Teaching Random Acts Of Kindness
--by jacqueline, posted Sep 28, 2007
I shared with a friend my discovery of this wonderful website and she was very inspired to join the "club". I gave her the link to the website and some smile cards to get her started.
That weekend we attended a local function together but travelled in our own vehicles. It was prepay carparking so when I stopped to pay for my carpark I handed the attendant an extra $5.00 to pay for my friend (she was following behind me).
I explained to the attendant about paying it forward and asked her to pass on a smile card to the car behind me. The attendant was moved by my generosity and couldn't wait to pass the card on.
As I drove off and glanced back in my mirror, words cannot explain the joy on my friends face and also the car park attendant!
When we parked our cars, my friend was so grateful and I replied "You've just been tagged, that's how you play the game! Don't forget to pay it forward!".
That was a good idea. I have done the same with my sister she is also the member with this wonderful website and I have sent a couple to mail to my friends who live far off and requested to donate there skill as they are really good in sketching, music etc.
Hope that this family gets bigger and better with the ideas we share each passing day.
