Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Just Ask, And Others Will Join

--by dancingDog, posted Mar 11, 2009

I am often surprised by the generosity of others.

I am holding a yard sale to benefit the Arthritis Foundation and have asked friends to donate items for the sale.  Not only have friends given me loads of stuff without a second thought, they have also asked their friends and co-workers for items too.  So we will have a wonderful selection of things for people to buy.

We can encourage others to participate in our kindness acts by just asking.  Often people are looking for an opportunity to do good and just need a little prompting or guiding or leadership.  Just ask!  you might be surprised by what you get  :=D
