Random Acts of Kindness Giveaway AARP- Win $100 Amazon Giftcard- Ends 12-5-15


Bloggin’ Mamas is sponsoring this giveaway in support of the Ad Council and the AARP & helping to raise awareness of the Caregiver Assistance campaign. November is National Family Caregivers month, and the Random Acts of Kindness initiative aims to recognize and support the 40 million unpaid caregivers in the U.S. Many caregivers are boomer women, often sandwiched between the needs of their parents and their own kids.

A popular misconception is that caregivers are paid medical professionals, providing full-time care to someone in need of daily help, when in reality, most caregivers are family members or friends who are also working and managing their own families at the same time. For many, the caregiving role starts with simple things like scheduling a doctor’s visit or helping with daily errands, but gradually expands over time, until it becomes a major commitment in their lives.

This month, they kicked off a program designed to encourage all Americans to perform an unexpected ‘Random Act of Kindness’ for a caregiver. By starting this nationwide movement, they’ll raise awareness of caregiving and caregivers while at the same time reaching caregivers directly—helping to alleviate some of their daily stresses and reward them for their ongoing support.

Almost three in ten people who are caring for someone say their life has changed with caregiving, oftentimes for the negative. More than one in five say their weight, their exercise, or their social life has/have suffered. Emotionally, one in five say they are generally unhappier and one in three say they feel sad or depressed. That’s why AARP created a community where caregivers can connect with experts and other caregivers and can find information and tools to take even better care of the person who once took care of them.

  1. I am a caregiver for a eighty year old woman who has parkinson’s disease. I cook for her and clean her apartment every week-

  2. Yes I have heard of AARP. The last raok I did was make dinner for my neighbor who has breast cancer and a masectomy.

  3. i am familiar- both my parents are members. last act was to take caretakers place for the day, so she could have an extra day off

  4. Yes I’m familiar with AARP, the last act of kindness was Monday, I donated to the senior center in my town

  5. I help out all my elderly neighbors and I’m a nurse so I’m constantly helping others.

  6. I have heard of it but am far from be eligible. My mother-in-law was a full time caregiver for her mother the last three years of her life and I help her as much as I can just kind of paying it forward

  7. no im not familiar with AARP. the last random act of kindness i did was get together some stuff for a friend who just got her own apartment. She didnt have much stuff.

  8. I am familiar with AARP. My grandma is a member. My uncle is a caregiver for my maternal grandfather. I go visit him from time to time to give him some company which he really needs as he is relatively secluded where he and my grandpa live.

    I am also a caregiver for my paternal grandmother full time. I bath her, dress her, fix her meals and do her laundry. I also try to coordinate activities for us to do together to keep us busy.

  9. I am familiar with AARP. My mom and her husband are caregivers for her mother in law and the other day my mom wasn’t feeling well so I made dinner and took it to them.

  10. I am familiar with AARP and I have not done a random act of kindness for a caregiver lately.

  11. I am familiar with aarp. The last raok was donating a bunch of clothes to the neighbors down the street that didn’t hardly have any!

  12. Fortunately, I’m not quite old enough to be too familiar with AARP yet…it’s coming, though. Also, I am a caregiver, so I do random acts of kindness every single day.

  13. I have heard of AARP and the last raok was making a meal for a new mom the first day she brought her newborn home

  14. I know that AARP is for old people I think? I help my mom and her friend that are getting real old all the time and feed homeless cat’s.

  15. Bummed, I just missed the deadline. This would’ve been a great gift for my caretaker.

  16. We are retired, don’t have a lot extra, but we help when we can. We buy balls, freezer sticks, sidewalk chalk, and give them to kids. Hubby makes wood toys, and gives them to kids. Some little acts of kindness.
