Let's start this week off right, shall we? There's sure to be plenty of news this week — some good, some bad, and some downright ugly. So for today, I'd like to focus on the good stuff — the stories that will keep a smile on your face all week long.
That's the idea behind Random Acts of Happiness, a new campaign that offers folks a chance to win $10,000 (or $20,000 for groups) who share their random stories of kindness and generosity. From the website:
"Got a smile on your face? Tell us why. Plan to help someone in need? We want to hear about it!"
You can share any story that makes you happy, and if it makes others happy, too, you'll be in the running for the $10,000 top prize. What's more, for every vote the sites receives, Random Acts of Happiness (with the help of sponsor Edible Arrangements,) will donate $1 to Big Brothers Big Sisters, an organization committed to nurturing children and strengthening communities.
So go ahead and browse the site to get your week off to a happy start. And while you're there, spread the joy by sharing your own story of happiness.
