Random Acts of Kindness During The Season of Giving



The holiday season is a time for giving. A time for loving. A time for caring. A time for generosity.

Ever since becoming a parent, my biggest focus with my children has been on sharing our blessings with others and giving our time to make a difference in the lives of others. No matter how busy our lives may become, I never want to lose focus on what is important – volunteering.


This holiday season, we have decided that instead of filling our tummies with Thanksgiving turkey, we are going to fill hearts with love by spending the holiday building a playground in Mexico. Our goal is to spread love, kindness, and compassion to children this holiday season.


While we are in Mexico, I am giving my children ten one dollar bills to attach to a message of kindness to give to the children that they meet at the school where we are volunteering in Mexico during Thanksgiving break. The idea of giving money attached to messages of love was inspired by the ECCU #GiveTen Generosity Challenge.


ECCU, a full-service credit union, designed for Christians, is encouraging families to spread kindness this holiday season with their #GiveTen Generosity Challenge. To take $10 and spend it towards making a difference in the lives of others during the holiday season. Imagine the impact would be on our community if just 100 families gave $10 towards a good cause? The simplest things like buying a cup of coffee for the person behind you in line could change someone’s life.


We encourage all of you to join this movement of giving this holiday season and take $10 to make a difference in the lives of others. We want to hear your stories! Share your story, photos or videos on the ECCU Facebook page for a chance to win a $500 check from ECCU. Imagine how much farther your opportunity to spread generosity could be by winning $500??

Since 2005, ECCU has awarded $4.58 million in grants to ministries just like the mission trip we are taking to Mexico as part of the #GiveTen Generosity Challenge. They offer competitive checking, savings, investing, and loan products help you do more with your money. So with every dollar you spend, you’re supporting the ministry.

Don’t forget to share how your family gives $10 to others this holiday season by using the hashtag #GiveTen on social media.
