Good Deeds Aren’t Just for Christmas
I was part of Coke’s Good Deeds campaign. As a blogger I blogged about it earlier, tweeted about it, Vine’d it, and actually went out of my way to do good deeds.
I took time to listen to two different sets of carollers – one at the office singing a Christmas carol for one of the staff and once in town.
I thanked our postman and gave him a surprise gift of a bottle of wine. Try as I might, I never managed to catch our bin men so I have a tub of chocolates for them around the house still.
I offered to be a designated driver (and was) three times over the holidays including driving from Wales back to Oxfordshire on Boxing Day. We didn’t drive anywhere Christmas Day but I would have happily been designated driver then too.
I surprised husband by hanging a glass mistletoe and frequently hugging and kissing him under it.
I helped three people with luggage, including one of the guys at the office who had the largest suitcase I have ever seen!
I wore a silly hat of my own making to make my co-workers laugh. They actually thought it was nice and it brightened up their day.
I paid several people compliments they weren’t expecting. I try and be complimentary but I’m a bit shy so this was a challenging good deed to complete!
When I wished a complete stranger Merry Christmas they smiled at first then looked at me like I was a bit loony 😀
I tried to give someone a home made card but she has been away so my special secret for her is now public (she reads my blog) but I hope she’s back son so I can hand it to her myself 😉
I made a point of holding doors open for people (but not the Tube doors of course)
I rewarded good customer service with a box of chocolates as a thank you. I was really appreciative of the help I was given by FGW so I bought some Hotel Chocolat chocolates and gave them to Ollie.
I’ve recycled all year so it was easy to recycle all through the holidays, making sure I used wrapping that could be recycled and also by actually recycling it as well as all the other recyclables.
The point of the campaign from Coke though was to get us ALL doing good deeds over the holidays and to think of other people before ourselves. It’s something I totally get behind and I encourage you all to do.
What did you do this year that was a good deed?
