Take What You Need

My Journalfest buddy Carrie Todd told me about the Kindness Mission that Kelly Rae Roberts has started.  You can read about Kelly's idea here and even download a PDF of her sign if you don't want to make your own.  Kelly also has a link to the original sign that inspired her to do this.  What an awesome idea, there should be one on every telephone pole everywhere, don't you think?!

What a great and simple idea.  I thought we should take it one step farther.  Sure, we can post them wherever we'd like (I'm thinking we need one in the laundry room of my building and maybe on that bulletin board at the grocery store, in the bathroom at the office...) but I also think it might be nice to have a copy of my own hanging on the fridge.  Heaven knows we all have days when we could use a little extra hope or courage or a bit of tenderness.

Okay people, get out there and pass it on!

This looks like a great idea. I will have to further examine. it. Have you posted any signs yet? Maybe I will in my school. My principal would probably have a cow or two.

Thank you for this idea. I posted this at my office and will also put it in my fridge as a personal reminder. I don´t know you yet i thank you for this random act of kindness towards me.
