Birthday Thanks

Consider this our version of a thank-you card.

Misha’s birthday was this week, and we are incredibly grateful for all you did to celebrate.  A giant, international party celebrating our fearless leader and the good works he inspires.

We thought some people might do something special to celebrate.  What we didn’t expect was the outpouring of kindness we found across social media (mostly on tumblr, with the hashtag #randomapocalypse).

Of course, we can’t show off every act performed in this blog post.  Here are just a few examples of the inspiring exploits that make us proud to be part of Random Acts:

Tumblr user shut-upimbatman recruited a few friends to hold up signs to passing cars, displaying inspirational messages:

“For some people we gave them little cards, paper hearts, and paper hats with compliments on them. We got to make so many people smile which made the day amazing. We met that lovely couple while we were walking along and they let us take a picture with them. It was overall an amazing day”.

More inspirational messaging from @MinaYildes.  Don’t you wish a stranger would tell you you’re “rocking that outfit”?

weirdhermitsunited added this perfect example of combining baked goods and Random Acts, making “muffins for her gals at the Goodwill”.  Vielen Dank to you!

Mandi Bennett drew some smiley faces and dropped them off at her local nursing home.  The pictures say ‘Smile and know somebody cares’.  The residents don’t receive many visitors, and Mandi hopes this will cheer them up.

And finally, Adrianna and her friends handed out bouquets of flowers to people in their city (and cooled off in a fountain, which looked like lots of fun):

“Thank you because this has been an exceptional day. We have made so many people’s day just a little bit brighter simply by doing really tiny things”. 

Thanks to everyone who participated in this special day.

Another thank you is due.

At last count, you guys raised an amazing, mind-blowing $29,000 for Random Acts in honor of Misha’s birthday.  We promise to honor these gifts by putting a little more kindness into the world.  Thanks for setting the example.
