A nice lady paid for our lunch. We were totally blown away. She said we were a beautiful family. So, the next day, I was getting tires put on my van and an older lady from out of state who was traveling alone had a flat tire. We picked up her tab and she was very thankful. Pay it forward ♡♡♡ – Jaimie

I was going into a store at my local shopping center and as I was nearing the door, a young man approx 17-18 years old ran to open it for me for no reason other to be a gentleman. He was just walking by. What a nice boy. Raised right. – Lisa

I’m recovering from major surgery and could not attend my special needs daughter’s high school orientation. My friend made sure my daughter had an aide to attend with her. It was one less worry for me and the kindest thing anyone who done for me. – Cindy

The customers in front of me had several credit cards and debit cards. They were all declined so they decided to suspend their transaction. I offered to pay for their order. I received grateful hugs of surprise from the customers and heartfelt tears from two cashiers. – Cathy

Today I was out and about and noticed a woman and her daughter walking in the rain. The woman was carrying a few bags of shopping so I did a u-turn and asked if they would like a lift. The woman was hesitant but accepted my offer and put her young daughter in the back seat before getting settled in the front seat. I asked where she was going and it was not far to drive but 2km in the rain would have meant they’d be drenched by the time they reached home. read more →

I was diagnosed with stage 4 Follicular Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in May 2004. My youngest child was four at the time. 10 months later, my dad died, and 30 hours after my dad passed away, my husband died. The doctors gave me very little hope of raising my son. read more →

Years ago a group of female friends got tired of seeing other women suffer. We’d offer moral support, maybe pool a fee needed or bus fare home or loan self-help books. We decided to open a bank account and commit to a monthly deposit and opened a rotating lending library in whoever’s home had the space at the time. We cultivated relationships with a local counselor and hotel management to get discounts. read more →

I was diagnosed with Charcot Marie Tooth Disease when I was five. This is a progressive neurological condition that destroys the neural pathway from the brain to the muscles, causing atrophy, weakness, pain and numbness as well as lack of balance. It primarily affects the arms and legs but in some cases, it can also affect breathing and swallowing. read more →

So this happened on our trip to Vermont, on the hike up to Camel’s hump (burrows trail?). With me are my wife, my 7-year-old daughter, 3-year-old son and 1-year-old strapped to me. The weather forecast was great, warm and sunny. It took us almost 3 hours to make it to 3/4 way to the top. Was proud of everyone to make it that far. read more →

I’m a single 45 year old female who has no kids, 2 nephews, a handful of amazing friends and a love of random acts of kindness. I’m also the type of person who LOVES doing her Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve! I shop for everyone and I always manage to get the perfect gift. I battle the hordes of people, searching for gifts (hordes of people who probably need a little pick-me-up). read more →

I went shopping today; I hadn’t wanted to go alone because it can be pretty difficult when you’re on crutches, but I didn’t have any help so used a driving cart. read more →

Kindness paid forward.
I’m going to take a minute to have a proud mom moment. It’ll embarrass him, but that can’t be helped.

My oldest is 18, just turned in November. He’s been working at Pizza Hut for just about a year now. read more →

SorryPackYears ago a friend of mine had a disagreement with her sister that left them strangers. She’d tried to make amends but emotions were running hot and they haven’t spoken for a couple of years. My friend really wants to reconnect with her sister, so she decided to reach out with a beautiful card. – Anon

G’day ripplers! Today’s kindness gesture was accompanied by totally awesome feelings. At Maitland Mall we get out of the car and spot a lady helping an older lady out of their car. I went over and gave her a kindness hamper and told her to have an awesome day. On the way home I posted off ten secret letters to ten families that I don’t know and when I got home, inside my letterbox was an awesome card from the lovely Lisa with some more kindness cards. On the weekend I’m heading to Tamworth and I plan on blessing people with kindness cards and a little surprise. I am so blessed to be showing my kids how to show little acts of kindness to strangers. Life is great and I am blessed! – Amanda
