuff, I just threw the items in the bag without charging any more.

I usually always go out of my way for other people. Even if I don't know that person very much, I am known to always be a nice, generous person. Surprisingly, even if I don't know that person very much, I know a lot of people who come to me to talk even if we don't know each other.

Happy Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas!!!

What an awesome idea!!!--And I totally love your design!!!--Parajunkee rocks!!!

As for my good deed for the day...My sister and all her co-workers recently got transferred and everybody had to move like four hours away...My sis and I have each other, but I didn't want anyone to have to be alone for the holidays, and I know a lot of them can't go home because they have to work, or it's too far, so I had my sis invite everyone over to our place for Christmas so that no one would be alone.

Merry Christmas!!!

Last year we had a student who couldn't go on the class field trip due to money, but his parents wouldn't ask for help. I contacted them and paid for the student to go. He had the most fun - never really having been to a large zoo before :)

A good deed? Well, my mom and I donate most of our unused clothes every year at this one orphanage. That is least what we can do to help others in need.

Here is my good deed:
My mom just recently had surgery for cancer. She is having a hard time getting around right now, so I went to her house and cleaned it from top to bottom for her while she was at her doctors appointment. I figured after what she is going through, the cleaning is one thing she shouldn't have to worry about!

Darn, now I am hungry for cookies! LOL

What a generous giveaway! I love Parajunkee's Designs and she did a fantastic job on your blog.

I helped out with a family emergency last night. I guess it was a good deed but I wanted to be there. My 92 year-old grandmother lives at an assisted living facility and fell off the side of her bed at 1:00 a.m. and hit her head. The aide called an ambulance, my mother and me. My mom was leaving for the ER but I told her to stay home and I would go and call her with an update. I sat with Gram until 5:00 and then drove her back to her home. That was the 3rd time this year because of illness but when I go it helps out my Gram and my mom.

While waiting to be seated at a local restaurant the first week of December, my hubby and I browsed the Christmas tree filled with requests from needy kids. We found one that, in the space for toys, asked for a jacket and shoes, and the smallest toys of all--Hot Wheels cars. We felt so bad for this little one. We took his tag, bought a jacket/pants set, his hot wheels cars, a Hot Wheels service station, and some other toys. We took it back the next day, and the folks at the restaurant were so happy to see the bag. We had to actually tell them, "We're going to have lunch here again today!" so they'd seat us. While we were waiting for lunch, Hubby got a call and stepped outside. On his way back in, he found another tag he felt needed a wish fulfilled, so back to Walmart to buy another big gift bag full of toys! Things are still really tight for us this year since I'm still unemployed, but helping out just seemed to be the right thing to do. We dropped off the toys the next day. Hubby had a doctor's appointment a week later and was told his cancer was gone! So we went to the restaurant for lunch again to celebrate. This news just reinforced the need to help those out that needed more help than we've needed lately!
