Invest in Kindness

Some six months ago, I told you in this post about Reed Sandridge and his yearlong experiment to give $10 a day to a complete stranger, all while unemployed. His blog, "Year of Giving," chronicles the challenge that he set forth for himself, in honor of his mother. Reed's experiment concluded in mid-December with a celebration that included as many of his recipients as he could round up.

I can remember being so happy for Reed when he shared in late summer that he had landed a job, just shortly before I landed a job of my own. So, I guess that's it, right? With employment secured, there is no need to practice this act of selfless giving any longer--mission accomplished.

Wait...are you saying that because he got a job, he quit giving?

What a beautiful story! In a time when people should have been helping Reed out, he was sacrificing to help others. It's very hard to help others out when you're struggling yourself...but the giving should definitely keep going once you are in a better financial situation. Great writing, Stacie!
