I have been challenged by Jane.com and Cents of Style to participate in their #BeTheGood campaign! And as Barney Stinson would confidently say, challenge accepted! What sweet opportunity to do something, big or small, for another person. Through this challenge I chose to pick up someone's dinner tab anonymously.
The other night Connor and I went out to eat dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Towards the end of our meal, we saw an old, scruffy-looking man enter the restaurant and sit down at a table. I don't know if he was homeless or not, but I could definitely tell he didn't have the most ideal lifestyle. Right as we were about to pay our bill, I had this feeling that we should pay for his tab as well. Connor agreed that we should (another reason I love the man so dearly) so we asked our waiter to add the old man's dinner tab to our check, paid, and left the restaurant. I'll never know how the old man reacted to hearing that his dinner was paid for, but I'll always remember that feeling Connor and I left with. The feeling that we did something good. Sure, Connor and I have our own financial struggles and stresses, but we have to remember that there is always someone out there that has it worse than us.
I challenge all of you to take a part in this movement and spread goodness throughout! I also personally challenge Jessica, Lauren, Rachel, Gentri, & Bri! Good luck my friends--you have 24 hrs to complete a service or act of kindness (kind of like the Ice Bucket Challenge, minus the ice water). See below for details:
1. Choose a good deed. Could be as simple as paying for the coffee or meal after yours.
2. Share your goods. Pick your favorite social channel (Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Twitter, etc.), but first, make sure to take a selfie (or something appropriate to your story), and share your story, big or small. Be sure to use these hashtags to help this campaign spread: #BeTheGood #JaneCares and #CentsofStyle. You’ll see your story featured on Jane.com!
3. Tag 1-5 of your friends to do the same within a 24 hr period.
4. Look stylish while doing it! Jane.com and Cents of Style are selling some super cute #BeTheGood t-shirts on Jane.com. All profits made will be donated to Girls Inc. an organization that inspires girls to be strong, smart and bold.
"Be the change that you wish to see in the world."
Even an awkward hug counts.
