The Christmas Project: Part 1

A few weeks ago I was catching up on some of my favorite blogs, and came across the notion of The Birthday Project. Needless to say, the idea is right up my alley.

Except my birthday isn't until June. And I don't want to wait that long to start the Project. 

So I'm transforming it into The Christmas Project. I'll keep the premise the same: Doing good deeds for others. However, I'll change the number a bit - since Christmas is on the 25th, I'll do 25 good deeds in the month of December. 

Here are some of the ideas I already have planned: 
  1. Volunteer for a new task at the Humane Society
  2. Cookies for the ladies at our local gas station (John is a frequent flyer)
  3. $100 worth of non-perishable food items for a local shelter
  4. Sent thank you notes to two of my high school teachers
  5. Left some dog treats and a few tennis balls at the dog park
  6. Cookies to our police department
  7. Cookies to our fire department
  8. Cookies to our city workers at the recycling and composting centers (we have a lot of quality time together)
  9. Went to the local library and put $1 bills and a note in some of my favorite novels (especially the ones that I teach in English 11). 
  10. Put quarters in the cart chains at Aldi's (there have been countless times where I have had to carry armloads of groceries to the checkout because I didn't have a quarter and no one wanted was able to share one with me.)
  11. Took some board games to the Spinal Rehabilitation floor at the hospital where my brother recovered from his motocross accident. 
...and I still have a few weeks to finish the list of 25 good deeds. Are there any you think I should add?
