    Random Acts Of Kindness

    Post  ameliorate on Sat Sep 07, 2013 5:07 pm

    For those who may not know, there is a movement (that anyone can "join" just by doing the act) called Random Acts Of Kindness.  It is just that.....doing something that makes a difference to someone - however small.
     
    Today there were volunteers at my supermarket, requesting that shoppers purchase an extra item for a food bank (for those less well off, e.g. on benefit and struggling).  I was happy to oblige and it felt great!
     
    Here is the website - it gives some suggestions too (click on Kindness Ideas)

    He could hardly walk himself.....

    Awww, that's a perfect example Voices :astar: 


    I pay for those behind me at the drive thru, if it's a harried parent with a load of kids... and I've been known to do the foodbank thing... and I might possibly keep a grocery store giftcard in my wallet for those days when someone is just a little bit short of cash for their full order, people find it easier to accept a card than to accept cash. Just a quick 'this will help' and walk away. I love it, selfish me.

    Yes I like the idea of posting what kind acts others do as well.   (I get that it can look like boasting....there is merit in just quietly making a small difference to someone without relating it).  Thereagain, it can act as a springboard to inspire too....that was the idea in starting this thread.  Never can be enough kindness....  :rainbow:

    I use to do a thing called deed of the day back in college, anything from giving some one a fag, saying something nice to a smile or compliment etc, but to be honest now I just put money in charity boxes.

    Here's a current worthwhile way of making your act of kindness have further ripples. Filling in the form (in the link below) enables the Government to make a donation to 6 charities for the Xmas period.

    I once received a double whammy of random acts of kindness at a time of need. My bike chain got all tangled up suddenly, on a high street. I upturned the bike on the pavement and started to grapple with yanking the chain free...not easy. This cheerful man came up and proceeded to take over the job. He did it but was covered in greasy hands (which embarassed me). He didn't seem to mind though and, after I offered my deep thanks, went away as cheerfully as he had appeared.

    I had black grease on my hands also so had to find a way of washing them. Nearby was a cafe that had a toilet. I propped my bike outside the shop and was hesitant about leaving it there unchained (didn't want to touch the fabric covered chain with my dirty hands). 3 people (who were chatting together nearby) had apparently seen this and came over. To my amazement, they offered to stand guard over my bike whilst I washed my hands! I could hardly believe it - seemed so unusual and heaven sent. I came out with cleaned hands and thanked them.
