We have shared before, about projects our Social Media ‘friend’, Barb Marshall, has taken on… She shares her passion for Happy Mail on her RiteWhileUCan Blog.
She also has a project to spread Christmas Cheer… We just can’t say enough about the MakeItMerry Project– which works to send Holiday Cards to the homeless!
Here is her latest update:
One week today and it’s the big day! How is your list going? I made some Christmas cookies this weekend, got the gifts organized and hope to start a wee bit of wrapping tonight as I watch “Love Actually.”
But first, this afternoon, I will be sorting and reading (with the help of friends) some of the hundreds of Christmas cards for one of the homeless shelters as MakeItMerry makes a delivery tomorrow.
Today is #PinkShirtDay – A reminder to speak out about bullying… both online and in real life.
We have all seen news stories go viral… and many of them cause feelings of anger, fear or dismay… which make them hard NOT to react to.
We use this day as a reminder to ourselves, to be mindful and respectful, and not just “pile on”, when an individual or company seems to cross a line. I think all of us have caught ourselves trying to say something, that can be misconstrued or mis-interpreted. Especially on Social Media, where brevity and conciseness are often dictated.
The shirt really says it all: “Kindness is one size fits all“.
