The kind-hearted lady over at Thistles and Maple Leaves has a great little thing going on. It's called The Helping Hands Project.
It's a self-assigned award designed to get the word out and encourage or inspire others to do a good deed. It's Thistle's personal challenge to everyone out there to do a good deed so they can get the badge. It doesn't have to be huge. It doesn't have to be costly. The point is to just GIVE BACK. And if you give back (and she gives a list of great examples at the site) you can nab a little badge for yourself and hopefully get someone else to do the same.
Go on over to the Project's web page and post a story about how you've given back, how you've got helping hands!
