Day 337: Help college student with math

I know what some of you are thinking. Help someone with math? Danielle? haha.

I sort of did. I went and picked up the college student I have been mentoring periodically. He needed help with putting together his final essays and work on some math. I took one look at the math problems....mind.blown. I had to post on my facebook page to see out the help from many of my math guru friends! But we got it squared away.

He got his essays figured out (I put together questions for him and then laid out how an essay should look like)

When I dropped him off, he asked if he could give me a hug and thanked me for my help. Sometimes all someone needs is someone to have another persons back. A cheerleader saying you can do it.

(I think my blog is caught up! Hath no fear, acts of kindness occur daily! It can be a bit of a struggle getting this posted because Madi,my adorable cute little daughter likes to stay up during the time I usually posted this. :))

Day 335: A friend is sick - here I come!

My friend Paul shared that he wasn't feeling well. He had went into work and came home from a head cold that's been going around.

I brought him a bag with ramen noodle soup, candy (because seriously, it chocolate makes a cold go away - you heard it from me first!) and emergen-c (this stuff is awesome).

Paul, hope you feel better bud!!!

Day 334: Two boys that follow this blog - become recipients

Towards the beginning of the year, I had a friend post on my facebook telling me that her sons follow this act of kindness blog. It made me realize the magnitude of doing the acts of kindness and that even young people would follow. It inspired me. Motivated me.

Little did they know that they would become recipients of this new years resolution towards the end of the year!

I put together a box of goodies with a remote controlled helicopter. The note said "Dream Big, Aim high"

They should get it on Monday, Dec 3rd!!!

Day 333: Start a cause

My idea was generated from seeing D's tiara yesterday morning. I started wearing it. I instantly felt empowered, worthy and strong. I'd like to start sending tiaras (and a note) to women experiencing heartache and obstacles. Starting off with those I know experiencing something or just needs a pick me up or just to let them know I care. I'd then like to build a website to inspire and motivate women to wear their tiaras with self talk - understand and believe in their worth, letting them know they are not alone.

As a result, I hope to start an organization that facilitates opportunities for speakers and motivational perspectives to enlighten and open women up to their ultimate goals and desires.

This would help:
-single mothers
-women experiencing divorce
-domestic violence
-mid-life crisis's
-teen girls (bullied, building confidence, etc)
- all women and girls that need a lift up :)

Basically, a cause showing that other women are fighting for other women.

I posted this on my facebook. There's now over 50 people involved and behind this cause. I will post a picture of the logo but I think the final name for this will be "Tiara's with love"!!!!

Day 332: Contribute towards a friends documentary

I saw that a friend needed stories about online dating for his documentary that he was working on. I sent him a note offering to contribute! After going back and forth, I was able to share my story from using, dating the person and the end result of my experience with online dating.

While, obviously, this last situation online dating didn't end well, I would recommend it for anyone out there. There's plenty of people to meet and online dating just expands your options <3

You'll see me on there again when the time is right. :)

Day 331: Sympathies to a friend

One of my high school classmates father passed away suddenly. I sent a note to her passing on my condolences but to also let me know if she needed anything.

In response, she sent me the below message. This is just proof that any act, big or small, has a significant impact

Day 330: Spend time and get creative with my daughter

Today I spent time with my daughter making headbands! My friend, Becky, had given her this headband making gift set. I kept telling D that her and I would sit down and do it. It's a bit challenging (as I have expressed in other posts) trying to find the time when your newborn demands alot of attention and care!

But we did and I could tell D felt uber special. I made a green headband with hot pink feathers on it and a green rhinestone. D made several headbands too. She was so cute sporting her headbands and modeling them as if she was walking down a runway.

This photo below spoke to me as I am sure it will you too
