I tried to do a few Acts of Kindness this weekend. A stranger in front of me at the store was short some change, so I gave them what they needed. They were very surprised. I was also putting my cart away and offered to take another persons cart with mine. I am going to try to do more things in the coming weeks.
Check out other Random Acts of Kindness over at Wilson-Six.

Check out my SIL Jennifer’s post on Random Acts of Kindness. She is having a Giveaway. After reading her post, I was surfing the web and came across an article about a Random Act of Kindness. It was a very gracious story about a college age student who was working at Pizza Hut. It wasn’t your typical day though. She (Osborne) was cleaning off the table after a family had left and noticed an envelope on the table. When she opened the envelope, there before her eyes was a check for $10,000. You see, her life long dream was to go to college and become a professional photographer, but her dreams were broken because of the lack of finacial aid. The family who left the $10,000 tip were customers who came and ate there regularly and became to know her. What she didn’t know was they had just suffered some family losses involving a car accident. Two family members had been killed. They had won a large settlement and decided to help her dreams of going to college come true. What a Random Act of Kindness!!!
I think this is a great idea!! I try to do little things like letting someone in front of me who has just a few items at the Grocery Store and I have a whole cart full and there is only two registers open. Random Acts of Kindness don’t have to big like the story I just told you about. I love the idea of paying it forward. So go over to Jennifer’s blog and check out other peoples ideas!!
Check out the story on AOL.
