TIE ONE ON DAY 2017 Celebrates 12 Years of Kindness!

The more who participate, the more who receive acts of kindness

 

Twelve years ago on Thanksgiving eve, I wrapped a baked good in an apron with a handwritten note of sympathy tucked in, and delivered it to a neighbor experiencing more heartache than should ever be. Her response of delight and warmth was unexpected and very touching.

In offering a small gesture of recognition to her family’s situation, I was stunned at the joyfulness that I experienced. The win-win of the exchange was so memorable, I knew it had to be shared. So I created TIE ONE ON DAY™.

    Each year it is a treat in September, to thoughtfully decide on the bread recipe, the apron pattern and fabric and person receiving the gift.

    I have a sweet neighbor that I want to take a dish too. I plan on wrapping the dish in a full apron instead of just cloth. She loves to cook for her huge family and I have never seen her wear an apron. Know she will love this gesture. I will wear an apron my friend sent me from TN for Tie One on Day a couple of years ago

    I have a neighbor who always makes a meal and delivers it to someone she knows is sick or having a difficult time. She asks around often to be sure she hasn’t missed someone! I know this past year has been hard on her with the passing of her father, and her very elderly mother still wanting to stay at home, my neighbor visits her mother daily and spends quite a bit of time assisting her in any way she can. I’ve been a recipient of her meals more than once this past year after my daughter passed away, and I want to return the kindness. After I learned of this wonderful apron/home baked good gifting activity, I knew what I wanted to do!
