30 Deeds for 30 Days

Ctrl+A to select all, Ctrl+C to copy

I will be turning 30 on April 20th and I decided that this year I would like to do something special to celebrate. I've come up with something that I think will be a lot of fun. It's called 30 Deeds for 30 Days.

The idea behind 30/30 is that for every day in April you do one small thing (or big thing) to make a difference in your world. A couple of ideas for things that you could do are:

  • Donate some time to a local charity.
  • Help an elderly neighbor with some yardwork.
  • If you go out to eat and your waitress is good, make a point to mention to the manager how good her service was (and leave a good tip).
  • Pick up a couple of extra things at the grocery store and drop them off at a food shelf.
  • Give a genuine compliment to someone you don't really get along with.
  • Drop a couple of coins in a meter that's about to expire.

The point of this is no good deed is too small. 30 small deeds can add up to a lot of positive change in your world. The more people that we can get involved with this, the better. There are three things that you can do to get involved.

  1. Post the 30 Deeds for 30 Days banner on your own blog. The more people that see and click it, the bigger the change that we can make!
  2. Post about what you've done in your blog. It's a good way to give people ideas of what they can do. Don't worry if you're not an every day type of blogger. Just talk about what you've done when you do blog. Remember, this is for fun!
  3. Every day I'll post about what I've done. Leave a comment letting other people know what your deed was. This is another good way to give people ideas for what deed to do. It's also a good way to get a little traffic at you're site (if you're into that kind of thing).

Have fun with this! No deed is too big or two small. Every deed that you do will help to make a difference in your world. No go out there and spread the word and do some good!

Sticky was adding something to the post and she forgot to sign out before she commented. Now it looks like I'm talking about how awesome I am. And I am awesome, I just don't like to be that forward about it.

Ok, I took the banner. It is at the very bottom on my site though. I hope people get down that far.

I turn 30 as well, on the 25th....ahh huh? LOL... It is funny though because I don't mind it so much. It is like a sophistication or something.

My deeds will probably all be kid related, but I will try to post about them. I try to do a good deed everyday anyways.

Apparently, the duct tape, or any other tape, suffocates the wart as it cuts off oxygen and alloww the body's immune system to kill the wart. Cholera is an acute infection of the small intestine, and it can be life-threatening. This sounds drastic but as long as you pay due care and attention when carrying the task out the removal should happen without a hitch.

As Bangalore distinctively experienced the most preferred destination
for the leading housing companies to express the latest housing projects known responsible for the growth of the city in general.
Analysts predicted a price correction in the Chennai Real Estate market but prices have remained stable for apartments and villas, the only way for
prices of land to go down is to move further away from the
city, the only option for developers right now looks to be to develop integrated townships where work places and residences can be developed simultaneously,
the concept of living inside the city to work might just
change over the next few years. Just use the three principles you
would for any business: buy at a price you can afford; sell for more
than you paid, and sell in a measurable time frame.

In fact the issues involved with female infertility are far more complex than male infertility. In most women, if the cycle is regular, ovulation period occurs between the 11th and 21st day of the cycle. But, you need to be very careful before planning the second pregnancy.
