This week, the #LightTheWorld campaign theme is Light Your Community, and I've noticed many examples of ways to shine; here are several:
1. Young brothers organized and manned a cocoa and cookies stand, with proceeds going to purchase teddy bears for hospitals, clinics, and shelters.
2. The local grocery store had a "grab a bag" display, where shoppers could buy a bag of food to donate to a food pantry.
3. A class of 11-year-olds quickly responded, "But you are great at other things, like gymnastics," when a fellow classmate expressed frustration that she was not good at puzzles.
4. During a snowstorm, neighbors quickly shoveled sidewalks and driveways up and down the street, without stopping at their own property lines.
A little kindness goes a long way to light a community; how does your world shine?
