How do I go about following the daily entries?

While we hope that you will be inspired to think about chesed on a daily basis, we realize that it may be difficult to perform each suggestion on the day it appears in the calendar. A number of entries require extra planning before they can be carried out; the appendix, organized by date, is meant to help you implement those acts of kindness that can be difficult to plan. Let this calendar serve as your guide, and use its resources in a way that is comfortable and meaningful to you.
