random acts of kindness week

Yep, you read it right. This week is the start of random acts of kindness week. I just read this in a magazine and I decided that it will be my Monday post. What is this about? If you've read Chicken Soup for the Soul or seen the movie Pay it Forward, you would know what I'm talking about. If not, here's the deal.

Random acts of kindness is a series of good deeds you do for someone you don't know. It could be a street kid, a perfect stranger, a fellow blogger you've never met, or just about anyone who needs help that you can help. No need to overextend yourself okay? These are just lil deeds that you do to make someone smile, make someone's day easier, or make someone's life change a lil bit for the good.

Here's what I have so far.

1) Last week, I was buying dessert in a store near our place and there was a street kid inside who was looking at the marble chocolates. He ws counting the lil money that he had inside his pocket and ordered one. I decided to get it for him instead and paid for it. My point was that I could afford to buy an entiore cake for no reason, I could help him with that teenty lil chocolate.

When the kid left, I heard something which disturbed me. Apparently, he was a vendor just outside the store and when he can't sell anything in one day, his Dad beats him up. I felt so mad. I prayed that the Dad would get run over or something being the b@$tard that he is. Argh! So when I got out, eventhough I had nothing that I really wanted to buy, I got something from the kid. If I could spare him from one day of getting beaten up, why not right? The store clerk has decided that they will be reporting the Dad to Bantay Bata 163 which is an agency that protects kids from getting beaten up or abused.

2) I met a fellow blogger who has become a victim of maliscious lies. Rose is one of the most sensible person on the net and like most, she wants to spread some blogging love. There are people out to get her, saying bad things about her. Please head over there and give her some blogging cheer, hugs, and love. She doesn't know that I'm doign this so just tell her that someone thought of her.

3) I'm thinking of giving a small stuff toy to a coworker at the office, Omar. He said one day that since no one will give him stuff toys, he has to buy them for himself. He's such a nice, decent person that I want to bring a smile to his face.

What acts of kindness have you done?

PS: Plese do spread the word about this. In this crazy world we live in, we need more love and kindess. Please leave a comment and link if you do spread the word out.
