  1. My random act of kindness was helping my teachers with some of their work. On Friday afternoon, I had to stay at school during 6th period so I decided to go see my English teacher from last year and I helped her grade vocabulary tests. She was so happy to have a helping hand, and to have someone to talk to and make jokes with. Helping her with her paperwork not only gave her less to do, but also allowed her to spend more time with her fiancé and her pets over the weekend and enjoy it more than she would have given the vocab tests.

  2. I work at a bakery, so for my random act of kindness I decided to hand out free cookies to some of our customers. One time I did so that stands out in particular was when a woman asked for a chocolate chip cookie. I handed it to her and said “free of charge”. She was genuinely surprised and thanked me for my generosity. As she was walking out, I heard her mention to her friend how nice it was that I did that. I’m sure it improved her night a little bit, and it did improve mine as well because it was nice to bring some joy to someone’s day. The best reactions were always from kids ecstatic to get a free cookie. Most get these wide smiles that are really adorable and mumble an awkward “thank you” before running away. Especially as a kid I think moments like that (especially free cookies) can be a little magical and leave a lasting impact. Hopefully acts of kindness like the ones we’ve been doing are able to inspire younger generations to do the same!

  3. Hola! So I wrote little notes that I attached to pens that I put in the choir room for people to grab if they needed a little encouragement or even just a pen. At first not many people noticed so I asked my friends if they would take one and they really seemed to enjoy them, it made them laugh and smile. The past couple of days I’ve seen less pens and I really hope that it helped someone out. Really my only goal was to make at least one person smile. I think there are still more left so please grab one! ❤

  4. Since my mom is always out of town for business trips, my grandpa has always taken it upon himself to help out my family in anyway he can such as going out to buy groceries, doing laundry, or making us dinner. In recognition of this and all of the hard work he has done so that my sisters and I never had to worry about anything other than schoolwork, I decided to do more nice things for him that would make his life easier. I have been making dinner and planning out meals, so he would no longer have to worry about it. Also, because he loves listening to music, I also set him up with a spotify account that would allow him to do this more simplistically and conveniently. I hope to continue doing more things like this in attempts to be more like him and always put someone else’s needs before my own.
