It’s almost November, so I am going to re-challenge everyone I know to go out of their way do a good deed for someone every day for the entire month. To read a description of my challenge from last year, click here! It turns out I’m not the only one trying to turn others into do-gooders. I’ve recently returned to Vancouver and am thrilled to see an advertising campaign on bus stop shelters for peopleforgood.ca. Their goal:
“to make the world a better place, one good deed at a time. It may sound ambitious but it’s easier than you’d think. In fact, you could help make the world a better place right now. Just by doing something nice for someone. Rest assured, we’re not asking for money, we just want you to donate a little generosity.”
Sounds good, eh?
In other news, I met an incredibly talented group of writers at the Carnegie Centre in the Downtown Eastside. The Fire-Writers gather together to write short prose or poetry pieces based on a spontaneously concocted prompt. I had the pleasure of joining them for one session and hope to be with them for more! They recently made a chapbook—that you’ll have a difficult time getting your hands on if you don’t live in Vancouver! But fret not—they post some of their work on their blog.
