Heart Of Gold
With the holiday season around the corner, we're all feeling that little extra warmth in our hearts. Use those feelings to bring good cheer with a kind gesture or 42. And whether the gestures are random or intentional, a bit of kindness can go a long way, even if you have only five seconds or an entire day to give.

Whether you leave the cookies for your family to enjoy or drop them off for someone who might need something sweet in their life, a surprise batch of cookies could result in one sugary smile.
Drive the carpool
Are the kiddos in soccer, cheering or another activity that involves driving to another location? Raise your hand for an extra pitch in to relieve one of the other mamas.
Have a pile of magazines that you don't want to throw away but are unsure of what to do with? Stack them up and leave them in an intensive care unit or surgical waiting room. The patients' friends and family will thank you.
Pick up/cook dinner
Know a busy or perhaps sick mom who could use an extra hour this evening? Pick up or cook dinner for her family. The kindness will mean the world to her.
The Red Cross and United Blood Services are always in need. Turn your hour into a gift to a stranger.
Pick up the phone
In a world of social media frenzy, a simple phone call instead of a text, email, Facebook message or Instagram tag could go a long way.
Help a neighbor
After you tend to your yard, help someone on your street who you know could use a hand.
