random acts of kindness

Have you ever done something really nice for someone else? Has someone done such a thing for you? I want to celebrate that. I want to celebrate nice things.

I love receiving random acts of kindness. I love people who do kind things for others. I love giving out niceness. I love going out of my way to make someone smile.

This blog will include anything in these categories. Please submit stories about acts you’ve done or received (anonymously or not), things you want to do for others, ideas for random acts of kindness, tales of friendship, and anything else you can think of!

Dreaming Wide Awake: Made my day of the day:

So I went to WalMart today to buy some things for my teaching demonstration. I paid with a debit card, and as I was leaving, the cashier said: “Wait, don’t you want your receipt?” And I said sure, and then he held it up and said “Well, alright…but I’m only gonna give it to you because you look so…

I don’t want to be one of those people who flaunts their good deeds in everyone’s faces, but I just wanted to share this.

I saw a picture just like this on here last night and decided that the people around here need some happiness and such. So, I made three of them (three for each floor), with the words, love, hope, faith, patience, courage, understanding, peace, passion, healing, strength, beauty, freedom, happiness, friendship, and release at the bottom. My roommate and I put them up around 10PM last night and by 12AM, five slivers of paper had been taken from the one on our floor (second photo). I was swelling with pride, though no one knew it was I who had done it. Then, just now, my roommate and I walked through each floor, seeing if any others had made any progress. The one on the second floor if the first photo, with all of the slivers except for “Beauty.” taken off of the paper, and someone wrote: “To whoever did this, Thank You.” on the paper. I almost cried. I was so happy. I wanted to help people, though this is really the smallest way possible, but to have actually accomplished it…I can’t tell you how happy I am. I’m so happy I was able to help at least one person. The sliver “Hope.” was also taped to someone’s door on that floor, and seeing that also made me extremely happy.

The papers on our floor and the third floor also have quite a few slivers taken off of them, but no messages. But I don’t even need a message: as long as someone is taking the slivers and there’s a possibility that I’ve just helped someone, I’m happy. 

Seriously, everyone should do a random, anonymous act of kindness. It makes you feel like a million bucks.

So. This morning a nice lady got me out of my morning funk by saying hi and smiling. Theeeennn I got home and parked at the same time as this same lady and she had an arm full of girl scout cookies. I asked her (a little toooo enthusiastically…) where she got them, (her niece), and she insisted that I take a box. FOR. FREE.

For those who don’t know, yesterday I started a campaign to raise $5,000 to help my friends in Tanzania buy land needed to build a youth trade center in their community of Moshi. Most of the time, when older kids age out of the centers (like the boys in the picture will in a couple years!), if…
