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 Grade One Students came up with a months worth of Random Acts of Kindness that the school community could do at home and school during the pandemic. Share Kindness everyday!
Every morning between 3 and 4am, my husband gets up to feed our beloved—but extremely hungry—cat. This lets me get a couple more hours of sleep so I can wake refreshed each day. He does it quietly, lovingly, and without a hint of complaining.
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.
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.
Our neighbour spotted a baby crow a month ago, that had left it’s nest, but wasn’t able to fly, and was getting dehydrated and looking unwell. We watched the crow, and decided it needed help. Our daghter, with the help of our neighbours, called the SPCA to report the injured baby crow, and a woman from the SPCA came promptly and picked up the crow kindly and took it in to care for it! Thank you to neighbours, and the SPCA for looking out for the local wildlife and caring for them!
Yesterday I had to pick up a few things at the grocery store but I had my dog with me. I was feeling a little nervous about leaving her outside while I went in. There was a man sitting on the patio and I asked if he could keep an eye on my pup. He said he was happy to and when I came back out of the store, he and my dog were both still there. I felt so relieved. I thanked him profusely and he replied it was no problem. I don’t think he knew how much it meant to me to have someone outside with her, even though it was only for a few minutes. Thank you sir!
This may sound strange but thanks to Jelly Bean, a friends dog, for escorting us through bear country without incident. His was always paying attention to us, and the mountains.
My friend and I were walking her 3 legged dog past a hospital where an elderly man sitting in a wheel chair asked if we could bring her over to say hi. He told us about how he was going to lose a leg and would be just like her soon. Despite what he was going through, had the most positive outlook on life and said “if she can do it, so can I!”
