Random Act of Kindness: November

Page

Aloha!
As you know I am due to do another random act of kindness for November. Each month I come up with a new big random act of kindness and then blog about it. My last one got people hunting for me on the local radio station and on Facebook, but I like to stay anonymous because I don’t want anything in return, I just like to think of people having big smiles on their faces when they receive my handmade gifts and letters. The most awesome part was that the whole community started talking about what random act of kindness they would do! It was really crazy being an unknown celebrity for a while!

This month I chose to sprinkle some kind energy towards 3 of the emergency services: Police, Ambulance and the CFA (Fire Fighters). I am focusing on the emergency services because I believe that people don’t always appreciate how lucky we are to have these incredible people looking out for us everyday. They are working dangerous jobs and without them we wouldn’t be as safe as we are today.
This time I made 31 pencil toppers! It took me 1 month to sew, decorate, glue, and name each of the them.IMG_9315

I sewed 1 unique wish into each topper by hoping with all my heart and using heartfelt words, so that whoever holds one will have a special feeling or experience happen to them (e.g: optimism/courage/persistence/love/feeling determined/attracting genuine compliments/receive a free coffee etc).IMG_9319[1]IMG_9316

I also included 1 scratchie per package. I wrote in each letter that if they win the $10,000 that they have to throw a massive party to celebrate how awesome they are (You can read my letter at the end of this post). I have my fingers crossed that all of them win!

The gifts were lots of fun to make and the great part was that I could be as creative as I wanted! I made bunnies, circles, squares and hearts in lots of different colours.IMG_9317

I got to select which group each pencil topper went into too. It was like creating families out of pencils! IMG_9318[1]

At the end I wrapped them up and decorated the packages with stickers.

Then we posted them and in a couple of days the emergency services will receive this random act of kindnesses. It is very exciting! This is always my favourite part…when the gifts get sent off to those that need or deserve them.IMG_9322

It makes my heart feel really full when I think about how much happiness is getting spread around the world.
I hope that people will be inspired to do a small random act of kindness today and make someone feel really happy!

Have a happy day!
FZ out!! 🙂
