This past year has been a very challenging one. Depending on who you ask, there are countless reasons for why people are glad that 2016 has come to a close. Our newsfeeds were filled with depressing news and negative stories that would drag us down instead of build us up.
It’s not that 2016 had no goodness to be found — there were plenty of great things to talk about! In fact, if you have the right attitude and the right focus, goodness can be found just about everywhere: in our families, in our jobs, in our friendships, even in the foods we eat. The trick is just knowing where and how to find it.
We want to move forward with positive attitudes and genuine goodness so we can make sure we spend less time hearing about the negative and spend more time talking, sharing and hearing about the positive — about love, service and kindness.
Starting tomorrow, we want to change the conversation — change the way people see the world and flood people’s social media feeds with goodness. We want to recognize goodness, share goodness, reward goodness and believe in goodness.
That’s where you come in!
You are going to help us spread and share the goodness all over by telling us about people who inspire goodness. We want to hear stories that will lift us up and encourage us to do the right thing on a daily basis, but we need your help!
There are a handful of ways that you can join the conversation via social media and inspire goodness:
Go to our Facebook page and share with us a story about someone you know who inspires goodness. Make sure you tag them in the post and include #InspireGoodness.
Post a picture, tag the person who you think inspires goodness and include #InspireGoodness. Tell us a little about their story and share the love.
Using #InspireGoodness, send us a tweet with a quick story about someone you know who inspires goodness. Don’t forget to tag them in the tweet!
Fill out the form and tell us about who you think inspires goodness on our #InspireGoodness page. Both you and the person you nominated will have the chance to win $1,000!
We’re so excited for you to share all your stories about goodness! We’d like to share a bit of goodness of our own, as well. Come visit your local Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen and experience the goodness that we provide: made-from-scratch meals, hand-crafted drinks and great service.
