On Saturday we had a successful kick-off to our Esther Day campaign, Random Acts of Kindness.  We met in Boston Common to ‘share the happy’ by handing out flowers and chalk.  Overall we had a lot of fun talking to people and making them smile.  Hopefully we inspired people to pay it forward.
While some people were really excited to accept a flower, there were quite a few people who were skeptical of us.  People would speed up, avert their eyes, say no before we even had a chance to ask if they’d like a flower or explain that they were free.  It was these reactions that made the others extra special.There were plenty of people who were really excited to receive a flower, and we found that kids were super happy to get a free piece of chalk.  We met people who loved flowers, people who wanted to pay it forward, and people who thought handing out flowers in the Common was ‘like the coolest idea ever’.When we gave out a lot of chalk, as is inevitable, there were a lot of broken pieces.  We used them to write words of encouragement around the sidewalks.  It was nice to see people pause, read the words we had written, and react.  Walking around we liked seeing what kids had drawn with the chalk we gave them and overhearing people tell others about receiving flowers.  It has also been really nice to see our words pop up on social media by people who just stumbled upon them.  To know that we have indeed made a difference in someone’s day has been totally awesome.If you have any pictures of flowers or our chalk drawings we’d love to see them.  The best way to make sure they get to us is to use the #nshpaestherday
We will continue doing random acts of kindness over the next month. Keep an eye out for more updates and events!
If you have your own story of a random act of kindness we want to hear about that.  Use the same hashtag as above and lets share the happy!

Hey guys! So I don’t usually make these kinda posts, but I’m asking you to hear me out here.
As some of you who are Nerdfighters know, Esther Day is coming up soon! The Irish Nerdfighters, a social circle mainly on Facebook (and most of our gatherings are in Dublin) are trying to set up a project, hopefully Random Acts Of Kindness. But first, we need more members - so if any of you are interested in an Irish Nerdfighters project for Esther Day, give this a reblog and maybe drop a message in my ask? The group is open to anyone on Facebook if you’re not already apart of it, and if one of you could post ” I saw this on Tumblr” we can add you to the group for the project.
Remember, we only have a week, and we need as many people as possible! Any ideas or suggestions are very welcome.
Thank you, and DFTBA!

Here’s the facebook group!
