Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Being Kind is always a WIN-WIN situation

--by brindlegirl, posted Mar 14, 2016
Whilst at work today a man was selling raffle tickets. He approached a staff member and I and asked if we wanted to buy some. My friend bought one, and I too wanted to help support his cause (he was raising money for sporting club) but wasn't keen on prize. The prize was a trip away to somewhere I'm actually going next month.

I really wanted to help support him and contribute so I told the man I'd buy two tickets and gave him the money. As my friend was filling in his details on his ticket, told him to fill out two more in his name. I'd bought them for him. So now he has bonus tickets. I really do so hope he wins!
