“Black Friday” or “doorbuster” seem to be the only words in anyone’s vocabulary right now. For the people who need to work Thursday or Friday, the job can be a really brutal one. What if we changed the focus – just for a quick minute – as the holiday shopping season kicks into high gear?
Whether you can’t wait to get out the door to hit the sales or are planning to be at home hiding under a blanket with some yummy leftovers and planning to “shop small” at local businesses over the weekend, what if you took 10 minutes that day to do an act of kindness?
Maybe it’s buying coffee for the doctors or nurses working over the holiday or dropping off a box of doughnuts at that big-box store where the employees are starting to go cross-eyed or even offering somebody a hand carrying packages they’re struggling with?
It’s the little stuff that can really turn the day around for someone who’s having a hard time. Whaddya say, Lansing?
And don’t forget to share your stories! We hope to help spread a wave of kindness around #lovelansing in the midst of the chaos of the season.
Go forth and be kind! And please know that we’re thankful for all YOU do to make our city better!
