A few weeks ago, Courtney Brown of Cents Of Style contacted me with a challenge…
We have the chance to create a tiny movement and we want you to be a part of it. We are partnering with Jane.com to bring the social media world the #BeTheGood campaign. With your help, we know this campaign will go viral and help promote goodness throughout the world.
How could I say no to such a worthy cause? I mean, what an awesome opportunity to do something, big or small, for another person. Challenge accepted!
So this morning, I put on my adorable #BeTheGood tee, along with my favorite #AmandasArmy necklace from StudioJewel, and set out to run some errands and hopefully bestow a few RAOKs. And then I promptly dribbled my Pumpkin Spice Latte down the front of my shirt…
Yes, I’m a bit of a spaz — but a shirt isn’t necessary to bring the light of kindness into this world. Although I do hope you’ll buy one of these adorable Be The Good t-shirts to support this campaign. They’re super cute and soooo comfortable!
So what’s my contribution to being the good so far? Well, so far I signed up to take dinner to a dear friend who just had a spinal fusion surgery.
Have you ever heard of Take Them A Meal? It’s an awesome little website that makes coordinating meals for those in need a cinch. You can even just send a dinner delivery if cooking is not your thing!
Here’s what’s on the menu:
Cilantro Lime Chicken — prepare this flavorful cilantro lime chicken with a side of corn and black beans all in one pot for super easy cleanup!!!
Coconut Milk Rice — my favorite way to serve this coconut milk rice is with a little lime and cilantro stirred in, a perfect easy weeknight side dish!
Chocolate Chip Muffins — these chocolate chip coffee muffins are moist and flavorful, amazing with a hot cup of coffee on a cool fall morning!
What do you think — sound yummy?
Now here’s the part where I challenge all of you to take a part in this movement and spread goodness throughout. Good luck my friends… I can’t wait to hear about your acts of kindness! See below for details:
1. Choose a good deed. Could be as simple as paying for the coffee after yours. (I do this one a lot — such a nice surprise for the car behind me!)
2. Share your goods. Pick your favorite social channel (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.), but first, make sure to take a selfie (or something appropriate to your story), and share your story, big or small. Be sure to use these hashtags to help this campaign spread: #BeTheGood, #JaneCares and #CentsofStyle. You’ll see your story featured on Jane.com!
3. Tag 1-5 of your friends to do the same.
4. Look stylish while doing it! Jane.com and Cents of Style are selling some super cute #BeTheGood t-shirts on Jane.com. All profits made will be donated to Girls Inc., an organization that inspires girls to be strong, smart and bold.
