Generosity Week: Give and Win $100 from The Peaceful Mom! 

It’s January, which means not so nice weather, lots of indoor time and the after-the-holidays doldrums. To counteract the grayness of January our family will be focusing on generosity this week in big and small ways. A few of the things we will be doing are making some treats for friends, giving away a $20 gift card to a stranger and doing random acts of kindness at home and in our neighborhood.

If you would like to participate with us this week, I am also hosting a giveaway here on the blog! I will be giving away a $100 Visa gift card to one of my readers, along with a $50 Walmart gift card for the winner to give to someone else!

    How inspiring is this post! Thanks for doing this! I don’t have much to give in the ways of money- with bills and tuition for my husband’s schooling, we are on a tight budget. I do love to give what I can!!
    This week I have already given a neighbor (who has great trouble breathing and thus walking up the dozen or so steps to her house) a helping hand. She parked across the street and have 2 bags and a box to carry up. I immediately dropped my packages in the house and helped her across the street and up the stairs to hers.
    I also gave my work team a huge bag of Hershey’s kisses to share as we endured an ALL day meeting yesterday. They loved the treat and everyone stayed awake in our meetings!

  56. Lisa H. says

    First to note: I liked and shared your blog on Facebook. Secondly, thank you for being such a positive influence in our society. It’s people like you that spread smiles just through kindness. It’s contagious. My “giving back” moment happened during Christmas week. I met a single mother of six children ages 6-19. I inquired about her Christmas plans. They had none, and hadn’t had a Christmas for 3 years due to “being poor,” as she stated. She still had a good attitude and stated “We have each other and that’s all that matters.” We are blessed with lots of family and our kids have more than enough. I gave her kids a carload of toys including a Wii. since we have Xbox also. They ended up having a good Christmas. God bless all that you do!

  57. angie mccort says

    We are big “freecyclers” in our house so we give regularly… I just gave away and winter coat that my son has outgrown and several bags of clothes that my daughter out grew. I am trying to get rid of 7 things this week… trying to live less cluttered.

    The grocery store we shop at only accepts debit, check, or cash. No credit. Last week when I went the girl in front of me got to the register and found this out. She had no other way to pay for the $15 worth of food and walked out with her young daughter. I paid for the food while the cashier took the basket out to her. At least they’ll have full stomaches tonight.

    I followed you on Pinterest and pinned this post! 😀

    I followed you on Twitter and retweeted this post! 😀

    Today I was driving to my Bountiful Baskets Co-Op site (early, since I volunteer), and there was a good foot of snow on the ground, with more coming down. Here in Utah it gets pretty nasty sometimes. Anyway, I saw an elderly woman walking toward the train station, hurrying along like she might have been late. I had to pull a u-turn, since she was going the opposite direction I was, but I stopped and gave her a ride the rest of the way. I don’t have many material things, but anytime I can give someone a hand, I will.

  87. Sarah says

    I repinned on Pinterest(:

    I had a professor last semester who is a single dad with twin daughters nine years old. He commented on how they never get out of town, and there isn’t much to do around here, so I found some old cut out paper dolls while I was home, and I brought them to town when I returned from break. We spent yesterday playing with the paper dolls and baking sugar cookies so he could have some time to grade papers and then go out to dinner with a colleague. The girls and I then made up plates of the cookies and delivered a couple dozen to the soup kitchen in town and took the rest to the dining hall workers this afternoon. It was so much fun!

  88. Sarah says

    I already liked you on Facebook, so I shared this post.

    I’m moving soon, and I realized I could live off of much less clothing than I own and don’t have space for in the move, so I spent a bit of today and will finish tomorrow loading an SUV full of clothing, some new, to donate to the Koffeehouse, the soup kitchen in my hometown, because they will give it out to people who really need it instead of the clothes being resold in a thrift shop.

  89. Sarah says

    Just retweeted your post(:

    I’ve posted two things I’ve done so far, so I think instead of reaching to the past for a post, I’ll think of something new to do. I looked through some comments and have been inspired to more good deeds.

    We have had twelve inches of snow recently in town, and the volunteer group who usually goes to homes of elder people is no longer together. I’m going to convince my boyfriend to go shovel some sidewalks with me tomorrow afternoon and make delicious hot-chocolate coffee with marshmallows for him after(:

    I lost my job last week. I am completely devastated. A friend suggested your website to help me save since my income has stopped. My husband is a police officer and I worked full-time in the mental health field. We live on a 2 family income. I have two wonderful children. The hardest part is to look my children in the eye and tell them no because mommy lost her job. Even though I did nothing wrong to lose my job I feel like a failure. I have to start cutting costs at home. Your website has been very helpful. A 100.00 would be so helpful at this time. I have agreed to watch a friend’s little girl for free this week because I know how expensive child-care can be. I am glad to pay it forward. Thank you.

      I am so sorry that you lost your job Jamie. I pray that you will be able to quickly find something else. Good for you for giving to someone else in spite of your circumstances.

    I still am learning this social media thing. I don’t know how to copy the link to my Pin, but I did it! I follow you on Pinterest & have “Like”(d) you on Facebook & re-posted and Pinned this info. I’m a Fibromyalgia disabled wife & part-time stepmom. I have learned to make jewelry and am giving a special custom leather-wrapped bracelet to my dentist’s young, single mom asst (in her fav color) at my appt this Wed, that I made as a treat for no particular reason. I also just completed custom jewelry sets for 2 of my friend’s daughters for their upcoming winter formal, matching each of their dresses. Thank you for always helping those of us who depend so much on living virtually online to connect with others!

    Thank you so much for encouraging us to give generously. It is, honestly, something I struggle with. Our budget seems so small. You reminded me that I have been given SO MUCH, though! Over the past several days, I’ve kept my eyes and my heart open for opportunities to give generously. A few days ago, in a store, I overheard a woman who seemed extremely stressed. I didn’t have anything tangible to “give” her, so I prayed with her right there in the checkout at Walgreens! The LORD used you, and your blog to encourage me, and I hope that He used me to encourage her! Thank you, Kimberlee!!!!

      Thank you for sharing that story Beth. There have been plenty of times that we did not have money to give, but that’s not always what people need, is it? :)

    I am a new facebook fan. I gave a table and chairs that I wasn’t using to family who lost their home in a fire on New Year’s Day. I followed you on twitter and retweeted. I followed you on pinterest, too.
