Pay It Forward Friday: Having a idea and making it

Inspired by my $100 Story, I decided that this year Madame Deals’ mission is to unite people through good deeds and giveaways.

Please read all of my Pay It Forward Friday posts! Plus, check out this article written by my fans 100 things you can do to help others for FREE!

I had an idea to give back. It is actually a really easy thing to do. I am a blogger and I have a platform. I have people that contact me to represent their brand. I decided this week I was going to get items for the Ronald Mcdonald House. I will share what I received once it gets delivered to my house. I would like to say I hope the items I receive will make others happy during a hard time of their life.

If you own a company and would like me to review a product and give a product to the Ronald Mcdonald House I will waive my review fee to pay it forward! You can contact me with your donations at [email protected] subject Ron Mcdonald House

Pay It Forward Friday: Lottery ticket drops

I think in our life we have the power to make dreams come true. We can do it by doing something good for someone else. You never know how a good deed can change a course in someone’s life. I am going to place envelops on cars with a lottery ticket in each. I hope they win money or at the very least take a moment to dream and imagine and understand that someone who doesn’t even know them wishes them happiness.

Pay It Forward Friday: fairy couponing

When I went to Blissdom I was given coupons for free products. I am going to do some fairy couponing tomorrow. I hope to make someone’s day with a free jar of jelly or so free yogurt. It should be fun. You never know the difference you can make one good deed deserves another? Right? I hope you have a wonderful Pay it Forward Friday. I also hope you enter to win our contest to win coupons for you and a friend.

 

 

Ask A Volunteer

Vicki lives in Jacksonville, FL and is the single Mom of a 12 year old daughter and a 16 year old son. She is a make up artist/stylist and makes costumes for dancers, the theater and pageants, and is an avid volunteer. Her daughter is a Regional winner (and $1000 scholarship recipient) in the Kohl’s Kids Who Care competition and her son is State winner for Subway High School Heroes. Both kids each average about 1000 volunteer hours per year. As a family they do a lot of community service and the kids have both taken that and gone off on their own creating Not For Profit organizations and taking on projects of their own.

Sydney J. Harris said “If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem …” over the years, this message has stuck with me. I believe everyone has it in them to help, many just have no idea where to start.

When I was 15 years old I picked up the phone and called a grocery store and asked them to donate a sheet cake for a Valentine’s Day party my younger sisters (9 and 12)) and I wanted to have on the children’s ward at the hospital. We got a drugstore to give us some candy and McDonald’s provided us with that big orange cooler filled with their famous drink. We had all of our friends over and made tons of cards.

On Valentine’s Day our Mom drove us to pick everything up and then to the hospital. The kids who were able to participate had a ball and for the ones who couldn’t, we delivered things to their rooms. As an afterthought we had thrown in the construction paper and crayons and such and let the kids make cards for their friends and family. They had a BALL.

As much as they enjoyed it, we got ten times more from it. For weeks after we would smile and wink at each other and know that one of us was having a warm fuzzy moment. Knowing we had, for just a little while, made these kids forget about being sick; helped them think about something other than shots and surgeries and what tomorrow might bring.

Making a difference doesn’t have to be something huge. People don’t start out by building schools in Africa or raising a million dollars for cancer research. It starts small… with one person, one hour, one day.
