easy ways to help others

I love the holiday season and I try to celebrate it with little acts of kindness.

They don't have to be anything crazy, in fact I think they are almost better when they make someone's life better in a simple way, like adding some money to a meter (that just ran out of money) so that they don't get a parking ticket. Something really easy to do, but that reminds others that you care and wish them well!

paying it forward

When we were up in Pacific Grove there were meters everywhere.

I made it my mission (with Pete's help) to look for expired meters and then we added money to buy them some time. We felt like we were on a secret mission to spread some cheer! I love getting little surprises like this so I hope it warmed other's hearts too!

I came prepared with lots of quarters, sticky notes and #BlueSkiesBlue BIC Mark-It™ to spread some #BICMerryMarking cheer!

I pre-filled some notes and started filling meters with coins.

It was so much fun! We dropped in coins, added a note and kept on going until we made sure the whole block was good to go!You can create your own act of kindness with BIC Mark-It™permanent markers.

  1. I love when people do this, but not to be a stick-in-the-mud, did you realize most cities have ordinances that make doing this illegal?

  2. I think that was very sweet to fill up a meeter so the person dose not get a ticket. I love the blue on blue with the blue bic and it’s on the blue post it note. Usually the two colors don’t show up well together but bic makes lot’s of pretty colors for the markers.

  3. I love BIC pens and use them often for craft projects. I am glad to see I am not the only one that will throw doe change in a parking meter!

  4. This is super cute idea. Pay it forward and just do something nice. We cannot even do it here because we don’t really have meters anymore just machines and little slips. 🙁

  5. This is an awesome act of kindness indeed. To just write an note to say “Happy Holidays.” would even make someones day. Thanks for sharing.

  6. What an amazing idea! Great work to help people in this holiday season! Sometimes these little things makes big difference. I love random acts of kindness, and am definitely going to do this.

  7. What a sweet thing to do. I feel like I always need a good market sometimes when I’m out and I never have one in my car or in my purse. Maybe I’ll buy a pack of these for my car and put a few in my purse, too.

  8. I love Bic markers, they work just as good or better than sharpies! That blue is really pretty 🙂

  9. I love, love, love this. Hubs and I don’t have a lot to give, but every year we find ways to do random acts of kindness and pay it forward type things. Over the years we’ve done so many and I often think about them and wonder what they thought about what they did, how it changed their day, and if they helped out someone else.
