“SpReAd the Love” (STL) Acts of Kindness Campaign Kicks off for 2014, December 28, 2013 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #490)

A Blue Dandelion, an Ancient Armitage, and a “Boy” Artist walked into a bar ….  “You’d have thought they’d have seen it.” No, this is not what you’re thinking.   Ha!

This is no joke, but rather a lovely way to spReAd even more goodness and kindneszTHDofSPremLARichardArmitageSmilingClsDec0513IMDB-sized-clrs throughout the British actor Richard Armitage’s (image right of RA from 2013 LA World Premiere of THDofS, IMDB) fandom by celebrating the kindness we show to others and the kindness that they show to us in a year long world wide 2014 campaign affectionately labeled, SpReAd the Love (STL).

You may also give blood, or make donations of food or money to charities of your choice, or a donation to one of Richard Armitage’s Just Giving charities.  The point is to celebrate the giving and kind spirit in all of us.

So please visit these organizers’ web sites to learn more about STL 2014 (Thanks to them for organizing it!):

The SpReAd the Love campaign  is such a lovely giving and caring effort.  I hope that you will join us in it this year.  Cheers!

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
