    A man approached me at the bus stop downtown

    yesterday. Obviously homeless, and he bummed a cigarette from me. We ended up talking for a few minutes, and I gave him my pack of cigarettes as I was going into work to collect my paycheck. I really hope I made that person's day.

    When I was 16, I got a summer job

    as a waitress at a small hotel. One day I went to work as usual but I was feeling extremely down. I just lost a friend in a motorcycle accident and also had tons of issues to deal with at home. I served a couple (a man and woman) and they were nice. One of my coworkers noticed...

    one form of random act of kindness is taking

    the shovel and putting the guy out of his misery lol no just kidding but sometimes telling a joke in and of itself is an act of kindness that way you can lift someone's spirits up when they're feeling down

    I go out every Tuesday

    for coffee with my friends, often I see a homeless guy in a tunnel we walk through, I buy him some food and a cup of coffee. I wonder what his story is. I hope he finds somewhere before the weather gets cold.

    I try to avoid the tolls

    as best I can because I don't have a lot so I'm stingy about what little I have. But when I go through a toll, I'm always sure to pay for the guy behind me. Sometimes if I have enough, I'll pay for two or three cars. It's not much, and it's not often, but I know it makes a...

    I can't help myself where ever I am no matter

    how bad my day is if I see someone needing help even if nothing to do with me and there people paid to help I always offer or just do the help without asking something which I do automatically.

    At times our kindness back fires.

    At that moment it works. People benefit. Thank you. Feel happy. Grateful. Give promises of life long friendship and love. Later, at the 1st sight of storm, they turn and spit like a viper... saying that they din't ask fir our help, they din't beg for it. It was uncalled for...

    I had a sweet and very simple experience today!

    I was at a pedestrian stoplight and made eye contact with a very stern, rude looking woman! It looked like she was glaring at me but I ignored that fact and instinctively smiled at her just because this is what I naturally do when I make eye contact. Anyhow after we crossed...

    Every Act Of Kindness Counts!

    There are probably many people out there who share the regret of not having enough time - or not putting enough time in to volunteerism. There are also those who never even stop to think about it - who don't hold a door for the person behind them - or help an elderly person load...
