One of the community service groups that I belong to has challenged our community to do generous acts for the entire month of February.
28 Days of Generosity grew from casual conversations that the coordinator of the foundation had with school children, children who naturally tend toward a spirit of giving. The program then morphed into a list of suggestions and ideas for how individuals could be more generous in their everyday lives. That list then became a rally-cry for the community-at-large to jump on the generosity bandwagon, and, lo and behold; a movement was born.
Today is Day 1 of the 28 Days of Generosity; I brought muffins to the office for the entire staff.
On my desk, I found a mini manicure set from my office mate and a general feeling of togetherness in the office.
I have often said that February is the longest month; this year, I might just be sorry when February is over.
