Paying it Forward

Recently, both Sarah and Lydia blogged about a card they received in the mail.  Our sorority sister Becky sent the following message to each of them:
I have donated 2 nights of shelter in your name. I am doing this because I’m really tired of all of the negativity in the world. Everywhere you turn people are fighting over politics, religion, birth control, immigration, the economy and on and on. People behave in rude and disrespectful manners towards one another. 
Since I cannot force anyone else to change, I’m going to focus on trying to become a more positive force in this world. I’ve chosen 10 women (because we get shit done) to receive these cards. 
This is a “pay it forward” kind of deal. All I ask is that you do something nice and unexpected for someone else. I know I’m preaching to the choir, but I think you will actually participate in this.
I love the idea of "ten women who get shit done."  If you've ever worked on a Junior League or sorority committee, you know that ten women dedicated to getting shit done can transform an empty warehouse into a ten thousand dollar fundraiser, lobby the legislature to effect long-term change, or build a house in a day.  It can be an amazing sight to behold.

Here at HerKentucky, we ask that each of our readers consider themselves "tagged" by Becky's card.  Go out and do something today.  Be a positive force.  Tell us about it, if you like. And, above all, keep the chain going.  Ask others to do something wonderful today as well. And, just maybe, we can watch the world change for the better.

In case you're short on ideas, we've put together a list of shelters, missions and food banks that could always use your help:
