22 Random Acts of Kindness



I turned 22 in November and I decided to do 22 random acts of kindness throughout the holiday season.

It ended up being a lot of fun! I was constantly thinking up new ideas. I was by myself for all of them, so the pictures aren't that great. I also don't have as many pictures as I would like, for that same reason.

I got the super cute printables from Mique's blog here. I just used neon colored paper (cut a little larger than the RAK tag) and glued them together!

Here are some that I did!
  • sent an Edible Arrangement to a coworker
  • bought a coworker's lunch unexpectedly
  • left a Starbucks card for my waitress who was having a tough night
  • left a filled up sandwich stamp card at Which Wich for someone to use
  • left quarters on the vending machines at work
  • left quarters on the little toy machines in the grocery store
  • sent a Starbucks card to a small business owner who resent me a package after the post office lost mine, free of charge! - check out The Printed Palette!
  • paid for an order in the coffee drive thru
  • delivered a basket of sunshine to a woman from church - separate tutorial post coming soon
  • baked & sold cake pops for a coworker's daughter's cheer trip - sold out of them!
  • donated toys to the Toys for Tots drive at my work
  • bought a "share a meal" bag  from Savemart for someone's Christmas meal
  • took cupcakes to my boyfriend's grandparents as a thank you
  • donated $25 to an adoption fundraiser - they have been matched!!! Check them out here.
  • held the door open for everyone I encountered
  • arranged for sandwiches to be taken to the local fire department
  • delivered fresh fruit to the local food bank for Thanksgiving meals
  • donated $100 to become a sponsor for the Choose Joy Conference. More on that here.
This isn't the complete list. I repeated some and some failed. Like me leaving a Starbucks card for the mail man in the mail box. He never took it. :(
Sam (the waitress) posted this on IG.

  1. Love this! Found you on Pinterest and have started following you!
    I always try to let the manager know when I've had good service. I used to work in retail and when a customer compliment (and sometimes a gift from management) was waiting for me at the end of a long shift, it made it all seem worthwhile, so I try to pay it forward a little.
    You've inspired me to start doing more things like this. Thanks for sharing!
