*My* random act of kindness?

My favourite random act of kindness is to occasionally pay for somebody else's meal. Most recently The Kid and I went out for Chinese food on my birthday. An elderly gentleman came in not long after, sat down and ordered a dinner for one.

When The Kid and I left, we paid for his meal too and told the waiter to wish the gentleman a Merry Christmas for us.

My favourite part of this is that I've done this with The Kid long enough now that, at age 22, she randomly does it for other people now too. That makes my heart happy.

Well, I won't exactly call it random, since I worked on it for several weeks, but I did bake Christmas biscuits for 3 beloved colleagues who were too weighed down by family obligations to do their own baking. I made some 8 or so different cookies - according to one of the recipients the amount would have been enough to feed a small town. ;)

This year has been tough for folks. I’ve sent money to strangers, bought a meal for man in the Carolinas, helped a sword class (folks we’ve never met) cover some unexpected costs, send baby furniture anonymously and regular charity. I hesitate to talk about it ( be not like the hypocrite...) but so many are struggling and it terrifies me our politicians willfully don’t see it.

I was in the post office after hours using the "robot" to mail a package and another person came in behind me. She said "I'm going to watch you because I've never done this before" so when I was done with my package, I stayed and walked her through the whole process so she could get her box of cookies mailed.

Does that count?

Also, last year, if I was in a store and had a coupon I wasn't going to use I would give it to someone else in the store.

Both absolutely count!

I once encountered a Native woman from a tiny village who asked if I could teach her how to use a crosswalk. We crossed that street hand in hand.

Earlier this year, I paid for orders behind me at Starbucks.

I did 43 pieces of free art for users who follow my one FurAffinity account.

I do freebies all December long and have for a few years now. I love giving back to my followers like that~

Oh, another one I forgot--

I play games on a site called Pogo.com. Casual stuff--casino games, card games, board games, etc. A couple of weeks ago they released a coupon code to get a free badge album. I already owned every album for sale, so I used my code to gift a random album to a stranger :) No reason to waste the code, y'know? I did the same in 2017.

I guess I should put down here about the raincoat, clean socks, and $20 I gave to the guys sleeping in the doorway at the debunked pizza shop during a downpour last week during my bad luck day.

Two weeks ago I bought food for a homeless woman at the train station. Last week I gave a homeless man my last $5 cash so he could buy himself a coffee.

I had gone to the mall about a week ago and got Japanese fast food. Was waiting for the bus, was going to eat the food at home.

A pretty rough-looking homeless man was walking past, I gave him the spring roll from my food order.

Was at the foodbank a few hours ago.

I'm allergic to egg whites, but I always get a small carton of eggs from them. I always give my eggs away to someone near me in line. A lady with kids got my eggs today.
