GOOD DEED CHALLENGE
This week’s #ToxicTuesdayChallenge is about giving. Doing a good deed. A good deed is when you do something for the benefit of another person without asking for anything in return. Good deed is an action. Good deed’s should be done intentionally not for attention. We often see videos that go viral of people doing a good deed because someone who took a video or photo of that moment. Or there is the person who takes video of them doing a good deed to spread the word about helping others. Then there is the person who just does it for attention and personally I don’t think that’s the right way. What do you think? A good deed can be an action such as putting back a grocery cart after use or volunteering.
Here are some ways you can do a good deed.
1. Pick up trash around you
In last week’s challenge blog I talked about picking up trash around you. Not only do you help our environment and keeping our cities clean, but you are doing a good deed. It’s the simple act of picking up a trash and tossing it in a trash can. It takes a few seconds. I challenge you to start today by picking up trash around you for 1 week, you will make it a habit that you will want to do it all the time.
2. Donate unneeded items
If you haven’t used that sweater that’s in your closet for more than 2 years and you still don’t have intention of using it— it’s time to donate it! It’s good to clean out your closet once every 6 month to 1 year and donate items you have not used. Spring cleaning is still a whiles away. Summer is over so we can put away our summer clothes or even better give away clothes that we won’t use again. Let’s do the deed and donate unneeded items. Kitchen items, clothing, blankets, shoes I mean the list goes on and on.
3. Donate Blood
Donating blood is the act of voluntarily having your blood drawn that is then used for a blood transfusion for someone in need. Blood is replaced every 48 hours of donating. You loose red blood cells when you donate, those cells are replaced after 48 hours of donating. Donating blood helps save lives. I do recommend to contact your doctor before you donate blood. Why? Because people who are ill cannot donate. There are certain requirements before you donate. Check your local Red Cross and donate.
4. Paying a Random Person’s Meal in Line/Buying a Homeless a Meal
How many times has it happened to you that you get to the front of the line ready to pay and when the total rings up you are a few dollars short? The best thing a person around you can do is take out those few dollars you need and pay for your items, but does it happen often? Not really! So next time you are in a line at the grocery store, fast food place, coffee shop or if you see a homeless do the good deed and pay for their meal or those extra dollars at the grocery store.
There are many many ways you can do good deeds you can choose from the list:
1. Throw away someone's trash
3. Open a door for someone
4. Help an elder carry their groceries
5. Visit a Nursing home
6. Return a Shopping Cart
7. Give your change to a person in need
8. Pay a bill for someone
9. Buy Groceries for someone
10. A smile can brighten someone's day
You get the idea. The list goes on and on.
This week’s #ToxicTuesdayChallenge for this week to do a good deed for the whole week. One good deed a day. You will feel better about yourself. Doing a good deed comes back to you sooner or later. I’m not saying do a good deed so it comes back to you only for that reason. Do it because you mean it. When you least expect it—it comes back to you. Don’t forget to tag us on Facebook and @toxicoapparel with you results and your stories. If you have an idea or a blog and you would like to share it with us contact us and you can be the next author.
