My Expressions of Kindness

This one may surprise you a bit,...
but, stay with me.

And just smile really big!

Botox Cosmetic has started the
to shine the light on all of the small, everyday acts of kindness.

Great idea.

They are trying to start a conversation about all of the good that is happening in the world and use it to help raise money for charity.

They want to empower your kindness and then pay it forward.

By promoting kindness done both by you and for you, Botox Cosmetic will donate 
$25 to your choice of three charities. 
They hope to donate up to $250,000.

The three charities are:

Make it Right 9
Make It Right
This is an organization (founded by Brad Pitt - Oh you heard that didn't you???) dedicated to rebuilding the lower 9th ward in New Orleans and to be a catalyst to build energy-efficient, green homes all across the country.

Dress for Success

This is an international NPO committed to helping disadvataged women take charge of their own lives.
They provide professional attire and a network of support and career development tools to help women thrive.

Children's Action Network
Childrens Action Network

This organization uses the power of the entertainment community to increase awareness about children's issues and make them a top everyday priority. They are currently focused on helping to find more homes for children waiting for adoption and to improve the outcome of those in foster care.
Read more about them here or here.

Here's how it works:

1). Go here and create your profile.
2). At the end of your profile, choose your charity from the three mentioned above.
Done. $25 to a good cause.

There is a question about receiving Botox, but it is NOT NECESSARY to have received or be interested in receiving Botox to participate.

You can then share your profile on Facebook or Twitter
and receive an additional $5 to your donation.

You can also Tweet about it for an additional $1.
