Lawn Care

A month ago, I wrote about the Foundling Museum’s EXCHANGE exhibition in London, the one that’s using teacups to trigger over a thousand acts of kindness. I mentioned there’s an online version of the exhibition that’s been set up to allow for 10,000 additional good deeds. Anyone can suggest a good deed idea, and anyone can accept one.

Now I’ve learned that someone has agreed to do the good deed I submitted. I proposed mowing a next-door neighbour’s lawn. Someone’s going to do it. What a kick.

The person who’s taking this on could be anywhere on earth – this is the world wide web, after all. But from his name, I’m guessing he’s Irish. So perhaps someone’s grass in the Emerald Isle will be a little more carefully manicured this week, all thanks to this online (and rather entertaining) EXCHANGE of good deeds.

An act of kindness any neighbour will appreciate? You bet your grass.
