Celebrating Random Acts of Kindness!
February 17th was National Day of Random Acts of Kindness. What better to celebrate than kindness?! So, I threw a kindness party and we had a blast. About 50 people gathered at my office on SE 26th near Clinton to celebrate. I’ve been wanting to show off the beautiful space and it is perfect for a party.
The guys from Mis Tacones served up some super delicious vegan tacos on tortillas fresh off the grill, posole and hand made tamales. Yummy!!! Honey Bee Bakehouse wedding cookies, both vanilla and purple yam, were sumptuous.
Guests decorated cotton drawstring bags with permanent fabric markers, set the ink with hair dryers and then filled them with an array of necessities. Guests got to leave with a kindness bag on hand to gift to someone in need. What a great feeling to be able to share socks, gloves, snacks and other items in a really cool bag!
There were some very talented artists!
What else did we do? Well, folks got to spin the Wheel of Kindness and meet Bits, a pot belly pig. Bits and his mom, Alyssa, were the guests of honor and gave folks the opportunity to get to know a rescued pig. So many people adopt cute baby piglets, only to relinquish them when they climb to 200 pounds +/-, leading to the need for foster and adoptive homes. Alyssa is a member of Northwest Miniature Pig Association (NWMPA), a group that offers support to those with pigs and to pigs in need. Bits was a wonderful guest and a real sweetie!
Let’s do it every year, the Sunday after Valentine’s Day!
