Feel Good Friday

It's another "Feel Good Friday" . . .and gosh darn-it, thank goodness it is Friday.
For the first time in quite a few weeks, I have NO PLANS for this weekend - no parties, no meetings, no obligations at ALL- just me and LOML* doing what WE want to do. What a relief!!
Yet before I slide down that slippery slope of slothfulness, let's pep ourselves up with some selfless and kind acts.

First, I want to share with you an article about how one minister's simple, but seemingly crazy idea helped his congregation at Federation Chruch in Chagrin Falls, Ohio realize their individual talents, self-worth, and selflessness along with fostering a stronger sense of community. It is such a heart-warming story, I almost cried, really.

After reading that story, aren't YOU ready to give back? Here's a couple of things you can do.
1. I've mentioned here before the Breast Cancer awareness site where you just have to click a button to help donate free mammograms. Well, just this week, I was directed to the Animal Rescue Site that fills bowls of pet food every time you click. I realized that the Animal site looked uncannily like the Breast Cancer one and then noticed the tabs at the top of the page. These tabs are available so you can navigate through them to click to prevent hunger, increase literacy, help child health, and save the rain forests along with helping detect breast cancer and fill animal food bowls. As I mentioned when the breast cancer one was brought up, you can set up to have daily reminders sent to you via e-mail. It's just a click, no catch, no cost to you - just pure feel-good-giving.

2. Today, I was directed to a site called What Kind of World Do You Want. The site is inspired by a Five for Fighting song. It's a donation site for several different charities, including autism (my personal choice). Click on the button to 'watch the videos', watch a video for the charity you support, and a donation is made to that charity. It's that easy. If you want more information on the hows and whys, the site has several pages you can navigate through to get a better understanding.

Well now, don't we all feel better? I do now that I've shared with all of you! Happy Friday!
