When I was a little girl I found this purse full of money. My friends wanted me to keep it but I figured out who it belonged to and returned it . at first the girl who it belonged to took it and looked very worried or suspicious but she came back a few minutes later and thanked me .

When we moved house when I was a teen my mum offered me the big room and my sister the tiny box room but I swapped with her and let her have the big room

Was out for dinner one eve. I noticed that the waitress seemed tired or stressed. I left her a large tip and wrote 'pay it forward' on the tab. Hope she had a better eve at work after that. And maybe there was a nice ripple effect.

I like to give money to local organizations where I am able to see their work and how they are changing lives of people in community. I do not want to say that UNICEF is not good, but locals are more visible to me.
Also, when I needed financial help during cancer treatment only local organizations helped me.

This is just mine experience.

I was working with a patient who was physically very ill and depressed. She had her head down while we talked and mentioned that it was her birthday and she was really missing home. I gathered a group of colleagues and we sang Happy Birthday to her with gusto. Other patients joined in and she smiled. That was the first time I had ever seen her smile.

A friend of mine lives down the street from her parents. Late one night, right after her mom's diagnosis of cancer, her kids were at her parents and they had a fire. Luckly all made it out but she got awakened at 12 AM with that news. After everyone was put to bed and everyone was gone she called me at 2 AM. It was fine it was a weekend. We talked for 2 hours and I comforted her.

When people are sick at work and need leave time I generally contribute leave time to them.

My mother had always wanted to go to Utah to see Arches and Canyonlands but her husband has bad alzheimers and she wouldnt leave him. So I took them both and wheeled him around in a wheelchair and drove them all over and she had a great time.

What a good friend you are, EmilyFS

I give to 6 different charities on a monthly basis. Charities that mean something to me, that I hand picked. It's a significant amount but funny thing is, I don't even miss it and feel that I get more in return, somehow. My husband (who is very spiritual) truly believes that when you give, you get back ten fold. He will give a Girl Scout money for cookies, but not take the cookies!

At my job, if a charity or church buys something from us, I will often pay for it (which is how one of the charities got on my list).

Once, hubby and I were eating out and I noticed an older couple with, I assume, their grandson. They prayed before they ate, something you don't see often, and for some reason, it just really touched me. When we went to pay for our meal, I asked their waitress for their bill and payed it.

Acts of kindness, big or small, are beneficial for the giver and the receiver. But, I actually think it benefits the giver the most, emotionally.
