Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Kindness Through Simplicity


--by kat94, posted Jun 25, 2022
I was recently moved to another elementary school in order to help out in a few programs. After the first week, I ran into the custodian who thanked me for the most simple task...stacking chairs in my classroom at the end of the day. Something as simple as that makes his job of sweeping/mopping the floors a much easier task.

Here he was thanking me, when it should be the other way around. It got me thinking about little things that I could do that would make a bigger difference for others. Today, while grocery shopping I came across a bunch of poorly put away shopping baskets. I noticed that if they were poorly put away to begin with, people were more likely to continue with that trend. So, as I put mine away, I fixed the stack neatly, which may encourage others after me to do the same.

Keeping my eyes open for more simple acts of kindness!
