Many times tragedy or humor makes us lose our sense of humor and one of the things we need to keep is that ability to laugh. Often times, it's perfectly okay to joke with the person who has lost, who not feeling so great, and have a good time with them. Give them a joke book. You could be their funny movie person. Every week, come over with a funny movie to watch. Joking about a crisis is a great way to seek relief. It's a great thing to do for your friend.

The mission of “100 Acts of Love” is to help everyone understand and embrace their importance in the lives of their friend in crisis and to provide the tools and courage needed to support them in a truly meaningful and helpful way.
