I suppose I should explain some of my silence for the past while.
As you all know, I'm a member of the military. Helping people has always been something that has driven me and for a while now that has taken the form of protecting others. While on my last deployment though, I discovered an amazing company called Random Acts. These seemingly disparate people from all walks of life have come together with one common goal:
To change how people see others and to change the world itself through random acts of kindness.
I joined their ranks and have, since then, never regretted a moment of it. I've found myself spending less time with my head in my headphones and more time just talking to the people around me. I'm meeting people I never thought I would. I'm making a difference one person at a time just by doing something nice. The big thing here is that it doesn't take a monumental effort either. Random Acts brought it to my attention that just taking two minutes to tell someone I like their earrings can really change that person's whole day. That takes, what? Two seconds? For the person having a bad day, those two seconds could mean a world of difference.
Just recently, Random Acts began to restructure and they asked for some volunteers to help out. I put my name in and suddenly found myself as the Assistant Director of a world wide non-profit organization. All of our staff are volunteers and they are some of the most talented, driven, and amazing people I've ever had the honor of working with.
Now, we need your help. The Random Act is now up for a shorty award on Twitter. If you have a Twitter account, please take just a few seconds of your time to vote for us. I provided the link below and it's doesn't cost anything from you but a few seconds time.
Thank you so much! Your support helps get our name out there to the world.
