And like a good champion of cheer, Janet has accepted GOOD's Creative Microphilanthropy Challenge. She has pledged to donate $1 for each act of goodwill that we tell her we accomplished. See what she did there? Rather than just give $30 to a charity (which is totally noble in istelf—don't get me wrong!), she's giving $30 and 30 acts of kindness to the world! It's like fancy math. She's making the goodwill multiply! Plus, we get to be her goodwill elves! Where are my pointy, curly-toed shoes . . .
When I read Janet's post a couple days ago, I knew I wanted to do something simple, quick, and inspired by the "spirit of the season". I considered Color Me Katie's Tiny Messages, which are definitely simple + quick, so now I just needed something Christmassy. (Adding "y" to a noun magically makes it an adjective. Try it!) And what's more Christmassy than Christmas music? If you answered, "Nothing. Nothing is more Christmassy than Christmas music, Sarah," you are correct. So I burned a CD, wrote a little note to a stranger, and left both in a shopping cart at Trader Joe's*.

Don't you want to join me in spreading cheer as a member of Janet's Elfin' Crew? Grab your pointy, curly-toed shoes and don't forget to tell her about your Act of Goodwill! And tell me if you tell her, too (please + thank you!).
*Thank you, Janet, for turning my completely selfish Candy Cane Joe-Joe's run into a more meaningful endeavor. ;]
