Thursday Things: #43, Giving the Gift of Time (Feeding the Meters)

For this week's Thursday Things, we tackled #43 on our list.  Putting a quarter into all the parking meters in the major shopping area of Plymouth, NH was a fun and inexpensive task. 

The girls enjoyed this activity.  They got a kick out of the befuddled looks they received from folks who didn't realize what we were doing, and they felt good about being able to do something simple and nice for complete strangers.

The girls, two rolls of quarters, and...parking meters!

Alex buys some time for a shopper.

Sage creates good karma.

Last meters!

We spent a grand total of $15.00 and it was worth every quarter.  I now want to commit random acts of kindness on a regular basis.  It's good for the soul.

What a sweet idea! I recently saw this:
Everybody talks about leaving a better planet for the children.

Why shouldn't we try to leave better children to the planet?
Thank you for growing better children - for the planet, and for the people who live on it.
