Apparently our friend Tim Nester has discovered the addictive power of these do-good ninja missions. Yeah, Tim! Just days after his first outing, he’s logged another one already. Care to give him a run for his money? Can you out-ninja this guy?
After a successful first mission, I decided that I didn’t quite pay it forward enough. (Can you ever?) I also wanted to do something family-oriented with this one. Luckily I was provided with the perfect family-outing equipment from mientertainment.biz’s CEO Jim Fordyce — four movie passes to Lansing Mall West Cinemas. What #lovelansing family wouldn’t love a chance to go to the movies for free?
Armed with a red bendy ninja and the movie passes, I proceeded to the Westside YMCA. I was going to work out anyway and I figured that would be a good place to find a worthy recipient.
I pulled in and spent five minutes in my car trying to figure out how to pass this along to a family that would like a night out. Inspiration! I spotted a green minivan (family car if there ever was one) and settled on this as my target. Remembering to be stealthy, I swooped around the vehicle quickly and was able to confirm that this was where the red bendy ninja belonged. Two kid seats in the back of a minivan … these good people deserved some entertainment!
Placing my ninja and envelope containing the passes and a card, I snapped a couple of photos and was gone in a flash! (I’m getting good at this whole “invisible in plain sight” deal.)
Off I went to go exercise with renewed energy and vigor. Once the workout was complete I returned to my car and noticed that the minivan was gone. Hopefully their day was brightened just a bit by a little bit of #lovelansing positivity and an impending night out at the movies.
Now that Mission No. 2 is in the books, I can’t wait for the weekend. More bendy ninjas to put to use, and more #lovelansing vibes to spread.
Can’t wait to keep paying it forward! Ninja on!
We should note: Our plan is to keep your identity secret when you send us your own ninja missions. But because Tim has show us such public love (and picked up some super-awesome bendy ninjas to use as his calling card), we have lifted the veil on him. You? We’ll keep your identity under wraps.
