Grow The Good With Sunbites #GoodGrows

*Sponsored post

 

I have a new giveaway for you today, but first I want to tell you a bit about the Sunbites #GoodGrows campaign and what I got up to when they challenged me to do a good deed.

 

Grow the Good with Sunbites

 

Sunbites believes that one small act of goodness can inspire others to do the same, having a ripple effect that turns into a wave of good. Whether the initial act is a move to improve the environment, volunteering for charity or inviting your colleague on your lunchtime stroll, we believe that #GoodGrows, and we would like to seed some goodness back into Britain!

 

As someone who thinks that kind is one of the very best things a person can be, I love the whole idea of Sunbites’ #GoodGrows campaign. A ripple effect of kind and caring acts is definitely something that I can get behind.

As I mentioned above, Sunbites challenged me to do a good deed and I did. Well actually I did one and it felt so good, that my ‘good’ deed had a ripple effect on me as well and I did a few more.

 

My main good deed was to do a random act of kindness, something that I have wanted to do for ages but felt a little shy about doing. I do kind things for people when the opportunity arises all the time, but actively seeking out a stranger to approach like this, made me strangely nervous.

 

I wrote a message on a post-it which I sellotaped to an envelope. Inside the envelope was enough money to pay for someone’s car park ticket. I parked opposite the car parking meter, so that I could catch someone before they bought their ticket. The Tween who was in the car with me helped to keep look out, someone arrived quickly though.

I ran over and gave her the envelope and explained it was a random act of kindness and she was so grateful and said thank you. She still looked a bit shocked as we drove out of the car park, as she waved again to thank me.

 

So how did it feel? Embarrassing at first ha, but then pretty warm and fuzzy and all that jazz. I was on a bit of a high for the rest of the day. Since then I’ve arranged to give school uniform that we don’t need to another Mum to use, I’ve sorted a huge pile of clothes (some with the labels still on..) for charity and I’ve given someone a lot of advice, links to helpful sites and help on starting their own blog.

 

The Sunbites team are doing their own part to give back to society and deliver goodness around the world with their #GoodGrows campaign. They have partnered with CARE International to launch the ‘Light Her Path’ initiative, aimed at improving the lives of women and children around the world by providing the education they deserve. This fantastic initiative helps in a lot of ways, including building eco-friendly learning centres that are powered by solar panels. You can find out more about this on the Sunbites website.

 

There’s a little bit of taste good and do good in every bite.

    I found an iphone when out walking my dog recently and managed to get it back to the owner after calling her ‘mum’ from the list of contacted stored on it. Her mum told me where her daughter lived so I could take it back to her – which I did!

    I have been giving my friends and neighbours vegetables that i have growing on my allotment. It has been a bumper year and there is far too much for my family so it’s nice to pass some nice fresh produce on to others.

    We give away lots of things we no longer use on the local Freecycle pages, especially things like baby items as you tend to find a lot of new mums needing these kind of things and they can be so expensive when they mount up to buy new

    Ah, that’s so kind of you! I saw a man with lots of bags who looked homeless. I asked if he was ok and he said he hadn’t eaten in 48hrs as his partner had kicked him out. I suggested he go to a shelter. I said that I couldn’t give him money but I did pop into Sainsbury’s and I bought him a sandwich, which he was very grateful for.

    I was in a charity shop a few days ago when I noticed a man on a mobility scooter gazing disappointedly through the window. A went out side to ask if he was okay and he explained that he really wanted the cookery book in the window but knew he couldn’t navigate his scooter through this particular shop. So I went inside and bought it for him, he was delighted.

    I try my best to do something kind every day, such as helping a neighbour, giving up my place in the queue or carrying someone’s shopping. I think the kindest thing I’ve ever managed was to help an elderly lady out that had broken down on a busy road.
