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

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.

a little hidden gem of a smiley face for everyone who visits this mail box 🙂

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.

Hadn’t planned to run today at all thanks to shite sleep but a couple blocks came up.. kinda glad I did now.
Thank you small town Avon lady 💗

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.

Wow. Today I received this lovely bunch of flowers from one of my podcast guests. Completely unexpected!

Soooo… my mum sent a parcel from holland to us, in the uk. a week later she realised she’d forgotten to put our house number on. I went to our local post office depot to see if they could help. they could and oh boy they did! bearing in mind the busy xmas period, not to mention the pandemic, the searched (6000 parcels a day pass through there) and communicated it round and a few days later they phoned me to say: they had found it and i could collect it. they didn’t need to do this. it was above and beyond their call of duty and an act of kindness
