Candy Inspired Random Acts of Kindness

40th birthday #RAOK celebration sorry for not keeping up to the daily Random Acts of Kindness posts like I promised. I did say I would try to post daily, but life gets in the way and know the story!

I've been very good at doing one a day but if for some odd reason I don't go out in public on a particular day, I make up for it the following day. This "challenge" has been so much fun. Those that I've witnessed giving the actual RAOK to makes me smile. They are usually surprised and taken back! It's fun to watch their expression!

#RAOK (Random Acts of Kindness) using candy

So, here is a round-up of a few candy Random Acts of Kindness that I did!

From the top left corner: Riesen (Remember, everything happens for a Riesen)--this was my favorite to hand to the person. She was so grateful--and the only one to date that wished me a happy birthday and a year full of blessings! Check out my instagram post with the story!

Top right corner: Mint M-n-Ms (You are Marvelous)--I gave this to a lady at the grocery store. She smiled, but was a little unsure!

Bottom left corner: Pop Rocks (Hope your day ROCKS)--I gave this to the young lady barista at a Starbucks. She had been so pleasant to everyone that day (I was "working" out of there that day), so I decided she was going to be the recipient! She was so surprised!!

Bottom right corner: Snickers (No need to SNICKER, U GOT THIS) this one had to be my funniest ones I've done so far. I left it in a women's bathroom stall. I love the play on words!! A little humor never hurt anyone! The feedback I got from my friends was that they wouldn't take a candy bar from a bathroom. C'mon--its wrapped!

I can't wait to share more of my Random Acts of Kindness with you!

Day 2 of #RAOK

So yesterday was a fun day! I met a friend in Madison, WI for lunch and catching up. After lunch I decided I needed to hand out my Random Act of Kindness for the day. (did you miss my post from yesterday?) I wanted it to be a surprise this time. So, as we went to our cars, I found one that looked like it was a "moms" car--you know, with car seats inside! And I carefully stuck a rolled up magazine in between her driver side window and mirror.

It's a countdown!

Yesterday marked the 40th day before my 40th birthday. I decided to do something meaningful and fun to celebrate. Not that this idea is new or anything, but thought I'd try to brighten someone's day while approaching my big 4-0!

And so it begins...40 days of Random Acts of Kindness!

I'm going to do my best to do daily updates with the RAOK I committed! So, here is the first of 40:

40th Birthday Random Act of Kindness day 1

I made the tags on the coolest new site I discovered, Canva. I was "working" at Panera and there was a hard working young lady cleaning up the dining area, bathrooms and coffee station. I decided she needed this. On my way out of the store, I stopped by her and said: "Here, I hope this brightens your day." She looked at me surprised and said, "thanks." And that was all I needed.

Can't wait to share with you what I do today!!

Happy Tuesday!
