There is so much negative news out there (“if it bleeds, it leads”), some of us have chosen to stop reading/watching the news entirely.
I’d like to help change that.
Every Tuesday I will highlight an article I find that focuses on GOOD news. This column is called Good News Tuesday.
Spread the word.
This week’s entry comes from Debbie Tenzer via Happy News.
|Debbie’s book, Do One Nice Thing|
Little Things You Can Do to Make the World a Lot Nicer
A few years ago, Debbie Tenzer was feeling overwhelmed by all the crises in the news. But rather than give in to despair, she thought, Maybe I can’t solve our big problems, but I know I can do something.She realized that helping doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive or time-consuming.
Mailing more than 100 tons of school supplies to U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq, who give them to local children so they can study
• Sending countless books to schools, libraries, and hospitals
• Contributing numerous gifts for foster children, whose birthdays are often forgotten
• Donating tens of thousands of packages of pasta, cans of food, and other food items to food banks
Debbie’s book, Do One Nice Thing, has over 100 new, easy ideas for small deeds that anyone can do (and includes explicit information on how exactly to execute the ideas). There’s even a chapter of nice things you can do in minutes without leaving your desk.
So tell me, have you done one nice thing today? Share with us and inspire with your comments.
