I Perform Random Acts Of Kindness

Sharing stories of doing something nice all on your own 34,039 People

    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...

    This kid (23 years old) came into my practice

    one day with an infection. His parents are drug addicts so he was the primary care giver of four younger siblings. Essentially this kid had four kids at age 23! Not fair right? He wasn't angry about it. He was happy to handle the siblings and from what I saw in the kids...

    A Stranger's Gift....

    I and my gamer friend were playing a game at an

    arcade in Yokohama. A mother came to him and asked him to lend her 1000 yen ($10) because her elementary school kid wanted to play games and she had no money. Each game was only 50 yen so she definitely wasn't rich. She was a stranger but my friend sympathized and lent her money...

    With all the (somewhat earned) negativity

    towards police officers it's easy to forget there are some really good ones out there just trying to do their job. I met some very sweet ones the other night just opening the door for them, then bought my pack of cigarettes and handed the cashier a $20 and said "get them...

    I don't really see these things as being all that kind, because to me, it's just the way things should be. I hold the door open for people. I help people who have too many things in their hands. I will take the cart from someone who just unloaded it into their car, if I'm on...

    I saw a beetle flipped upside down

    and struggling. I put my foot close to it and it grabbed my shoe. I shook my shoe a little and let it go back to the ground on its feet.

    Kindness is the language

    which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our...

    I'm not sure whether one would class this

    as kind because it doesn't really involve human feelings or anything like that, but it was an act of conscience that I feel good about. Where I live, the bees are in decline and it is very sad because I have always had a soft spot for them. They can often be found lying down...

    I give back when I can.

    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...

    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 am a very kind soul

    and love to perform acts of kindness toward and for others. I enjoy helping others in life. When someone helps others they will be well rewarded when they need help too. What goes around comes around they say. I totally believe that philosophy.

    Lined up at the queue,

    waiting for my turn to pay. At the neighbouring cashpoint, I notice a group moving together in unison: a thin woman of about 30, two young children clinging to her dress and a young girl of about 16. They were speaking a language I couldn't identify. I observed them as the young...

    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.
