A Lesson in Generosity

Here's an interesting way to incorporate learning in with acts of random kindness, I hope you enjoy it. ~ Kat


My friend and I had an assignment for one of our classes to do a random act of kindness and write and essay about the experience. We were inspired to take the assignment even farther and turned it in to a kindness project to recognize people who serve our community.

We scoped out a number of places where people serve the community in out town. Then we baked (and baked) for 6 hours: cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pies, and brownies.

When we were done backing, we began dropping them off. We went to two fire-stations, a hospital, the post office, the police department, and we even chased down some bus drivers for three blocks :)

Everyone's reactions were just amazing. The bus drivers hugged us and were on the verge of tears. Everybody was so thankful when it was us thanking them for what they do.

Policemen and women, doctors, nurses, bus drivers, firefighters - these are the people who serve communities and they deserve to get recognized and appreciated!
