    Today I arrived home to find a box of flowers,

    new dog leash and a lovely note, as payment for a random act of kindness I performed. It has restored my faith in mankind, to have my selfless gesture appreciated by the owner. She told me I had saved her from paying $500 in fees. Being an avid animal lover, I noticed 2 dogs...

    Whenever Possible

    I look for opportunities to practice random acts of kindness.  Why anyone wouldn't, I'll never understand.

    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!!

    Check out Random Acts of Hazel on Facebook.

    It's a page dedicated to a great man that lived random acts of kindness in his everyday life, and recently lost his battle with cancer. His community is reaching out to the world in his memory by doing and telling about their RAKs.

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

    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

    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.
