Help Me Celebrate My 40th... with 40 Acts of Kindness!

Every year, my husband Mark asks me what I want for my birthday. Sometimes he surprises me with a gift he heard me mention I wanted earlier in the year. Sometimes I tell him exactly what I want. But this year feels a little different for me.

As I lay in bed last night, I couldn't think of anything that I just "had to have." As I said a prayer, thanking God for all the blessings in my life, IT HIT ME. I want to bless other peoples' lives...I want to make a difference in the world!

So, for my 40th birthday celebration, I'm going to do 40 random acts of kindness for unsuspecting people. And if you'd like to give me a gift for my birthday - my wish is that you join me! I want to share this adventure with as many people as possible.

For my local friends and family, we're meeting from 1pm - 5pm at the Danville Yoga & Wellness Center 125A Town & Country Drive Danville, CA 94526 www.DanvilleYogaWellnessCenter.com

We'll gather, go out and do some acts of kindness, and of course eat, drink and be merry. We'll have plenty of ideas for acts of kindness ready for you.

If you're not in the area on that day, please do an act of kindness, then post a pic or write on my Facebook wall, and tell me what you did for someone else! CLICK HERE to go to my Facebook events page. Won't it be more fun and inspirational to read what everyone did, than to see a bunch of "Happy Birthday" posts?? :)

Maria Haswell is the founder of SpreadKindness.org , A non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to promoting kindness in everyday life & co-owner of Danville Yoga & Wellness Center for your body, mind, and soul.

This is TRULY going to be one of my best birthdays EVER! Thank you!
