Was on the West Coast Seeds (https://www.westcoastseeds.com) site today and noticed that they have raised $200,000 for food banks selling the Dr. Bonnie Henry pollinator blend seed packages. That’s what I call a win-win. Food banks benefit and pollinators benefit! Go West Coast Seeds! #KindnessisGoodForBusinessInBC
Our 16 year old son keeps ducks and bantams. Yesterday we visited a local food bank for him to deliver 30 eggs. It was the first of what I am certain will be many visits. I’m incredibly proud of him. x
I have been doing 40 days of Kindness for Lent. I am on Day 33. I have done a variety of acts over the last 32 days.
Every year for St. Patricks Day, i make soda bread to gift to friends and coworkers. I always make extra to gift to random people. I was making some loaves when i got a delivery. The delivery man was very nice and helpful, so i gave him a loaf and a generous tip. He said if he could, he would hug me because that made his day.
Every time I go thru a drive thru, I always pay for the car behind me. I have been doing this for many years, even when I travel. I love giving with my whole heart to a total stranger! It’s one of the best feelings in the world! I like to think I made their day just a little bit better!
Our New Year’s resolution was to ‘be kind’ after we were gifted £5 from a man the other weekend for litter picking we decided we wanted to do 12 random acts of kindness this year – 1 every month.
January’s random act of kindness – we used the £5 we were gifted and with the help of our local bakery we gave 5 random customers a yummy treat we hope they can keep this kindness going and do their own RAOK to help make people smile.
It probably doesn’t look like much, but my teacher drove an hour from his home to drop these art supplies off for me. I had considered dropping this class because I’m insecure about my art skills, but after this, I refuse to. He put effort into helping me so I feel like I should put some effort into this class as well.
Merry Christmas and Thank you very much
You know that moment of panic when you reach to your back pocket as the cashier brightly announces, “£13 and 42p”, and the pocket is empty. “Cash or card?”
“Shit! Neither. I’ve left my wallet.”
After agreeing to leave my trolley to one side, I’m walking to the exit and before I can start cursing myself for killing the planet with wasted journeys, someone behind me shouts, “Hold on mate.”
Oh, perhaps I didn’t forget my wallet after all, I thought. I must have somehow dropped it at the check-out.
“It’s your lucky day” says the cashier. “This kind gentleman is paying for your shopping.”
“#MerryChristmas” says the stranger as the machine bleeps to approve payment after his card swipe.
I’m sure the cashier could see my mouth gaping wide open even though I had on a mask. My flickering eye lids betrayed my confusion and astonishment. I managed to mutter, “Thank you very much.”
The shortish white guy wearing grey sweat gear turned chirpily saying, “Not a problem mate.” With no further ado, he’d left me to bag my shopping still stunned and reeling from his random act of kind generosity at Aldi UK in Donnington.
My mom surprised me with a wonderful advent calander from purdys chocolate. It was such a thoughtful way to start the holiday season and really made my day.
😁we went grocery shopping a few days ago stvour locsl Winco foods and becausecim disabled we get a helper to push the cart so my husband can oudh me in the wheelchair. our helper Gabe noticed how full our cart was getting and mentioned thstvif dhopprrs dprnd over $100 they get a free turkey. he asked if we wanted one…my husband immediately said no because we do tacos. I jumped in and ssid we could give it tobour neighbor leslie who is alesys doing sweet things for us (making food, etc). so I trxted her askingbif she couldcuse it.
