One woman gave her kids money to hand out to homeless people. Another bought coffee for everyone in line at her local shop. And one woman gave out quarters at the laundromat. How are you spreading cheer this holiday season?
MomsLA has teamed with Stonyfield to spread some #sweetitude through the holidays. Stonyfield gave 10 bloggers $50 gift cards to spread some holiday cheer.
The bloggers used their money in very different ways. What was amazing is that everyone either tried to teach their kids a lesson through giving or learned something themselves through the process. Here are the ways they spread the #sweetitude.
- Kim Tracy Prince has been going through a tough time this holiday so she used her card to help bring some cheer to a single mom
- Laura Filipowicz stood at the front of the line at Starbucks and bought everyone coffee until the card ran out.
- Shelby Barone gave $1 bills to her children to pass out to homeless people
- Elise Crane Derby bought groceries for an elderly couple in line at the grocery store
- Yolanda Machado taught her 4-year-old daughter the meaning of Christmas when they bought toys for a toy drive
- Sarah Auerswald took rolls of quarters to the laundromat and paid for people’s laundry
- Laura Clark brought her daughter along to donate toys to a California Highway Patrol toy drive
- Debbie Goldberg bought a Christmas tree for family friends who were going through a tough time
- Adrienne Van Houten donated toys to her granddaughter’s school toy drive
- And last but not least, Jessica Gottlieb took us along as she spread #sweetitude
Here’s more about #sweetitude -
To Stonyfield, sweetitude means: n. – A naturally sweet attitude. An attitude produced without the use of toxic pesticides, hormones, or chemicals. A pleasant disposition brought about by a non-artificial act of sweetness. (Often brought to you by a cup of Stonyfield).
It can also mean the little thoughtful actions that can make a difference – letting someone go before you in that crazy line at the department store, giving up a close parking spot to an elder, sharing baked goods with your coworkers, etc.
