Random Acts of Kindness


Untitled #33




Did you hear about the woman in Florida who payed for every diners meal at a diner this past Sunday?  Talk about being generous.  I think everyone should make a goal in life to apply some act of kindness towards others.  It doesn't necessarily have to be "paying" for anything.  You can hand-make a good and gift it to a stranger you see on the street.  I have heard many times that in the drive through line at Taco Bell, the driver in front of them paid for the meal for the car behind them.  Although it is a simple act of kindness, it really hits heart when it happens to you.  I think we should all make a pledge to do this act of kindness more often.

It's good to know there are still good people in this world-- especially after all the horrible news lately.

A month ago I went to our mailroom and found a bag Full of non-perishable groceries with a note that said "Please take what you need. God Bless." 
I thought to myself, how nice of someone to share with those in our community. 
 So a few weeks ago I went through my closet and took out several items I no longer need and put them in a cute backpack with a note that said "Please take what you need, or give to goodwill."
Although it's something so simple, I'm sure someone out there appreciated the gesture just as I did.

Another story-- at the restaurant I worked at, we had this homeless man that would sit outside on the curb by the main road on a very cold day in February.  My manager walked outside and gave him some soup, bread and water.  He smiled and nodded his head.  Just the little things you can do can make you feel good inside and make someone else so thankful.

Here are some ideas to share some random acts of kindness around the world:

* Purchase 2 dozen roses and had the nurses give them away to the particularly lonely patients in the ICU
 
* Tape a wrapped popcorn bag to a Redbox

*  Put money towards someones gas at the pump.

* Leave coins at a car wash

* Giftcard to the homeless 

* Send a present to a soldier

* Hide a gift card in a book at the bookstore.

Have you ever done a random act of kindness?  Help an elderly cross the street? Something so simple can turn someones life around. We are the future, and only WE can turn it around. I'd love to hear your stories!
