Allow me to interrupt the regularly scheduled programming to tell you about something exciting that is happening right here in our very own Interwebs! We can get back to my existential dribble and tales of rock and roll in moment. But first, you should take a look at this:
The world's very first random acts of kindness contest kicks off today! It's called "The Big Give" (TBG for short). You can check it out here. The idea is to promote kindness and generosity worldwide by turning it into a friendly competition of sorts. Sounds kinda fun, right? :)
The rules are simple: Using $20 or less, spend the month of July plotting, executing, and documenting an incredible random act of kindness for someone. Turn in your results at the end of the month. A panel of four judges will review all the entries and choose the winners.
If you look at the judging panel on the site, you may notice that I am one of the judges. I am really excited to see what kind of things people come up with and want to encourage everyone reading this to consider taking part in this. There is a registration page on the site. Go register now! :) Join this crazy worldwide movement!
Also, you can "like" The Big Give on facebook here. And then you can spam all of your friends! And they can spam their friends! And so on and so forth, until the entire universe knows about it and is actively engaged in being nice for the hell of it. Yay!
That's all for now, amigos. Live long and prosper.
