Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Gift Bags Are Awesome. ^_^

--by AiyaZaynab, posted Jul 6, 2007

My friend usually runs out of money for food at the end of the month, she doesn't make that much money, and her sister is staying with her the next two weeks. So as I was filling up a bag of boxed foods I know she likes, I thought, hmm... I should add some surprises! So I added a couple books, envelopes with stamps and paper because they like to write letters, bracelets, necklaces, and some other random things. They loved them, yay! It actually made me a heck of a lot more excited just giving the bag to them than if I had gotten a bag myself.

Sometimes I feel bad writing these stories, because I don't believe it's right to talk about your good deeds. But I know it's a good way to give ideas to people (and I know myself how hard it is to think of nice things to do sometimes), and it's nice to be able to read a story and say, "Hey, there's something I can do!" lol. Yeah. So continue writing your stories, even if you feel bad, because it gives the rest of us kindness ideas!! =D

Keep in mind that depending your intentions of why you are sharing your good deeds is where it makes the difference. Why are you telling them. to brag, to appreciate, to share, to inspire, to emulate etc. Think of the reason then you decide whether is goo to share it or not. But please keep sharing your ideas. :) kudos for u.
