    Every now and then I'll buy several pre-paid

    cards for restaurants with $20 or so loaded ... Then keep them in my purse and hand them out randomly to the homeless people I pass on the street. If I can, I like to stop and talk with them a bit, and try and make a human connection.

    I perform many acts of kindness through out the

    day. Some simple, some planned out. Whatever it is-it makes me feel good to know I've helped and impacted someone in the slightest way possible. Some small acts of kindness I do will be holding the door open for people, shoveling snow or raking leaves, giving my elder neighbors...

    With everything that I went through,

    I was lucky enough to have that chance to get back on my feet and live life again. With only few friends and family who stuck by me while I was struggling to get back on my feet, I promised myself to always give back. My husband and I have been on it when I went back to my home...

    The Coupon Lady

    At a place I worked in till a few months ago, there was a coworker I'd notice at lunch time or break times, she was always poring through magazines and newspapers, clipping out coupons. She wasn't someone who talked much to me, but I took note of it, kind of thinking "I ought to...

    Just about every day.

    You know what? Everybody deserves some love every day and if I can give a little so much the better. Seems to always come back around too - though that is not the reason for being kind.

    only look out for themselves how hard is it to hold a door for someone or to say thank you and actually mean it, a simple smile at someone u may not know it all goes a long way

    I do them because if I don't i feel like a total jerk, I don't like to usually tell people because then they think I'm trying to brag about being a "better person" for it, and I don't. I've just helped people big or small things, i think it's nice :3 and it makes me happy :)
