Yes, A few days before my birthday, I was heading back into town, and off to the side of the road was a young couple looking down on their luck, and short of money and food. I pulled off to the side, and gave them what remaining chinese food I had left over that I had barely touched. Not only that, I stopped at the local grocery store and picked up an assortment of foods and water. I went back to the place where they were, In tears, not out of pity, but this is God's love and calling. I Did this for the pure joy of giving. They thanked me of course a hundred times over, I didn't do it for the praises, I did because their situation had struck a personal chord and I felt COMPELLED to act! I have never felt so closer to God then when I did that day.
Any human being should. But if you do it and announce it I think it does not count. Things I do are anonymous and I choose to keep them that way. If you do something and let everybody know you are stroking your ego , and making sure everyone knows what a great person you are ! A real act of charity is done without fanfare !
A man collapsed on a bus, and I gave him cpr, and I got a couple of girls out of a burning kitchen, but nearly cacked myself afterwards with fear! but this was years ago, and I am not sure If i would have the nerve to do it again.
Lol these are all great. I try to being kind every day. Recently I bought a stranger a baby gift to cheer her up.It was a new mom that was having premature labor. That felt good. I love to do stuff like that.
When I can, where I can. Do a lot of door-holding for folks--minimal effort, high reward ratio.
Got kind of startled / shocked once last summer when money was super-tight and a total stranger at the gas station palmed ME fifteen bucks! But maybe my giving him the opportunity to give was a gift in itself.
I love doing random acts of kindness - fastest way to bring my mood level up that I know of is to do something that assists or uplifts another. Even wrote a hub about it. Love it and love being on the receiving end of them too.
A local radio station is requesting 20,000 local fans to pledge at least one act of kindness during this holiday season. This inspired me to do the same on hubpages. I am interested to read how everyone is...
This is not a compliant, but I've noticed that one of my most popular hubs had a drop in page views. It went from about 184,000 views to 172,000 views. I'm just wondering how this happened and what it means.
