Coffee to bell ringer
Coupons given back
Meal at McDonald's
This only cost me $2.50. The lady behind me started honking as I pulled away.
At first i thought she was mad, but when i looked back she was
waving thanking me with the biggest smile on her face!
Policeman's meal at back yard burger
This is my favorite one! I wasn't planning on buying another meal until
a policeman pulled behind me in the drive thru. I was thrilled! I
wanted to let him know how much I appreciate him!
$5.00 to regions teller
When I got my cash i was able to tell her what i was planning on doing
with it and when i was about to walk away I decided to start with her!
Candy bar for bell ringer
I asked the older man ringing the bell on the way in what his favorite candy
bar. It was only .48. As i was telling my mom, if i do not have .48
to make someones day better then i am worse off than i should
be. We pass up such easy opportinities!
Candy bar for cashier
Tea for Matt
I decided I couldnt just show love to strangers, but also to my fiance!
He loves milos sweet tea, but doesnt get it often because it's to
expensive for a college student. I surprised him with a gallon
when i came back!
Tea for jen
It's close to finals and I know that my roomie (We are both RA's
now so we no longer share a room, but we are still very close!) loves hot tea from the mall.
So i picked up her favorite kind!
Bacon for Sarah
I have a friend at college who loves... and that is an understatement for bacon.
lol I bought a thing of bacon and left it in her refrigerator with an encouraging note!
I cant wait until she gets back
Folding clothes for girls
This is another free one and easy! At school we have a community laundry room.
Often if you need the dryer you just sit the ones that were in the dryer on top.
So the other night i made a point to fold all of the clothes. It is no biggie at all,
but around this time of the semester we all need a little help!
Clean ladies house
I babysit on a rgular basis. This time the lady had had a rough day and her house
was not as clean as normal. So after the kids went to bed i just picked
up and cleaned the kitchen!
Goodies for girls
Again... It's almost finals and everyone can use a little energy
boost! Left som treats by the door for each girl!
Heart cough drops
One of the girls in the dorms wasnt feeling so great so I taped
cough drops in a heart shape!
Give goodie's to police and firemen
We made all kinds of cookies and delivered them to a few different fire
and police stations! The girls had a blast today giving them out!
Apple cider and crackers to bell ringers
It wasnt so cold today, but they still seemed to enjoy it though!
Popcorn taped to redboxes
This was a fun idea for the next person who rented the next
movie they would have free popcorn!
Cupcakes to scouts fundraising with Christmas trees
We made cupcakes and gave it out to all the hungry boys trying to raise money!
Coffee for girls during late nights
During the week of finals the girls will all be up late so i have it set
up where there will be coffee and snacks set up all night!
Thank you cards Made by kids
The girls made cards for the police and firemen! So adorable!
Candy cane competition
We each competed to see through out the day who could give
the most candy canes away during the day to random people!
Return grocery carts
Simple, but often not done! Offer to take people's buggies back for
them. This especially helps moms with children!
I have a few other ideas that I may share later! For now though I want to make this point... Kindness does not always have to be hard or cost! You can do it by just simply smiling as you walk by people. A lot of times we have things that could help others, but we are just to lazy to do it. If I can remember I would like to buy a candy bar for each cashier as i check out. It is mere change. I cannot express how happy this has made me! I am so blessed. So how can you show love today? Think out of the box! What can you do? Something as simple as a kind gesture can brighten someones whole day. The world is full of darkness... I choose to be someones light! :) What is something you can or have done today to encourage someone? Comment with ideas and what you have done!
