{July} Heartfelt Acts

Today I am sharing my Heartfelt Acts for July with Emmy Mom!  If you have any you would like to share, you can link up on our Heartfelt Acts Page anytime!  There is no set day or time for you to write about your experience, but just sharing the details to pass it on.  You are open to do anything to show Heartfelt Acts!!

This months prompt:


1.  Leave a sweet message or gift to Thank your mail carrier.
2.  Gather up some books that can be donated to a library or Goodwill/Salvation Army.

Deep in the midst of summer, we have been so busy that I feel like I can’t even see straight.  The month blew past us and I don’t feel like the best Heartfelt promoter.  I did a few things this month but I find myself comparing to previous months were I did so much more.  I think its important to stress to you and remind myself that Heartfelt Acts don’t have to be over the top.  It’s the little things that make a difference in the big picture.

Our daycare set up another blood drive and they seem to always have a small turn out for donations.  I wasn’t able to get others to sign up with me, but I went ahead and took one for the team and donated again.  It seems like there is always a shortage and if you can find a local Red Cross or even Carter Blood Care to sign up to donate to, I highly encourage it.  There is a benefit to you by giving to others as you can also acquire information about your own health.  As you all know from my post Monday where I shared that our community lost our DJ and news reports are saying he passed away due to heart failure because of blockage in his arteries.  When you give blood, they do a free screening of your cholesterol and this time, I found out mine went up.  Sadly, I had to cut back on my donut intake but might not have if I didn’t know about my cholesterol going up.  Great to know that helping others is also a great way to help yourself too.
Sticking with the theme of helping others with my Monday’s post, I was moved to buy this shirt with the following saying:
Kidds Kids Fundraiser Shirt In Memory of Kidd Kraddick

Portion of the proceeds from this purchase goes to Kidd’s Kids Charity.  I know that even though Kidd has passed away, his legacy to continue the Charity will continue and I for one will always find a way to give for this cause.  

We are about to get into the school year and the holidays will be here before you know it!! I love these ideas for August.  I have personally had someone pay it forward for me and I can’t wait to do this for another person!  So, are you interested in getting started with us in sharing your Heartfelt Acts?  Its never too late to start doing good things for those around you.  Please feel free to include your post in our Master Linkup and remember there is no specific time or thing you have to do.

1.  Pay it forward in a drive thru; you can pay for 1 or 2 cars back. If you have a plan to do this, you could even write a little Pay it Forward note to wish them a great day.
2.  Cook a meal or a dessert for someone.

I should give blood, I always forget about that opportunity to serve.

Our dear friends were a Kidd's Kids family a couple of years ago and it was a priceless experience for them - a true blessing in every way. Thank you for donating to his charity/legacy.

Good for you for donating blood! You are right they always are in need. They won't take my blood since I had open heart surgery.

Okay so dumb question but when going through a drive through do you just say you want to pay for the person behind you? And I guess they have already ordered so they know their total by then correct? Okay I think I answered my own question while asking! :)

Girl, I admire you for giving blood! I'm such a chicken, I've even attempted to get close to that big, scary needle. :\ Good for you!

Love this link up idea! I wish I could give blood too, but I nearly pass out every time I do. Maybe I just need to suck it up and do it anyway! Happy weekend!
