Sharing stories of doing something nice all on your own 24,543 People

    I'm continually experiencing the harsher

    and disgusting facets from society and individuals. Though this makes me feel less of myself, It also makes me want to put more kindness, respect and understanding in to the world, Be it a gesture or something more. This sort of example and education is something we...

    On my way to work I noticed a homeless man

    huddled up by the train station. Around eight hours later I was making my way back home, and he was still there in the same place, just staring at the floor. It made me so sad I quickly bought a bag of crisps and some bottled water from the vending machine inside. I had a bit of...

    Kindness is never wasted,

    even if it does not seem appreciated at the time,it is never forgotten.

    Sometimes it does good

    and other times not so much. All I hope to accomplish from it is to allow a possitive energy to continue through us.

    Free Cookies To A Kid

    This is probably kinda dumb but yesterday, I was getting cookies from a vending machine. The thing malfunctioned and gave me two instead. When I turned around, I saw a little boy standing behind me (I think he was like 5 or 6 years old) and he wanted cookies too. So, I gave him...

    Whenever

    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...

    Sometimes when I leave a certain walmart close

    to my house, there's a drifter sitting on the same rock right as you pull out of the the parking lot. Who ever it may be that day I always pull up, ask if they smoke (they usually do) and give them four or five cigarettes. Not super amazing but it always gives me that good...

    The worth of a person is not in what they own

    or how much they make, yet in how much they give without need for anything in return.

    I had a sweet and very simple experience today!

    and perform a random act of kindness to set the balance of the universe back on "good", without expecting anything from it.

    If I come into your life,

    I want to leave you feeling better. I believe in being kind and thoughtful in everything I do. A compliment, holding open a door for someone, even if it's as little as a smile, I want to be a light in darkness.

    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...

    I was taught by my Dad that it doesn't cost you a dime to be nice. I'm glad to say that I've lived by that rule. I have a soft heart when comes to children, Senior citizens and people less fortunant. Whenever I see an older person by themselves,I make it a point to ease my way...

    On occasion while eating out I like to choose

    someone from the restaurant and pay their check anonymously. Sometimes it may just be an elderly person or cpl and other times it may be a young cpl with small children. Someone that looks as if they could use it.

    Every Act Of Kindness Counts!

    than receiving. I don't receive love very well. I feel love by doing for others. I love to go to the homeless shelter and cook for them and serve meals. It grounds me and reminds me that I am a catastrophe away from being in line with them.
