Do something nice

Thanks to Gail Aldwin for alerting me about this competition.

Publication and a £100 prize are on offer for the best 500 word story with a joyful or uplifting theme. They want stories of positivity, hope and living life to the full. 

There's no entry fee, but the competition is being run to spread awareness of blood stem cell donations (did you know you could donate stem cells?)

Entrants are asked to do one of several things before entering, such as registering as a donor, making a cash donation or doing a good deed.

I have a request. Even if you don't plan to enter, see if you can do a good deed today. Doesn't have to be much, just a gesture which makes someone else smile.

The photos are of Scarista beach (Harris, Outer Hebrides) - a joyfully uplifting place to visit.


  1. I try to do a good deed every day.
    Beautiful place. Is that you wading into the water?

  2. I think sharing those photos were your good deed for today - how gorgeous!

  3. I signed up for the Anthony Nolan list decades ago when I was a blood donor. I'm too old now.

  4. Hi Patsy - wonderful part of the world ... exquisite colourings ... matching the red hair! Looks incredible ... cheers Hilary

  5. Wondrous photos and I hope that my good deed of sharing your post makes someone smile.

    All the best and here's to the beach.
