Wedding Anniversary Random Acts of Kindness

Event Details

Event Description

Widow's Voice: 8

On what would have been my 26th wedding anniversary, I will spend the day performing 26 random acts of kindness in honor of my husband and the life we shared together.

This is not my idea -- I was inspired by Taryn Davis' post "8" on the Widow's Voice blog (link above).  I mentioned this in another forum here, and three others said they were inspired to do this as well.

With 4 of us, that is 102 random acts of kindness.  And that is wonderful!

If you are inspired to join us, please RSVP here and let us know how many RAOKs you plan to perform in honor of your loved one.  I'm leaving this event up all year -- the grand total could be simply amazing!

Thanks Eliana for sharing Taryn's post. My anniversary is today Saturday April 5th. We were married twenty five years. I will do an act of kindness each day. I think I will do this on the anniversary of his death also. What a wonderful way to keep the joy and love alive in my heart by giving someone else a little joy.

Our 24th anniversary would have been March 24th.  I try to do at least one act of kindness per day, but I will really kick it up next Monday !!
