INSTRUCTIONS - WE HAVE REINVENTED THIS ACTIVITY 

1. Downloand and print "THE SIDE SERVES" ticket and cut into 4 tickets (use 1 or all 4!). 
DOWNLOAD TICKET HERE  TICKET PDF

2. "Do" something nice for another. 
** Did not get to it on time?  That's OK we'll continue this effort throughout April & May. 


3. Please note that you must "do" and take "action". An omission of some selfish act won't qualify.  You must "give" of yourself, some resource of time, talent, energy, or work.  Improve someone else's situation, day, or world.  

4. Give away your THE SIDE SERVES ticket to the person you served.  

You may just leave the ticket on a porch, or in a mailbox, on a door handle, and maybe a quick note on the back? "Hey I cleaned up your front yard.  Name.  Have a great day!".   Feel free to spread this ticket virtually in your cyber community.  


5. Report back to your coach or manager.  Shoot us a picture,story, or video, by emailing THESIDEMEDIA@GMAIL.COM.  We will share on social media to help remind others to get in the act of serviing.    Use #TheSideServes.   You can also upload a file here.

Let's help remind each other during a time of history that encouraged overwhelming thoughts of self-preservation, that SERVING OTHERS has value, is needed, and matters.  

7. Enjoy the reward that comes with serving others. 

"One of the greatest ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served."  

 - Gordon B. Hincley 


PLEASE SHARE A STORY/PHOTO/VIDEO OF YOU SERVING - WE WILL POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA W AN EFFORT TO PROMOTE MORE KINDNESS FOR OTHERS THIS WEEK and THIS MONTH.  SHARE HERE.
