Stories of Kindness from Around the World

36 Acts of Kindness

--by ohadinte, posted Oct 18, 2014
A few days ago I celebrated my 36th birthday. I decided to do 36 anonymous acts of kindness that day. So I bought 36 flowers and put it on car's windows- with a note that says: "Someone you do not know chose to make you happy.

Please give this flower to someone you love. Happy weekend and safe drive". Actually I wanted to print smile cards, but because we are on holidays -the shops were closed.

So I handwritten 36 cards. I did it with my little daughter and it really made my birthday- a celebration ! -

However, i think this birthday celebration is worth imitating---a good idea. And at this point. I will be buying a very large number of flowers, too. I may have to seek a special market or gardener

I hope you don't mind if i take your idea and do something similar myself - though perhaps not one flower for each year of my life. I woujldn't want to denude the earth of flowers!
