Take 2!

"26 acts of kindness","26 acts", "random acts of kindness","#26acts"
I shopped at Sears during my lunch break today, and when I was checking out, a coupon for $10 off a $50 purchase printed with my receipt.  Well, anyone who knows me knows that I love coupons.  I also love helping my friends get great deals, too.  As soon as I noticed the coupon, I knew immediately what my next Act of Kindness should be…

I walked to a nearby register where a woman was in line holding several items of clothing.  I told her that I had a coupon she may be able to use, and asked her if she had at least $50 worth of clothes.  “Absolutely!” she said.  I handed her the coupon, watched her and her friend grin while reading it, and walked off.  That was really too easy, so I hope it still counts. :) 

(This was the other coupon I got.  I didn't remember to take a photo of the coupon I gave away.)

Lessons learned about being kind to others: 

It doesn’t need to cost you any money. 

It doesn’t always take effort and time.

Since I still have 24 acts to go, please help me think of new ideas.  Share your ideas in the comments section.  Or better yet, tell me what kind acts you have done recently!


  1. Find a homeless person and buy them a meal; donate books to a public school ( powers ferry elementary is much in need)

  2. Great idea about donating books to a school! I think I will steal that one. :)

  3. You kind of already did this yesterday... but I was a recipient today of a RAOK... $10 in a Christmas card as I headed out the door at Wal*mart. Made my afternoon, as there was a computer 'hick-up' and the toddler (who needed a nap) and I were there 3 times as long as it should have taken.
