July 1st was National Postal Workers Day, so we’re a bit late in celebrating; however, anytime is a great time to thank your mail carrier for delivering your bills, ads, and (on the rarest of occasions) fun mail! Enlist the help of your kids to decorate the mailbox with a sign that says Thank You Mailman! You can also include goodies, crafts, or anything you’d like- along with the SACKed card.

Since it’s the week before Father’s Day, this week’s Shining Act of Community Kindness is to write a kind note to your dad and give it to him BEFORE Father’s Day (so it will actually be a surprise!). Sneak it in his wallet or lunch box, or leave it on his pillow or bathroom sink! You could also do a chore that Dad usually does around the house (ie: take the trash out and leave a SACKed card on the empty trash can!) Don’t forget to attach a SACKed card and call us with your story at 855-987-4463.

This week’s SACKed idea is another easy one — leave exact change in a soda or vending machine! Wouldn’t you just love to head for your afternoon pick-me-up and find that someone had already paid for it?! Don’t forget to tape a SACKed card on those quarters, and call us to share your story at 855-987-4463.

This week’s SACKed idea is to thank someone you probably have never thanked before – your sanitation worker (or trash man)! It’s a thankless job, but you’d notice if they quit working. So, this week on trash day, decorate your trash bin with some streamers and a huge sign that says THANK YOU! You can also leave a SACKed card, or perhaps include a gift card to your favorite coffee shop.
Send us your pictures and share your story at 855-987-4463!

This week’s SACKed idea is to celebrate Memorial Day and honor our Veterans and military men and women currently serving their country. There are lots of ways you can bless a soldier or his/her family this week. One idea is to write a thank you note to a veteran that you know. Another is to send a care package to a solider serving overseas. Be creative this week as we SACK those who fight for our freedom on a daily basis. Then call us to share your story at 855-98-SHINE!
Every Friday morning 5:30 a.m. Whoever is behind me in line at Dunkin Donuts drive up window I purchase their order and they get a sacked card 🙂 I have seen some pretty tired people that early not to mention on a Friday. I am sure they are looking forward to the weekend and hope this puts them in a little more relaxing mood for the day. God Bless you and your station.
This week’s SACKed idea is a Shine.FM favorite — the Drive-Thru Difference! Just print a SACKed card from our website, take it to the drive-thru, and pay for the person’s order behind you! You could be the reason for a story like this from Kelly:
“I just wanted to send you this message this morning I was down to my last two dollars and 50 cents in my wallet really wanted coffee and some breakfast so I stopped at Dunkin Donuts in Joliet on Hobart Road. I ordered a medium coffee and a hash brown because I knew I would have just enough money for that. When I came to the drive thru window, I was told that the person in front of me paid for me. I have done in the past what I’ve had extra money. I feel so blessed this morning that someone did that for me when I don’t have the money. I’ve been kind of down all week because we are low on money and I believe that was God’s Way of telling me it will be okay. Thanks to the stranger who paid for my coffee and breakfast this morning!”
It’s just another fun, low-cost way to make a difference in someone’s day! Then call us to share your story at 855-98-SHINE!
