Have you done a random act lately?

Posted by   + Show Post
No one in the station was contributing to our food bank drive so I went around the station and asked everyone if they had any change or a dollar bill like I needed money for a soda. So of course people are pulling out money and when they did I had them throw it in my bucket and told them thanks for donating. I hope they all feel good about their acts of kindness! Have you been random lately?

I am so grateful to a woman who once did that for me as I sat bawling because our flight was delayed one more time.

I never throw anything out this is usable. I always donate.

We just donated our minivan to Purple Heart.  It was an older van but still has some miles left and has no major issues.  We thought about selling it but decided to let it be used for someone who needs it.  They do a lot of things for veterans.

A couple of weeks ago there was an elderly man in front of me in line at Walmart.  HE was short money and looked upset. So, I paid his bill.  He was so grateful and had tears in his eyes.  I am sure he was going through something bad and I was glad to help him a little.
