A remarkable event occurred to me when I was attempting to buy gasoline. The pump was not reading my card despite several attempts at swiping it and a man walked up to me and asked if I needed help. He actually asked me "how much do you need?" I do drive a 27-year-old car and don't look like a millionaire but I was stunned by his generosity and caring spirit. I said I had the money, explained my difficulty and thanked him. There are plenty of wonderful people in Nashville and this world. Someone who actually needed help has probably gotten it from this fine man. As a cynical misanthrope myself it feels like a lesson I needed to learn.

"Wheelchairs by Wings" On February the 27th, 2013 I received an email from someone asking for help providing a wheelchair for an elderly relative. The request had come from the remote village of Mbooni, Kenya. I met the challenge with the help of 3 total strangers. One donated a wheelchair, one flew them out (I donated one also) and another donated one from a disabled fellowship in Nairobi as they were touched I cared enough to help. http://www.caroncares.co.uk/wheelchairs-by-wings/

I was on my way back to Uni from London and the train was cancelled. I had to go back several stations and then get to my last station by a different route. I got talking to a lady and her son and when she found out there were no buses back to my Uni, she said she would give me a lift back. We shared a taxi back to her house and she drove me back to my Uni. I am so grateful to her. Thank you kind stranger!

My sports team is having a secret Santa this. The girl who I chose wrote this as her gift suggestion.... 'I've been a good girl this year, but I have everything I need, please make someone else happy this year and donate a gift to someone more in need' This has inspired me to join good deeds and make myself worthy of such a genuinely kind friend.

My new neighbor is a 20 year old kid who just left home. We got talking and it turns out that after he moved in his flatmate ran out on him leaving him with an empty home and a pile of bills. He said he was going to have to quit college and move back in with mom and dad. I felt sorry for him because I had to do similar when i was his age so the next day I went shopping. Using some "bargain" websites I know I spent £40 and got him £200 of food and house warming gifts and had it delivered. He later fessed up that it gave him just enough time and space to find a new flatmate who pays their rent in advance so no more running out on bills! To this day he doesn't know it was me.

I travel by bus, It's relaxing and gives me quiet time. The cost of a return ticket for me is £3 but I always pay £1 more for a day ticket which allows me to travel anywhere locally. So why pay MORE? well it's logical when you do what I do and it saves someone else money and makes them happy. When I have done my travels (usually by noon) I give someone else my ticket and because its a day ticket I know they can get to wherever it is they are going and in the process save £3-£4. It might not be a lot to me but it might to them. Also I have now convinced the missus and a number of friends to do the same.
21/10/2013 hatfield/england 21:44:43
Thank you to the man in st albans on the 19th october that gave me his car park ticket as he was leaving and I was parking. Even saving £3 is always helpful and very thoughtful!

Tuesday was a cold day with occasional sprinkles. I clerked an auction sale that was being held outside. As I left my house, I oddly grabbed two jackets. While registering people for buyer's numbers, an older gentleman came to the window. He was wearing a thin, long sleaved shirt. He was very cold, and my heart sank. I offered him my jacket, and he gladly said yes. As the day progressed I would glance around and look for him, but never saw him. I automactically assumed that he had left and took my jacket with him. At the end of the sale, he brought me my jacket and appologized for it having rain on it. He stated 'you are very kind' and handed me $20.

My Uncle and Grandpa were companions to each other. My Grandma recently passed away, leaving my Uncle lonely. I invited him away on holiday with us for my birthday and insisted on paying for his stay. I know he really appreciated the company and being included in our group. He treated me to things over the holiday and is a very kind hearted person. It was nice to return his kindness and for him to receive a piece of the kindness he always gives to others. It was great to see him laughing and smiling again like he did with my Grandma.

I gave a care package to a mentor/friend who was about to undergo surgery. Very least I could do for someone who has done so much for me, and is one of the few people who I can confide in. Since then I've checked up on her via text to see how she's doing.
07/09/2013 Pittsburgh/United States 23:25:12
On my way home, I saw two women who looked like students who were not from the US. Considering they had about ten Walmart bags as they walked through brush and grass on the side of the road, I assumed they were on their way to a bus stop. Since the nearest one was two miles away, I made a u-turn and spoke with them. I live in downtown, which is where they live and attend school. Both were from China and had only lived in the US for two weeks. I drove them the twenty miles home. Although it was on my way, it made me feel wonderful that I made the day of two others just a little bit easier.

I took my children for their haircuts today. While there a man came in asking for an appointment to get his boys hair cut. "I will get paid Friday so I need it to be on Friday" he said. I could tell that he must be living on disability/ssi because he had a deformed wrist & hand. So the lady made him an appointment for 3:00pm Friday then he left. As I paid for my childrens hair cuts, I paid for his also! feels good to do something for someone else!

My daughter, is 11 and she cannot pass a homeless person without giving them something. A couple of years ago she saw an advert on tv about children in need and asked if we could give them some money. I told her it was a monthly donation and that it would cost about the same as her upcoming birthday party. Without a blink she said, "Can I give them the money instead of having a party?" And that's what she did. She opted to not have a birthday party and adopted a child who turned out to be a year older than her from another country. Im so proud of her!

Walking up the stairs, out of the subway in NYC amidst gobs of other people one day, a homeless man wearing a hospital bracelet, carrying a heavy bag, struggled down the stairs while others pushed by him going up. I decided to offer him my help by carrying his bag down the stairs. Once I stopped, another woman stopped as well to help him out. It was a small deed, but showed me that it's totally true - a small act of kindness compels others to jump in and do the same.
23/05/2013 Barotac Nuevo/philippines 04:11:10
Actually I prefer to keep for myself what good deeds I have done. I grow up to understand that life is not easy. My parents thought me to be a good person which is who I am now. Even though I have better life now I still don't forget where I came from. Doing good deeds is a normal routine for me every day where ever I go or what country I'm at. Well yesterday a pregnant woman ride in a bus I have a comfortable sit and the available one I know will be difficult for her due to her big stomach so I offer mine.

This morning I went to my local shop to get milk and eggs, I went to pay for it and it declined, I hadn't checked our accounts and we had all our money in another account, I told the lady at the counter that I needed to pop to my car to transfer some money as my mobile was in my car, when I came back the lady at the counter told me that the lady behind me had already paid for it, I was a little taken back then almost a bit emotional that just made my day its a amazing how the little things people do can make such a difference, I think I might pass it on now.. :)

I was on a line at the pharmacy waiting for my prescription. The prescription was for my migraine medication because I get very debilitating migraines. My insurance did not cover the medication and it was expensive. I sighed when I saw the price and asked the pharmacist to only give me one or two pills. I could not afford it between rent and other bills. She went to go fill it and when I came back she told me that a woman had offered to pay for my medication. She was a strange. She paid 160$ for my medication because she "knew what it was like to fall on hard times." I told her I'd pay it forward and now every year I go back and give the pharmacy money to use for people who are in a similar situation that I was in.

I've recently started a project called "Planted Deeds". Every day, I intend on helping one person by completing one good deed. Like my mother always told me, it is always better to give than to receive. And when you give, you are receiving because nothing is more special than making another person smile.

A group of us were on our way to netball, when we saw an elderly man struggling to set up his electric chair ramp in to his home. We went over to him and helped him by setting it up and bringing it back in once he was inside. He was really appreciative and thankful for it and we all felt great for helping him out.

Standing in line at a food court when a stranger asked if I could buy him lunch, he had his work tools with him and said that he had been working overnight in a house...he looked tired, and I did, even opting to get him a larger and re sealable Pepsi, over the can he ordered to save me money. He thanked me and we went our separate ways it cost me ten dollars...and I hope he never forgets that someone gave a damn that morning.

When her husbands sister passed away her two young kids came to live with us full time. She is now a mom of 10 kids! Three of them are severe ADHD and one is Autistic this would drive most moms crazy but my mom is amazing. She does not get hand outs or food stamps like one would think.

This evening I went to the store to get some things I needed. Behind me in the checkout line was a lady that was away from home visiting her dying mother. She asked if I could give her a ride back to her hotel. Being it is the Christmas season, I agreed to give her a ride. She explained how she had to borrow money from a friend to buy her minimal amount of groceries and some decorations for her mother's room at the nursing home. I told her to put her items with mine and I would pay for them. After giving her a ride back to where she was staying, she couldn't stop thanking me. I simply said you're welcome and Merry Christmas. I had the greatest feeling of satisfaction being able to help someone and make their time of struggle a little easier.

I am creating a project called " Close the GAP". This will be a National day in November where people are invited to Give, Appreciate and Participate with others where ever they are in life. GIVE a smile, a thoughtful text, a sandwich to a homeless person. Show your APPRECIATION of someone's clothing, something they did or are doing, anything. And PARTICIPATE, make connections with others, join in the game to Close the GAP. These acts of kindness generate healthy hormones and changes in your body. So you are in effect Creating Health. Keep you posted about which day it will be!

This evening I was travelling from Leamington Spa to The University of Warwick. My mode of transport was the bus. I waited over an hour, it was 40 minutes late. When it arrived, to my horror, I found that I needed to pay with exact change. Needless to say, I did not have anything close to the exact change. Another passenger paid my �2 for me! She didn't know me, and in all likelihood she will never see me again! I am very grateful for her kindness!

My daughter's friend who was on duty as a fireman at Wimbledon saw an elderly man crying. He approached the gentleman and asked him what was wrong, after sometime the gentleman told him that this was his first visit in 35 years that he didn't have his wife with him as she had died. He was separated from his son and daughter-in-law. Paul calmed him down bought him some strawberries and Pimms and reunited him with his son, when he left them there were smiles in place of the tears!

He placed a thank you in the local press. The article was mentioned to me several times at appointments by people who had read it and i'm quite sure it helped me gain business! Felt good for several days.

08/06/2012 Thunder Bay/Canada 17:18:00
About 2 weeks ago, I was leaving Thunder Bay - I was waiting for the airport bus with an enormous pack, duffel bag, and small packpack. Carrying it all at the same time was difficult, especially because I'd recently injured some muscles in my side. It was a pretty crappy day. When the bus rolled up, I dragged all my stuff over, and then rummaged furiously for fare. A young man in a blue-and-white plaid hoodie told me to save my money, and gave the driver his bus pass. He also insisted I take his seat at the very front of the bus, which saved me having to drag all my things back through the bus. Then he disappeared into the back before I could thank him. He wasn't trying to impress friends, wasn't flirting, just wanted to help. A small but significant act. Thank-you, stranger.

A close friend of mine is about to travel to a remote part of India where she will spend a month working closely with children from a very poverty stricken area, teaching them photography and art. These children have no art in their curriculum at all. She is of course not getting paid for this and is creating a book with their photos and every bit of profit made will go back into the foundation that is helping to get her there in the first place. Awesome!

I've paid for other diners meals at random over the past 4 years. I just select a family or a couple or friends dining together, request that the wait staff give me their bill for me to pay. I must say that I've raised eyebrows almost every time. I insist that it be anonymous. I started this because no matter how much money someone else has this is an act of random kindness.

As my sibling and his family are low on cash right now and unable to treat themselves very often I succesfully convinced him that I had received 2-4-1 offers at our favourite pizza place. I was ordering so he may as well have the free food. When in actual fact I had paid full price for everything. so I collected the food from the restaurant and then drove it to his home, a large pizza, fries and cokes, so Him his kid and his Lady could chill out and not have to cook. He'd never have accepted if he didnt think it was free so I had to bend the truth alittle, but it still feels good. Tasty too. Much love.
30/08/2011 SD/CA 05:56:30

The status started a chain reaction and friends were soon donating to the charity and expressing how great it felt to give. Amazing good deeds spread like wildfire. Love it!

i few months ago my daughters and i were driving down a street in london ontario, where we live. we can to a very large and busy intersection and we were going left. i there were some people crossing and so i stopped and waited. when suddenly my 17 year old daughter said 'mom, mom look' what had her so excited was that this lady in her mid 20s to mid 30s was crossing with some grocery bags in her hand. she some how dropped one and her groceries were falling and rolling all over the crossing area of the street. some guy about her age two cars down waiting for the light to change got out of his car and helped her pick everything up and helped her cross the street with all her groceries. both my daughters left that area thinking that he was a hero.

While paying a bill at a place of business, this wonderful elderly lady approached me for directions to an address. Her son had been killed in a drunk driving accident. Instead of providing directions, I asked her to follow me to the address (as she was not from this area). I took her to the address via many construction reroutes. She told me "may God bless you in all ways!" That was great.

Today I saw something spectacular, I was walking along the road when I saw a men living on the street, he was not begging for money, nor we he requesting. I should not of expected him to, however I was stereoptyping. A little child walked passed the man with his parents when the child dropped his toy, it began to cry, the parents kept pulling on the child, and the toy was left. The man grabed the toy, left all his belongings and followed this family, he had to sprint to keep up with them, and finally he reached them. He gave the child it's toy and it began to smile. The parents were rude and pushed the man away. The man did not get angry, he simply stood there and waved the little boy goodbye. Then, he walked away with a smile upon his face. He helped someone.

I was in London waiting for a tube. A lady with a young toddler and a baby in a pushchair was getting off when one of the wheels got stuck between the gap of the tube and platform. Everyone just stood there or tried to push past her to try and get on the train. I pushed through the people and picked up the toddler leaving the lady free to unwedge the pushchair. She was quite shaken up so I walked with her all the way to where she was going, which was only about 5 minutes from the tube station.

for about two years after a scary incident directed towards me and mine, I became sensitive to crimes occurring. I intervened in about 100 crimes. And the more I saw, the more I was able to see before they happened. Nothing supernatural just keen eyesight and reading of a scene. Never was thanked, never needed it. But if you do good, it doesn't go unrewarded.

I traveled to Barcelona early this month with Someone that I only knew about 3 weeks. who is a transexual who was having significan surgery and he was going alone. I thought it was very sad for him to be embarking on the start of his journey alone, so I got a loan and arranged to go with him. It was a lovely, special time and I am really glad I was able to go with him.
