In my initial post for this year's project, I made an offer to extend my "44 good days" by one day for each donation to the Triangle Autism 5k, but after a little thought, I decided to put an upper limit on that offer, just to be safe. As much as I love doing this, I just can't do it forever. I made an offhand comment that if it went over 60 days, I might have to recruit some volunteers to continue in my place.
Well, one of my good friends just offered to do an extra day even if I don't go over the limit... and at that moment, a little ping went off in my brain: Why didn't I think of that before?
People like following along as I do this each year, but not everybody can chip in with donations. Believe me, I understand. But wouldn't it be fun to invite people to participate in some other way? Wouldn't it be cool to see what kind of great things other people might come up with?
So here's the deal: If you want to do some randomly kind or charitable act for one day, let me know. You can repeat an idea you've seen here, find one someone else has done, or come up with your own -- whatever you feel inspired to do.
Then let me know about it, and I'll mention it here on the blog. Or if you want, you can write a guest post on here telling the rest of us about it.
I'm not too worried about the timing. It's too much effort to start assigning dates on the calendar to who can do what when. That's way too formal and sounds like a coordination nightmare. So if you're interested, just get in touch with me. Let me know what you did (or are planning to do) and when. Let me know if you want to do a guest post or just have me mention it, and whether you want to do it anonymously or not. And for the record, anyone is welcome to participate, even if you have no idea who I am (though of course I reserve the right to not post anything that doesn't fit in with the spirit of this project).
I'll include a separate post for each of these Special Edition Good Days and we'll see how far past 44 we can go.
So who's in?
