As a Verizon #MoreChicago Lifestyle Blogger I’m a member of a pretty cool
team of influencers. I have received a a device (with a line of service) from Verizon. No additional compensation was provided nor did I promise positive feedback. All opinions are my own.
Happy November and Happy 1 Year Anniversary of my time partnering with Verizon Wireless! Since November is the month to give THANKS (and I have lots to be thankful for) and as a perfect lead-in for the holiday season, my family loves to participate in Random Acts of Kindness and I thought, what better way to spread the love than through the devices that we spend so much of our time with?
Sharing a little technological love is simple and I’ve put together a few ideas in case you’d like to join us for a month of #RAVK (Random Acts of Verizon Kindess). Verizon gives some great ideas to get you started. Here are a few more:
Whether you send someone a Starbucks gift card or buy coffee for the person behind you, your phone can easily start a chain of Pay It Forwards. Another great idea? Take a Starbucks e-gift card and put it on your Instagram account, encouraging your family, friends, and followers to treat themselves, leaving the running balance in the comments below. This is one of my favorites!
Have a friend that could use a pick-me-up? Send a sweet little text message just to let them know you’re thinking of them. Connect with a friend that you haven’t texted in a while and start a conversation that’s sure to make them smile.
Head to the Arbor Day Foundation and donate a tree in someone’s honor or name.
Social Good Apps.
Check out these great social apps that you can download on your phone that can make a long-lasting impact.
Give to the Red Cross.
Text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, which helps people affected by disasters such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wildfires and tornadoes.
Make it a point to comment on every selfie you see posted this week. Someone just might need that little boost of confidence.
Want to join in the giving back fun? Use your technology for good this month and share using the hashtags #VZWBuzz and #RAVK and we will feature some of these awesome acts of kindness in our next technology blog post!
