As I was perusing the intricacy that is Steemit, I came across a truly impressive post that was giving away all the steem dollars generated by the post. @arsenal49 wanted to give back to the community in thanks for his past successes. I thought that this was such a great idea that I decided to continue the trend!
Instead of focusing on what someone can reproduce through art or words or science, the focus of this challenge is on the kindness and love of the community around us. Every individual has their own strengths and there are contests out there to showcase those, but ALL OF US can give love to another.
So, for this Kindness Giveaway we'll be playing “Phone a Friend”.
Take the time to call an old friend, family member or loved one of any kind. Tell them that you love them and why. It doesn’t have to be anything sappy or full of tears, just let them know what they mean to you and that you are thankful that they are in your life.
What we would really love to see is users going out into the world and performing these acts of kindness for others and then reporting back to us here. It doesn't matter whether you do this for another person in the real world or online, here in Steemit or elsewhere on the web or through the telephone. Just get in touch with someone that means something to you. We are trying to promote love and the interactivity of our fellow Steemit users.
All steem generated by this post will be distributed between the entrants. That's right! EVERYONE who submits to this post will receive a payout!
Your entry can be either a picture or written, but we want to hear what happened and how this impacted those involved. Please try to explain your picture with at least a few sentences of context. Entries in all languages are welcome!
Sorry that this one is only in English, we will do better next time! If you are interested in translating for the Challenge let me know, we can work out some sort of payment for services rendered.
Here are the "rules" to follow:
1. Resteem and upvote this post.
We are trying to reach as many of our fellow Steemit users as possible and to spread the love of the Steemit community, so resteeming this post is a must. We have to get it out there. Also, the payout for the entrants is generated by this post, so the more we can raise, the more we can give!
2. Create your post and then reply below with the link so that everyone can easily read your stories!
And you can make a bit extra as well. ;)
3. The idea is to promote the community of Steemit to it's new users, therefore we will only be splitting the payout between those entrants who are 50 and below.
If you are higher and would still like to post your story, WE WOULD LOVE TO READ IT. We are simply trying to keep the Steemit community thriving through the interactivity of it's new members. If this contest generates a massive amount of payout, then it will be distributed it to all entrants and really share the love!
The last Challenge raised enough liquid sbd to payout all the entrants, but the payouts were…low. This is a new challenge so let’s see if we can’t spread the Challenge a bit more this time. Many thanks to all those who resteemed and upvoted the Challenge, many of which were ineligible but wanted to help anyway. Thank you!
So, go out and be nice to others! We want to hear about it!
Many thanks to @arsenal49 whose original posts are the inspiration behind this one.
Also, @looftee presented the original "What Does Steemit Mean to Mean?" question, prompting Steemit users to evaluate the other reasons that they are on Steemit, other than money. You should check out his stuff too.
