Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Pizza and Generosity Delivered

--by Tara23, posted May 19, 2012

I received my "smile" cards in the mail on Friday and was thinking all week what my first "act" was going to be.  There is a local pizzeria that my family frequents, and it gave me an idea. 

My 10-year-old daughter and I went there Saturday afternoon. I asked the person working if someone had called in an order for pick up or delivery.  He checked and he said that there was a delivery going out in a few minutes for a party at a home.  The order was for two pizza's and a few slices on the side. 

I asked him if I can pay the bill and he said,  "WHY?"  I explained it to him, paid the bill and asked him when they delivered the food to please just give them this card. He said he would comply and he thanked us for being kind.

On the way home, my daughter and I were talking about what kind of party it was.  Maybe it was a kids party, or some kids getting together to watch football. We talked about how surprised they would be.. My daughter turned to me and said, "Mom, wouldn't it be cool if they took that card and did something nice for someone else?"  Ah ha!.  EXACTLY the point. 
Thanks for reading my story.
