ONE SIMPLE ACT MOVEMENT

Join the Sidewalk Talk team and become a part of the ONE SIMPLE ACT MOVEMENT!!! Post simple acts of kindness done by or to you here, on the facebook fan page or on the Sidewalk Talk page.

ONE SIMPLE ACT MOVEMENT:

The One Simple Act Movement will be the theme of the entire month of April. Listeners will be challenged to take the One Simple Act Challenge and to join the Movement.

  • We can change the community around us by stepping outside our comfort zones and performing daily, intentional, simple acts of kindness. I am not talking about big things life giving your entire life savings to charity, or developing an entire informal settlement! I’m talking about small, simple, random acts. Things like…
    • Tipping your waitron or petrol attendant with fifty Rand.
    • Randomly baking muffins for your neighbor.
    • Sticking up for the kid at school who always gets picked on.
    • Buying coffee for the person behind you in the line at the coffee shop.
    • Writing an encouraging note, totally out of the blue, to a friend, colleague, or family member.
    • Inviting a homeless person to eat a meal with you.
    • Any random, simple act for another person, with no strings attached and no ulterior motives.
  • We will link up with four different youth groups who are serving as agents of change in their communities, and hear about how they have taken up the One Simple Act Challenge.
  • We will also encourage the listeners who have taken the challenge to phone in and share about their experience of being a part of the One Simple Act Movement.
