How Can Sean Help You? – My ‘On Purpose Acts Of Kindness’ Campaign
I have been thinking about this for a very long time. I have been very blessed in my life and for that I am truly grateful. I know that most of us, when we take the time to count our blessings, can find a lot of things to be thankful for, yet still there are times when the world seems to overload a person, or family, with problems with money or time or lack of resources. I have been there many times. If that is you right now, I want to help.
You see a lot of people doing these really amazing "random acts of kindness" and I love that. I have even paid for a few people behind me in a drive-thru myself a few times. I think it is a wonderful idea and something we should all practice, but to me there was always one drawback... "random."
How can you truly know the person you are helping is the one who really needs it that day? How do you know if it isn't really something else that would really turn their day or week around? When it's random, you can't. So I thought, what about asking people who need just a little help what they need and then finding a way to make it happen for them.? I'd like to try. And I'd like to let everyone in on the process and result. Maybe I will make a video each time to share so we ALL can get a good feeling about helping out someone who needs and deserves a hand.
Now, I am not naive. I know this will not be easy, but for the sake of purpose, I am willing to give it a shot. The problem is I am by no means rich or a man with a whole lot of time so the "projects" can not be too big, or too expensive but I am a man with a lot of friends who may or may not help me out and that is what I will TRY to rely on from time to time.
The important part, the thing that will make this work or not work, is the responses I get from YOU! I need people to help. It is not pity, it is not charity even, it is merely working with the knowledge that some people just get underneath things once in a while and just need a hand. Let me be that hand. So...
What do you need? Are you riding around on a donut tire because you can't afford to get the new one yet? Maybe your kid needs warm coats for school and you just can't get them right now. Perhaps you have something broken in the house and you don't have the tools or knowledge to get it fixed and you can't afford a professional. Is your lawn covered with leaves and overgrown and you just don't have the time to get it done because you are working two or three jobs to feed the family? Maybe there is someone you love who has been struggling and working too hard and you just want to take them out for a dinner that neither of you can afford. I don't know.
YOU tell me! Maybe you know someone who is in need and truly deserves a little helping hand and maybe some inspiration. Is there someone you know who just needs to know that people, even strangers really do care? LET ME KNOW!
I know I won't be able to help everyone who asks but maybe I can help a few, maybe it's you. We wont know if we don't try right?
