Contest of Love...Win something free by just writing!
Hello beloved friends,
Cay and I were talking tonight about the biggest problems that we believe our generation currently faces. It was an amazing conversation that we had (and I highly suggest you talking about this with your significant other; it makes for great insight) and we reached some very good points. One of the points that we talked about was an attitude of indifference that seems to be spreading through our society like wildfire. It's an attitude of "ok people are dying, but it doesn't bug me any."
That may be a drastic statement, but I think some of you may agree that this is true.
"It's all good as long as it doesn't affect me."
This leads to mindsets that are even more disturbing such as...
"As long as it benefits me, it must be good."
I believe that these mindsets can lead to catastrophic ends such as this one.
But alas, we are small and the world is large. What can we really do?
A lot actually. Mother Teresa said, "If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed one." We are called to change the world in small ways. Think about what could happen if everyone in the world did something small every single day to help each other. Something so small like paying for the toll for the person behind you on the interstate, or talking to the kid in the cafeteria who everyone avoids, or buying Vince and Cay a new house (kidding).
We are therefore having our first contest on this blog!
We want to hear the stories of our beloved friends doing small acts of kindness! You have the next 3 days to do this. So start immediately. And we want to hear all the details. You can send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org
And the best part is that there is a prize (yes we know this defeats the purpose of being altruistic, but hey we can have fun too right?)!
The prize is 25 euros worth of Swiss and Austrian Chocolate (and it won't be all Milka in case you people from Vienna were wondering), which will be mailed to your doorstep, no matter where you are in the world!
Awesome... good deeds and free Swiss and Austrian Chocolate.
The prize will go to the best 2 stories.
Soooo here are the details for this contest:
1) One story of doing a small act of love for someone else, and explain why you think it was a good act. :-)
2) 3 days to do it. The deadline is on Tuesday, February 22 2011 at 9:00pm (CET).
3) Submit your entries to email@example.com.
4) The entries will be reviewed by Cay and Vince and we will choose two winners.
5) We will post the winning entries on Wednesday, February 22 2011.
6) We will mail the winners each 25 Euros worth of Swiss and Austrian Chocolate!
Some come on people spread the love!
