Time to Spare for Kindness

Do a deed of simple kindness; though its end you may not see, it may reach, like widening ripples, down a long eternity." -- Joseph Norris

Idea of the Week

"I have just done something out of the ordinary, and it felt fantastic. I found myself with a couple of hours free and nothing to do so I decided to go to a low cost supermarket and made up three bags of food costing about 10 pounds each. I then proceeded to drive to a very deprived part of my town. I knocked on the three most shabby looking doors and waited. Once the door was answered, I simply said: "I know things can be hard sometimes and we all need a little help, I hope this comes in handy." I handed over the shopping, smiled, turned around and walked away. The look on the people's faces was priceless. The food fed the people and the gesture fed my soul."

  1. What a wonderful story. Everyone needs to do more of this. Next Christmas, I am not going to give many family gifts. Going to find needy children and families that can use it more.


Looking forward to seeing how you made a difference today!
