Giveaway: Who Wants a Taco T-Shirt??

Something pretty cool happened…

I posted about my taco cart experience a few weeks ago, and somehow (through the magic of the internet), the company, Rasta Taco, heard about it.

 

 

They left a comment on the post, and even wrote about it on their own blog! Awesome. :)

 

Oh – and they wanted to send me a t-shirt. How cool is that?!

I really appreciate them reaching out and the offer!

 

I asked them, since I’m traveling light, if it would be cool to send the t-shirt along to one of YOU, and they said absolutely! :)

  1. I’d love to win the shirt. Here’s my entry. At our church we do Fight Club-style homework every Sunday. I sent the entire congregation away with the homework of doing a random act of windshield kindness. Their job was to find at least one random car that week and leave a gift certificate under the windshield. Taking a single random act for someone and multiplying by my entire church attendance.

      hey david – thanks so much for the reply, and LOVE what you had your congregation do.

      now, i’m gonna (playfully) push here a little bit: i see how your congregation helped out others—what i’d love to hear is a time when you helped out someone you didn’t know! :)

      (or, if you followed the homework assignment you mentioned above— what gift certificate did you leave?)

    Hey Nathan, I just always enjoy paying the toll for the car in back of me when I go through toll booths. I like thinking, I wonder who “the lucky one” will be as I pull up, and I actually enjoy more speeding away as I imagine the drivers momentary whoosh of delight. Usually I don’t even see the driver again, but on a recent trip with my kids, the car made an effort to pull up to on on the right. It was a young couple and the driver, the man, honked, gave us a huge way and a big thumbs up as he drove by. He was so excited, it really thrilled us! I mean it was only $2 but, sometimes its the little things that make your day. I think I get more enjoyment out of it than they do!

  3. I always leave $5 Starbucks gift cards on the random windshields. I love coffee and would like to pass that on. So many people equate coffee with pleasure and relaxation and I’d love to help pass that feeling along as well.

    • Nathan says:

      very cool, david!

      though as a non-coffee drinker, i think i also associate that beverage with jittery, non-relaxing energy – ha! ;)

    I can always feel when someone is in need of encouragement. I don’t have a lot of money, but I always have a kind word and a smile for a brother or sister. :) It it is the least I can do.

    I was driving home after work, it was super hot outside and a familiar face (a nomadic young guy-musician) was hitching…I was feeling especially adventurous and blessed, so I gave him a ride, bought him a Happy Hour dinner and a train ticket back to his parents house 300 miles away. He was so grateful, he’d been on a walkabout and run out of money. It was a bit daring but he looked so familiar, like someone I knew only younger. It turned out really well. I don’t make a habit up picking up hitchhikers, something said “yes” to me when I asked if I should.

    • Nathan says:

      WOW. LOVE your openness and generosity!

      i know there have been many times that people have “taken a chance” on me, and i’ve been SUPER grateful. :)

      and what a cool quasi-connection (that you thought you knew him…)!

    I know the contest is closed, but this is one of my favorite stories. I was dining alone at a Mexican restaurant, fully enjoying my ‘just me’ time. The restaurant was busy, so service was a bit slow. I finally got my food only to notice that it was the wrong order. When the waiter came to check on me, I noticed that HE noticed it was the wrong order but he decided to gamble and not say anything. After all, when he asked if everything was ok, I said, “it is, thanks!” He was pretty fidgety the rest of the time, probably wondering why i hadn’t complained about the food, but it just wasn’t worth making a fuss (or waiting for the right order to be made) so I ate it. I knew he worried he wouldn’t get a decent tip. I left him $10 on a $9 bill. I left before he got it. He probably thought I had a screw loose, but really it was just my gift to him that some people can just roll with things.

    • Nathan says:

      ha – this is awesome laura – thanks so much for sharing! :)

      and beside, in a different reality (or on a different night), who’s to say you wouldn’t have ordered the dish you received?!

      gotta love Wayne Dyer’s wisdom on this one: “when we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.” :)

      again, super appreciate you chiming in!!
