As of September 2013 we are no longer a 501(c)3. This endeavor needed and deserved more time, love and funds than I was able to give to it. However, we had a GREAT response during our 3 years and gifted either an iPad, iTouch or iPhone to about 20 recipients who were in need!
This website and blog will stay live and we will continue to spread the Different iz Good message. In fact, I foresee a Different iz Good book in the not so distant future. I will be asking for your stories as the book idea comes together. Be sure to subscribe to my personal blog if you are interested in submitting your Different iz Good story as that is where I will post when ready. You can choose to subscribe via your email or a reader.
I am still personally paying the wonderful accounting firm that handled the 501(c)3 IRS paperwork/book for the organization. The remaining balance is $235.00. If you are interested in helping with that you can donate here or continue to send in cell phones. Once the accounting firm bill is paid in full I will disable the donate buttons on this site.
We also have just a few Different iz Good t shirts remaining. If you would like one, comment here and we will be in touch.
Thank you to everyone for your support, love, kindness, and donations during our 3 or so years. We couldn’t have accomplished all that we did without YOU!!
“A SIMPLE Kind Gesture Can Mean The WORLD To The ONE You Share It With …” –Camilla Downs
This is Gorgeous George in Manchester England. George and his Mum, Cheryl, were out buying a card. Cheryl was having one of those days. The clerks saw how HAPPY a blue balloon made George and kindly gave it to him. This kindness spread to Cheryl and uplifted her spirits.
Simple acts of kindness have a ripple effect like that of a rock thrown in water …. it spreads and then eventually comes back to you ….
Wednesday night an eWomenNetwork friend bought me a box of Dorinda’s chocolates. Yesterday I took some of that chocolate with me to pick up Thomas from school and shared with a friend. She texted me afterwards and said, “Thank You.” She said she had just experienced a heartache the size of Texas and my kind gesture is EXACTLY what she needed.
Spread some SIMPLE KINDNESS today … it truly does ripple in unexpected and magical ways!!! -Camilla
