How did you do last week on this list?
I'm happy to say I did 6 out of the first 10! :-)
I will be adding to this list until I have had a chance to do all 101.
Here is the next 10 suggestions.
*11. Hold the door for someone.
*12. Pay a random stranger a compliment.
13. If you have a car, give people rides.
14. Volunteer your time to a suicide hotline
15. ...or volunteer your time as a mentor!
*16. Return your shopping cart to the corral or to the store instead of leaving it loose or propped on a planter in the lot.
17. Offer someone a mint or a piece of gum or candy.
*18. Park your car further from the store and walk the short extra distance. This frees up spots closer for people who may need them more than you, and gives you additional exercise too!
*19. Take a child to the park or pool.
*20. Kiss someone you love. 
 Part One, the first 10 suggestions
"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." Anne Frank
 
February is the month of love, encouragement, commitment. I thought how wonderful it would be to commit to something bigger then myself.
Winter months can be so depressing. The long gray days, cold nights, and bundles of blankets to stay warm.
I have decided to take the 101 Challenge.
 It's my own challenge but feel free to join in with me.
101 easy ways you can make the world a better place.
Just pick one or two each week.
Share with me here and together we can help make our world a better place.
To help get you started here are the first 10
1. Play, genuinely play, with a little kid.
 *2. Tell someone you love them.
3. Donate unused computer time to cancer research (and other types of research) with BOINC
*4. Use your blinker when you turn.
*5. Pick a stretch of highway. Walk along and pick up all the trash you can. (It gets you exercise, money from recycling, and it makes the world a better place!)
*6. Smile at someone. Just smile. Saying “Hello” often brightens a day too.
*7. Round up a few loose coins. Put them in the next charity box you see.
*8. Do something unexpected and artistic that will inspire people and shake them out of the sad mentality of the daily grind.
9. Plant flowers.
10. Search through your cabinets for a few cans of food you’ll probably never use. Donate them.
* are the ones I have done
