The ‘Written Acts of Kindness Award’


‘Written Acts of Kindness Award’

My first nomination for the ‘written Acts of kindness Award’ goes to Kathleen Burkinshaw.

Kathleen is an author who battles through a painful neurological disease which affects her hands, making typing difficult. Despite this, she is a staunch supporter of other bloggers. She engages with, and supports many other bloggers, always giving encouraging comments. I am only one of the grateful bloggers on the receiving end. So thank you Kathleen, you certainly deserve this award.

Rules of the ‘Written Acts of Kindness Award’

  1. You are welcome to give it out as many times as you like, but it is only to be given to a maximum of one person per blog post. If you wish to give multiple rewards, please space the blog posts so the sincerity is maintained.
  2. Introduce the person; say how they encourage, help or inspire you; then link to their work and/or social media profiles. There may be a specific post you wish to link to which helped you. It’s up to you.
  3. Please publicise your award post to Twitter or Google Plus using the hashtag #writtenkindness so that others can find and follow the award winners.

This award is open to anyone to use. You don’t have to receive it, in order to be able to give it. Once you have received it, it isn’t obligatory that you must pass it on.


About caroleparkes

My husband calls me a butterfly because I flit from one hobby to another. Apart from being a wife for 52 years, a mother of three sons, and a grandmother, I'm also an author, genealogist, amateur artist, a lover of most needlecrafts, and occasional poet. Of the above, my most enduring interest has been writing and I hope to be doing it well into old age.
