Something truly incredible happens when people give. Sure, Oprah kind of cornered the market on the whole “You get a car! you get a car! Everyone gets a car!” kind of giving, but we’re talking about the small little gifts that are so easily overlooked. When they are all added up, hearts are softened and entire communities can change.
One of our writers wrote about a Facebook group she encountered that inspired her that a group of moms doing small acts of kindness can make a large impact. So we thought, why not take it a step further?
Let’s drive the Love Train into Milwaukee.
How does it work?
It’s simple. Just do something kind for someone else, something that costs you something. It could mean spending some extra money at Starbucks to buy someone a coffee, giving away that gift card you got for Christmas, or spending some time baking a homemade meal for that person you always see standing at the same street corner. Step out of your comfort zone and go for it!
