What is the last random act of kindness you engaged in?
Do you partake in random acts of kindness? What is the last one you remember? I think it's nice this time of year to focus on the goodness in others. For me, I donated anonymously to help cover someone's medical expenses. Can't say more without giving it away lol
If we come here and describe our acts of kindness, they lost a bit of their kindness, don't they?... anyway the last I did, or that I remember, was this last week.
My last act of kindness was giving to a worthy cause. Just a little, I know I can do more. I also want to remember to stay kind to people who say things that brings out the meanness in me. Seldom to i get mad, sometimes i do though. People, one has to learn to be flexible in all things so that helps with keeping control within yourself. I have learned to laugh it off and realize its not that bad.
Last week in supermarket parking lot, an elderly woman couldn't get her remote control key to work to open her car...she was talking to herself wondering why it wasn't working; I wasn't sure if I could help but I went over to check. It wasn't working but then I just used the key and manually opened the car. I didn't do too much but she was more than thrilled and very appreciative. Sometimes the little things you do mean the most.
I made a very nice deposit in my saving account to ensure that I and my family do not become a receipant of charity or welfare.
This is rather selfish of me though, as I have probably have prevented some one from bragging about their last random act of kindness, which I find obnoxious and selfservicing.
I asked the question to promote good will and positivity towards others. I hope the day never comes where you need to rely on someone's kindness either, since we tend to have returned to us what we dole out.
Your question was self-servicing. Acts of kindness do not need promotion. No patting on ones back is necessary.
You assume far to much and I think that speaks to your attempt at self-grandisment.
I wasn't looking for a pat on the back. I'm sorry you can't comprehend the purpose of the post which was to inspire and bring positivity to the Q&A that has been overtaken lately by so much spite and pettiness. You have the option to not answer.
Apparently people are not able to accept this question in the spirit it was intended. Mentioning acts of kindness is not self-serving if the purpose of it is to demonstrate through answers various acts of kindness by several people. If I had said "I did this for someone wasn't that nice of me?" then that would be self serving - simply sharing acts of kindness one has participated in is not. Perhaps it could inspire someone else to remember acts of kindness they received, or to want to do something above and beyond for someone else. The purpose of the question at this, the time of year where we are supposed to focus on good will towards man and all that was to show positivity. If that got lost in translation then I'm sorry. Hoping all who read this have a great holiday whatever you celebrate.
The last act of kindness that I engaged is was getting a lost dog and contacting the Vet that was on her Rabies Tage. I kept her until her owner had the time to come and get her. She was a sweetheart of a dog. She was part Husky and part wolf and she tree'd my outside cat. LOL, he has never been tree'd like that. Then I adopted their cat. That was unexpected, but now we have a new addition to my family of 5 cats making it once again 6. His name is Sidney and he is the sweetest thing too. He got to meet all my other cats today. He and the dog did not get along at their house and was going to the pound and most likely was to be put to sleep because all the shelters are too full of cats this time of year. About 3 months ago I also rescued another lost dog and kep him until his owners could come and get him.
Sitting at a bus stop, I was watching someone selling The Big Issue (a magazine usually sold by unemployed or homeless people in London). Nobody wanted to buy it, so I gave her some money anyway.
That's awesome and I'm sure it was much appreciated. I imagine it would wear on a person to have to try to sell something no one wanted just to scrape by.
We did that sort of thing a couple years ago. The Animal Welfare Society was having a flower sale. We didn't want any of the plants so we just donated $25.00 in the bucket.
We do 50/50 drawings at work for when somebody is in need. 2 weeks ago I brought $20 of raffle tickets but put his name on the ticket. I am not sure if my ticket won because a lot of people did the same.
