BLANKET THE WORLD WITH LOVE {2}

Blanket_Love_Day

Ellie Fun Day’s Second Annual “Blanket the World Day with Love

Remember the movie “Crash?” A small or big action snowballed into something better or worse. I remember one time I woke up on the right side of the bed and everyone that crossed my path that day saw the better side of me. I laughed, smiled, and even made a new friend. Another time, I woke up on the wrong side and I rolled my eyes at people and argued with my husband about who knows what. That led to many people having a horrible day probably (oops, sorry!).

The smallest acts can pay it forward (or backward, but hopefully not) in a HUGE way. You never know! Whatever it may be, a simple act of love and kindness can go a long way!

Join us in this day to show a little lovin’! Tag your pictures and share your story to enter into a LOVEly giveaway by using the hashtags:

Here are some ideas for what you can do with a family, friend, coworker, or even stranger!

1) L-ips (physical and words)

*say something you appreciate about them that you haven’t said in a while
*give a HUG (studies say it prolongs your life)
*vow to say thank you or hello to everyone that comes your day today

2) O-ffering (gifts)

3) V-isit (quality time and acts)

*spend some time with someone you haven’t sat down with for a long time
*bring a friend or family member out on a date

4) E-ncouragement (words)

stars to me

*print out our free printables here, something short and sweet can make someone smile
*tell someone they are doing a great job
*call someone and really ask how they are doing

We should be blanketing our world with love everyday. But we’re planning ONE day where we’ll all do it together! Mark your calendars – JANUARY 18th! What will you be doing for “Blanket the World with Love” Day?

Blanket the World with Love

EllieFunDay’s 1st Annual “Blanket the World with Love”

A friend of ours put $20 in our hand. “You and Elton need to go on a date! Have a good time!” We didn’t have much money, we were saving up for the wedding. And we were so busy, we had hardly any time to see each other. It was a really simple gesture and yet it meant so much. We’ll never forget it.

We’re starting 2013 off by “Blanketing” the World with Love! We know that our world can be a cold, hard place. And yet the simplest gestures done with love and generosity can be life and world changing! Let’s start the new year as agents of change! So many of you have already taken our “Pinky Promise” to be ambassador’s and to “Blanket the World with Love.”

We’d like to ask all of our friends out in the inter web  to join us in “Blanketing the World with Love”. Here are 3 easy ways to do it (and a few suggestions for you)!

“Blanket with a Gift” 

  • donate a blanket to Project Linus
  • pay for someone’s latte behind you
  • gift someone in need a bag of groceries
  • buy a dozen balloons and hand them out to kids in the park

“Blanket with Words”

  • compliment a stranger sincerely
  • write a letter of appreciation to someone that had a meaningful impact in your life
  • send an encouraging email to someone you haven’t talked to in a year
  • tell someone at work/school something they do well
  • write words of encouragement with chalk on your neighbors’ driveways/sidewalk

“Blanket with Fun”

  • invite a friend to have an indoor picnic
  • take a hike, even a short-walk at lunch with a friend
  • Go to a matinee with a friend
