Hello Everyone, Mary Christmas & Happy New Year
(L to R: Richard, Sue, Matthew, Joan, Justin & Mike)
I have sent a donation to The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation in memory of my Mom. That is the reason I am promoting the cause, “Alzheimer’s Awareness & Prevention.” More money will get more research done the more trials they do will hopefully one day find a cure.
According to the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation (RAK), performing just one act of kindness per day can reduce stress and anxiety – for you and the person you help. Kindness doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are 10 easy ways to start down a kinder path.
- Replace one complaint with a compliment each day.
- Pay for the person behind you in the drive-through.
- Use a meal-donation service to give a friend a week off from kitchen duty.
- Send a nice e-mail or letter.
- Impressed with someone’s work? Let his or her manager know.
- Donate clean, worn towels and blankets to a local animal shelter.
- Give up a primo parking spot in a crowded lot.
- Smile – it’s contagious!
- Leave your server or barista a generous tip.
- Tuck an encouraging note into a random book at the library.

You don’t need money, just a little time to give mental support and be kind to all. Check on the elderly, bring their Newspaper to their door in bad weather, say hello to your neighbors when you see them, wish them happy holidays and birthdays etc. Call your parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles; talk to them to make sure they are not lonely, thank the soldiers when you see them for keeping us safe; thank priests, police officers, teachers, postal workers, newspaper persons, trash collectors for their services. Write notes to a lonely and unknown person and make his or her day. These acts of kindness have a trickle-down effect.
