Real Neat Blog Award


  
Thanks to Hook, Line, and Inkwell for nominating me for this award and since it is the holidays and I am relaxing I shall be  happy to accept it. 

________

Award Rules:

• Thank the nice person who nominated you and ping back.

• Complete the task your nominator assigns.

• Nominate several bloggers—up to seven, if you like!

• Give them a challenge to complete, and share these rules.

• Include the logo, above, in your acceptance post.

The Task:

Complete one act of kindness (ie. donate something to the homeless or someone in need; help someone carry groceries; shovel a walk way for some one; volunteer somewhere; etc…) and write a post about the experience.

So, I chose to go with a monetary donation this time of year and made an extra donation to Operation Christmas Child from the Sanaritan’s Purse foundation. This charity has a special place in my heart as it provides presents to children in areas of the world where children hardly have the basics for daily life, never mind a Christmas present. For Operation Christmas child you can fill a box for a child of a certain age group and fill your box with school supplies, hard candies, a small stuffed toy or other kind of toy, hair accessories, etc. Operation child will deliver your box to a child in need. They also appreciate monetary donations and fill boxes themselves as well as use the money to support the charity. If you would like to donate to Operation Christmas child or any Samaritan’s purse cause you can go to the website here. Also, you can read about Samaritan’s Purse’s projects to help people in need. 

I nominate the following people to receive this award. You do not have to participate but you can if you like.

1. Stories and Scribblings

2. Passion Through Poetry

3. Conscience Creates Reality

4. Strange Lander 2015

5. Steps Times Two

You are all amazing bloggers who I have had the privilege to read and admire your writing. You make me think and make me laugh. You make me consider things in a different view point then  I usually perceive the world. So thank you so much.

I like Hook, Line, and Inkwells idea of performing an act of kindness, especially at this time of year. So your challenge should you accept is to perform one act of kindness and then write about it when you accept this award.

  1. Congrats on your award! Thank you so much for nominating me! I will think on doing an act of kindness and writing about it, we are going away for a few days so it may not be right away! I’ll only be reading and posting sparingly in the next few days 💝

  3. Congratulations, Amanda! I really like your writing, and am deeply honored and pleased that you thought of me as one of the recipients of this award (StrangeLander2015).
    I hope you don’t mind that I will not follow up on this award, happy though I am that you thought of me. I have not really followed up on any WordPress awards mentions so far. I guess mine an award-free site, although I didn’t really set out to be that way.
