Just last week I came across an truly impressive post by @arsenal49 that was giving away all the steem dollars generated by his post. He wanted to give back to the community in thanks for his past successes. I thought that this was such a great idea that I contacted him to see if we could team up to continue the trend! He has now done several steem giveaways which focus on the generosity and reciprocity of the Steemit Community. This giveaway contest will be the same.
Through conversations on his posts we have mutually decided that instead of focusing on what someone can reproduce through art or words or science, we wanted to focus 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 giveaway we'd like to focus on Random Acts of Kindness.
Tell us your story, whether it be something that you have done for another or something that someone else has done for you. 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. 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!)
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!
3. The original idea from @arsenal49 was 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 we will distribute it to all entrants and really share the love!
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.
UPDATE: I have found several users who are giving away the steem from their posts and I wanted to add them in to this post to share them with you! Thank you to the following:
@looftee presented the original "What Does Steemit Mean to Mean?" question, prompting Steemit users to evaluate the other reasons that they are on Steemit. HERE is the link to the update post.
@dracosalieri Is giving away all the steem from the thank you post HERE as a thank you to 100 followers. Congratulations!
UPDATE: Found another Thank You giveaway HERE from @aashishkandel. Keep up the good work!
