Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Red Light Ripple Effect


--by Hanuman, posted May 19, 2022
On the way into work the other day, I was at a big intersection at a red light. A homeless person was standing in the cold with a sign asking for help. No one seemed to offer anything.

I had some granola bars in the car (as a back-up snack for my kids) and so I rolled down my window and gave a smile and a granola bar.
I got a big thank you and smile back, and then all of a sudden another car in the lane next to me rolled down their window and gifted something, and then another car behind that and a 3rd thereafter with the homeless person dancing in gratitude from car to car. 

You never know when the ripple effects will take you but it certainly led to a big smile on my heart!
