Random acts of kindness – my first update

Earlier this year I wrote about random acts of kindness for 2017. I talked about what I wanted to achieve, and why. I also spoke about a few of the ways that I have already carried out some random acts of kindness. This year I’m having a super positive year. I’m being kind and considerate and I am trying to make a conscious effort to be good to others. I’m looking for opportunities to help people both online and offline. I’ve got a few more surprises in the pipeline for the coming months but here is a random acts of kindness update from me!

Random acts of kindness 2017 - A selection of my favourite random acts of kindness related quotes

Some of the random acts of kindness that I have carried out since my last post

Donated to the food bank via Tesco

Donated to local hospice (St Clare Hospice)

Gave money to a singing busker

Popped some money in the hat of a juggler

Gave a stranger the extra money when they were short at the till in Sainsburys

Gave away some items that I received to review but don’t have a long term use for

Donated a bag of baby clothes to charity

Tracked down a stranger online who had won The Selfie Lottery – she was thrilled!!! She sent me a message that said ‘Thank you so much! You are so kind to tell me! I never win anything!’. This was a great little random act!

Took a cake to my friend after she had biopsies to see if her cancer has grown (3 candles = 3 nasty biopsies without anaesthetic!)

Started collecting brand new baby items for a friend of my brothers (three items so far!). New baby sleep essentials are a must for any parent!

This is just a selection of some of the random acts of kindness I have carried out. I have been trying to ensure that I keep a note of them, just for myself. It makes me feel really proud to look and see that I have carried out lots of acts for others. I’m in a really fortunate position in my life and being able to share that with others, even in small ways, makes me feel proud.

If you enjoyed this post I’d love it if you could pin it on Pinterest!
