    Does anyone else like to perform random acts of

    kindness? I like to and then see how the person I did a piece of kindness for do an act of kindness for someone else, sort of like a chain reaction! Try it sometime!!

    Kindness

    random acts of kindness are the best because people are so surprised by them, why treat someone well on their birthday and not the other 364 days.

    Idk if this counts as random acts of kindness

    but whenever I play those claw machines rather then keep it I usually love giving little kids what I win. Or I'll go to a game room spend like 30$ an give all the tickets to a small child that maybe can't win that much.. Either way It still feels great to see that smile

    I think giving a movie

    or a cd to a person can make them happy. If you can't do that a smile goes a long way too.

    I don't get many opportunities

    Appreciate

    I work at a florist shop, and I have been inspired to make arrangements and disperse them to businesses around my community, to thank them for their services. People need to hear from time to time that what they do is not unnoticed and unappreciated.
