Day 6 of the 31 Day Blog challenge is all about your last random act of kindness.
My last random act of kindness was to leave some coupons that we would not need on the shelves the products while at the store. I know that I love finding these when others leave them so it is great to pay it forward.
I would like to find some more unique ways to randomly help out others. We are fairly regular about helping out food banks, donating items we don't need or stepping up by sending gift card to friends in need or helping out with community organized fundraisers/donations when the opportunity is there. I like the idea of surprising someone unknown too though. I am currently sorting through my coupon stash as I know a young family who is trying to save money and we have a bunch again that we won't use.
I remember one time when I was in a department store with my kids and there was an elderly couple asking a sales associate where they could find the recordable story books (Hallmark type) and the salesperson stated that they didn't carry them.
Having overheard the conversation and knowing that the store did indeed carry these items in the children's section about 15 feet away I went over and suggested they follow me that I would show them where to find them. If you think about heading into a children's toy aisle it can be a confusing place to find a toy for a child especially if you don't have any children yourself or are a senior citizen.
So go ahead, surprise someone and make their day by doing something special.
