Dave Ferguson, Lead Pastor of Community Christian Church, Naperville, Illinois, shared on Facebook how he gave Starbuck's coffee to the staff at a local Kinko's. They weren't expecting it and Dave wrote about their reaction: ""…you'd think they won the lottery! A little generosity goes a long way!"
Out of that experience, a Facebook group was formed. 365 Club. It's for anyone who is committing to do at least 365 random acts of kindness throughout the 2009 year. It's based on the premise that everyone expects gifts at Christmas time. But if a bunch of us made giving a part of our everyday life, we could change the world.

I got our local paper on January 1, 2009. At the top of the front page was a "Happy New Year" block. The rest of the front page was nothing but bad news. Our world needs good news. It needs the Good News. Why not show your world what the Good News is? Join the group. Share your journey with the other Club members.
Have a GREAT new year!
