“They day I shared the chocolates at work the atmosphere at work was very energetic (mind you here chocolates are expensive). People were excited and there was positive energy all around.”

“I liked the challenges that involved creative thinking. We have a very tight income so just during stuff to give away wasn’t really an option”

“All the contributors were excellent. I enjoyed their diversity.”

“It was the best Lent ever! I was focused on my faith and preparation for Easter in a way I never have been before. I am incredibly grateful to everyone behind the creation of the 40acts emails.”

“My take away was that small acts of kindness matter. It made me think of doing this not just with chocolates, but other things as well to lift up people’s spirits.”

“For me the greatest part of this initiative was feeling that each of the wonderful generous deeds that the 40 acts encouraged were like ripples on a pond; each deed benefited and impacted on many people”

“It just made me aware to help others where I could. I was asking myself: ‘What would Jesus want me to do?”


We’re so grateful to have been a part of your generosity stories. We can’t wait to hear what happens next year!
