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!

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.
