Tandem Acts of Kindness


Here is a wonderful email I got yesterday and had to share of a great idea from a fellow blogger:

"A few weeks ago I went grocery shopping with a wonderful friend. She had a bunch of spare quarters in her handbag so the two of us decided to put them to some "good" use. The grocery store locks the shopping carts together and you have to pay a quarter to use them. We decided to "tag" the other shoppers by anonymously unlocking the shopping carts so that they could use them for free. It was quite tricky trying to sneak the quarters into the slots whilst trying to make sure that nobody saw us but it was so much fun! I am so happy to have been part of this little kindness 'tag' team and to learn of yet another way to spread some smiles! We all learn from each other don't we?"

Today's Tip: Don't return a luggage cart at the airport to get back your quarter but pass it along to someone who could use it to check their luggage in at the terminal instead. It will make your fees that you paid at the airport last more than just getting your luggage to your car!
