There are a million things that I suck at. Driving games. Sewing on buttons. Normal conversations with strangers.
Push ups. Hoo boy, do I suck at push-ups.
Which is exactly why I'm going to try and do 100 of them in a row this November. It's a bad idea at best. Epically bad. So bad it may even result in the loss of use of my arms for a few days during one of the busiest parts of the year.
WHAT COULD GO WRONG.
Now, I could carry out this bad idea for my own benefit, but why be selfish when I can do a deeply absurd thing in the name of fighting childhood hunger?
That's why I'm participating in Endure 4 Kindness this year. I might suck at push-ups, but Random Acts is damn good at raising money and then partnering locally to provide real, concrete help to people who need it.
My Plan: document my training journey, from square one to eventual success and/or untimely demise.
My Ask: throw money at me on Crowdrise while I do that. It doesn't even need to be a single, big donation. $5 here and there as I go doesn't just add to the total: it'll help me keep pushing toward the goal.
Help me do something ridiculous. Help Random Acts feed some kids. Enjoy the warm feeling of torturing some guy for the greater good without actually committing a human rights violation.
100 Push-ups is a Bad Idea, but it's for a great cause, and I hope you'll help us.
Every year, supporters around the world come together to participate in E4K, endure for Kindness, stretching themselves to their personal limits, and raising funds for Random Acts while promoting a message of kindness. Random Acts then uses the funds to do, well, you know what we are about – Conquering the world, one Random Act of Kindness at a time. Acts fueled by E4K span the globe. No act is too big or too small— and your E4K support is what makes it happen. Your generosity will empower us to create another year of life-changing acts of kindness. This year E4K will also help us fight childhood hunger. We will be combating childhood hunger in some of the poorest counties in all 50 US States, and in many regions across the globe. E4K is about pushing yourself to do your personal best. Run marathons, do 5K’s, knit massive quantities of blankets for the homeless, climb mountains, or host community-wide doodle-thons. The choice is yours. Keep in mind Kindness is a marathon, not a sprint. Stretch yourself to do the most that you can in the time that you have, and show others that spreading kindness is worth the effort. This year Endure 4 Kindness will be held across 4 days from November 22 to November 25th. Visit our site to find out other ways that you can participate.
