1000th post, my good deed of the day

Recommended Posts

I sent my daughter to school with extra school supplies today. I told her that they were any student that may not have been able to find/buy everything on the list and to give them to her teacher. Perhaps, a little pay it forward would help lighten the mood! What good deed will you do today?

what a nice thread to start. I try to do a good deed of the day each day. I found that nothing snaps me out of a bad mood faster than doing something nice for someone else.

 

I park in a visitor lot so often my good deed is just giving someone who is lost detailed directions.

 

A great one done by someone else recently was this:

 

a friend of mine is going though a rough time. her mom has cancer for the 2nd time in 4 years. a coworker put a giftbag on her desk full of smaller packages wrapped in tissue. the note said to open one on days when she needs a pick me up. they were just trinkets & chocolate. This friend copied the idea & did the same thing for her mom. her mom said it has been a wonderful thing to get her through a tough time.

 

I've been meaning to put some stuff together to send the friend's mom. things like magazines, a cd of uplifting music, etc. maybe i'll do that today for my good deed o' the day.

I love this idea, I am stealing it!

Great thread! This morning I helped one of the elderly ladies in my building in with her groceries- but I always do that if I see someone struggling.

- I think an actual good deed yesterday was that I helped a man who's metrocard was empty. I have a monthly unlimited and he was foreign and kept swiping it- I was one my way out and swiped him in. He was confused but grateful. :)

I love good deeds. They remind me that there are good people in the world. Today there was a woman in front of me on the subway who must have gotten dressed in the dark (sooo me) and was wearing her shirt inside out and backwards. I gently mentioned it to her.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
