26 Random Acts: Team Assignments

by Jen on January 6, 2013

Again, thank you so much for the enthusiastic response to the 26 Acts of Kindness Project. I have since learned more about the movement and it started with Ann Curry. People across the country are going out and performing 26 random acts of kindness in honor of the 26 lives lost in Newtown, Connecticut. Read more about it here. I was really excited to hear that some of my friends and readers were already doing the 26 acts on their own. And I’m SO excited to announce that we have FIVE teams of 26 completing random acts of kindness.

Here is how this is going to work…

1. You will be assigned to a team of 26. Within that team you will be assigned a number, 1-26. That is your act of kindness to perform.

2. Go out and perform your act. It can be anything you want to do! For inspiration check out Facebook or search the hash tag #26acts on Twitter. You can leave your own note or use the following template:

*For the record, I am not trying to take any attention away from Ann Curry who created this but I thought it would be cool if people could go online and read about the things that we are doing as a collective group.

3. Document your act. You can take a picture or just share the story. Please e-mail peanutbutterrunner (at) gmail (dot) com with the following:
– Your team number (put in subject line)
– Your act number (put in subject line)
– A summary about what you did for your act (a photo if you have it but not required)

You have two weeks to complete your acts. E-mails due back to me by January 21. I would love for you to share what you’re doing via social media (twitter, facebook, intstagram…whatever!). Use the hashtag #pbr26acts so we can follow each other!

4. I will dedicate a unique post to each team’s 26 random acts. My goal will be to have them all posted by the end of January.

And here are your teams. There are quite a few of you with the same first name so if you need clarification about what team you are on, please e-mail me and I’ll reference e-mail addresses to confirm. Just a note, I went straight down the list of comments (for the most part) to assign the teams. There are a 2 more spots in team 5 if anyone wants to join last minute.  Updated…due to demand I have started team 6. Let me know if you want to be added to that team!
