Day 77: Bought a Shamrock

Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone! Although I can't be in Chicago today to see the river dyed green, I am still in the St. Patty's spirit here in California. So to keep in the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, for my random act of kindness, I purchased a shamrock. At face value it doesn't look like much of a random act. If anything it is kind of self serving because I am just trying to bring myself good luck, right? Well, actually, this is a different kind of shamrock I purchased. The one that I bought goes to help the fight against muscular dystrophy. For the past 60+ years, the MDA has worked to bring about awareness and raise funds to try to come up with treatments and cures for over 40 different diseases of the nervous and muscular systems. So if you are out and about today (or want to buy one online) and see someone selling one of these shamrocks at local retailers, maybe try to help the fight against these horrible ailments! Oh, and one other thing....GO HOOSIERS!!!


  1. I'm so glad I found this site! What an amazing idea of sharing little ways of how to make the world a better place. Congrats on a great job!

  2. A shamrock obviously well-worth the purchase.

  3. Haha you picked my soft spot causes these last few days! MDA is my platform, I've been working with them for five years, incredibly group of volunteers and patients!
