Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Kind Bomb!

--by kiwicat, posted Jul 20, 2015
At my previous work-place we had a really dreadful boss. It made for a united staff! One of the things one of the teachers used to organize was a 'kind bomb' and if a teacher was unwell and away for a period of time, or who was struggling with difficult times, this teacher would send out a message and keep a box in her room.

All the staff members would contribute something - a magazine, chocolates, food items, write cheer up messages of encouragement, bathroom products, and vouchers, items as big or small as people could afford.

It was funny that sometimes the teacher who it was meant to be for would find out there was a kind bomb going down, and contribute to not knowing it was for them! Lol. There was a presentation, hugs, tears, and it was a beautiful and easy thing to do.

When the teacher who organized it originally left, I took it over and it was humbling knocking on a colleague's door at home, or visiting hospital and see the look of shock, joy and how much it meant to someone who needed a boost.
