Spreading Some Good News!

So, why a blog?  It's true, we already have a website.
 This blog, however, is on a mission. Read on and become part of our story.

  We all know how dismal the news can be. We're bombarded daily with negative images of political unrest, the fallout of a poor economy, acts of violence and abuse... the list goes on.

  What we want to hear about are acts of kindness that occur everywhere with everyday people. If you know someone who devotes time in one way or another to enriching the lives of others, or if you have a story of a random act of kindness, tell us here on the blog.   Become a follower and tell us their story in the comments section or via e-mail listed on the side bar. Every week we will choose one of these stories with your help and highlight it in a blog post. The subject of the chosen story will receive a large assortment of our gelatos and sorbettos, free, as a reward for their kindness.

It gets even better - Once we reach 500 followers, all 500 will be entered to win a grand prize of two premium Patriots tickets to the game of your choice for the 2011 season, as well as a large box of gelato and sorbetto... and there are plans for so much more.   So, let's hear it - together we can spread some good news and bring a few more smiles to the world.  

 (Important:  If your story is chosen for a post - 
Make sure you have permission from the person who you are nominating -
we can leave out last names and specific locations for their privacy protection) 

From our heart to yours -

  1. What a wonderful concept for a blog. This is going to be so much fun and so inspirational, I just know it!

  2. What a great idea. It's usually the ordinary people who do extraordinary things everyday with out so much as a thank you. This is a good vehicle to showcase their acts of kindness that otherwise might go unnoticed.

  3. Love this idea and there is still good news out there to report! Companies with a concience...
    what a refreshing idea, just like your gelatos!

  4. I love this idea, too...and I'm so proud of you guys for doing this! Now, I need to put on my thinking cap! ♥♥♥

  5. I'm lovin this idea, have often thought of a all good news station, but leave it to you to act on it. Great. I learned of this from Karen, This Old House, a good news blog in itself.
