Acts of Kindness Winners Revealed
On December 17th 2007 bloggers all around the globe took part in a blog campaign: Bloggers Unite in Acts of Kindness. The idea was to do an act of love, kindness and or compassion and blog all about it on the given day. The result was an overwhelming response from hundreds of bloggers who shared their experiences! There is no official count on the number of entries but fellow blogger Andy Beard featured 98 posts two days after the end of the campaign including my post. :-)
When I did my act of kindness, I didn’t even think there were prizes involved. I’m sure the same was true for all who supported the call hence its success. It wasn’t forced. It wasn’t show off. The entries were real and from reading the different posts, one can feel the love and effort involved in accomplishing the acts.
I was pleasantly surprised to find my blog among the TOP 20! I am listed among the eight through seventeenth place (in no particular order) winners and the prize is an AD placement on USA Today Print Edition!
