It’s Tuesday and you know what that means? It’s time to #FEEDTHEPIG!
Hamish, our Supernatural pig, has returned from his whirlwind tour of the shopping malls in Vancouver with a taste for snacks. He’s been scouring Random Act’s kitchen for popcorn, kale chips, and pie, but nothing seems to satisfy him like your love and adoration.
If you’d like to #FEEDTHEPIG this week, drop by our blog to take the trivia quiz. You might even want to show Hamish a little love on Crowdrise. Thanks to your generous support, we’re up to $3,700 in donations.
Half of the money we collect through FEEDTHEPIG will be donated to the Jacmel Children’s Center in Haiti and the other half will be used by Random Acts to fund acts of kindness throughout the year.
P.S. Hamish is proud that he’s started to inspire some fan art. This abnosome doodle is courtesy of the fabulous PaintingMouse. If you’d like to become an official #Haminion, you can tag your fan art, fanfic, and porcine-inspired poetry with #theRandomAct.org and #FEEDTHEPIG.
P.S.S. It looks like the sock monkeys have hidden this week’s quiz…so it won’t be updated until Wednesday, April 23. Hamish advises you to spend the extra day studying and contemplating which snacks to send his way.
We hope you’ll take a moment or two to do something kind today for our planet in honor of Earth Day.
Pick up some litter, volunteer a few hours at a local park or wildlife refuge, or plant a tree. It doesn’t matter how large or small, every act of kindness counts.
As Albert Einstein (a pretty smart fellow!) once said: “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” Understanding is the key to kindness.
So get out there and do some good and, while you’re at it, don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers. You deserve a little kindness too.
Can’t get enough of #GetKind? Well, here’s your chance to join us in a random act of awesomeness each Monday. We’re calling it Monday’s Mission.
Your mission for this week (should you choose to accept it) is to write an inspiring kindness haiku. You might even want to pen it on one of our kindness cards. (Dare we hope using a glitter pen.)
Share your card with someone who could use a smile, and then tag a pic of your abnosome poetry with #theRandomAct.org and #GetKind. We’d love to see your poetic awesomeness.
P.S. Hamish is hoping that you’ll consider dedicating a line (or three) to him. Poetry is almost as good as pie in his book.
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place. — Kurt Vonnegut
We’re honored to be included as one of the charity recipients in this year’s Hollywood Charity Horse Show on April 26.
On behalf of everyone here at Random Acts, we’d like to send a big virtual hug to William Shatner and a hearty good luck in this year’s GISHWHES.
P.S. Lots of luck tormenting What’s His Name whoever that may be.
