    I gave an old couple a lift to the shops. They were waiting at the bus stop in the heat.

    Tho not sure if it's an act of kindness as they then had to play 20 questions with my 3yo.

    This is a great idea! We try to do this regularly, role modeling is really the best form of parenting.

    I give the homeless lady who sleeps outside DD's childcare $10 every Friday morning so she can get some breakfast.
    Poor old thing walks with two sticks and must be pushing 70.
    So sad.

    Well today I gave up my 100 minutes non-contact time to take a colleague to the doctor because I didn't want her driving and also picked up 100 sausages for our school barbecue even though I didn't want to do either of those things :-) How has everyone else been going?

    I saw the lady from the pound was about to impound a neighbours dog, who'd accidentally got out. I ran out the door, called the dog, put him back in his yard then went and spoke to the lady from the pound. He's such a nice dog, he didn't deserve to go to the pound.

    My neighbours were very grateful, and told me the "owe me," but they don't. I just did it to be nice. They're good neighbours, with two nice dogs.

    I'm in Cape Town at the moment, doing an IVF cycle and im making a point of giving good tips. Sounds a bit wanky I know but when you give someone a $5 or $10 tip which is very little to us but half a day or a days wages to them, and to see their face light up, is lovely.

    Default Paying it forward. Who's in?

    Love it!

    I love doing RAKs for people I know eg baking goodies and leaving them on doorsteps, bringing treats to work, giving people lifts to shops etc. but can't say I do much for strangers short of donating to charities.

    This thread has really got me thinking!

    We were out the front today, working on the car. I noticed a boy out the front of the neighbour across the streets' house. He kept riding off on his bike and coming back a few minutes later. Then he'd wait for ages, but the neighbours didn't come home. I realised he was waiting for his grand parents. It's school holidays and my guess is that they were supposed to be looking after him.

    Poor kid waited ages. I pointed him out to my b/f, he went over and asked if he was ok, brought him over, got him a drink, offered to make a call for him, and had him wait with us for his grand parents.

    That was our random act of kindness for today..
