December 15, 2012

From Anonymous:
I donated $20.00 to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

From Cara Vu:
I came home really late the other night and noticed a driver's license on the side of the road. I looked at the ID hoping the person's address was indicated nearby my apartment; unfortunately, the person's home address was not in Richmond. I decided to go ahead the next day and turn in the license to the police department. In addition, because the person's address was not labeled in this city, I was worried he wouldn't be able to be contacted. So, I decided to go the extra mile and find a way to contact him. I reactivated my Facebook (which was deactivated for quite awhile), managed to find him, and sent him a message telling him I found his license and he would be able to pick it up at the police station near downtown. He never replied to my message, but at least the license was not put in the wrong hands and hopefully he received it at the station.

From Melissa Ligouri:
We donated clothes to victims of Hurricane Sandy.
And made dinner for a friend who just had a baby and suffered complications from the C-Section.
We are also buying toys for a child who lost his home to Hurricane Sandy.

From Marci Spilka Greenfield:
Dropping off bags of toys and clothes at a local women's shelter for the holiday in memory of little Theo!

From Jessika Matheis:
I will be buying gifts this weekend for two children I chose off a tree; they would be my baby's age. Before I do that, though, I will go back and choose a little boy who would be Theo's age. ♥

From Anonymous:
I took out my roommate's six bags worth of trash.

I'm sharing an act of kindness that someone did for me. I use a walker and am fairly ill, so getting out is not easy for me. I decided to go out to see country musician Lee Brice in concert at a small nightclub recently. I had won a Meet and Greet with him. The nightclub was packed and there was no room for me in the venue to stay to watch the concert. So, I planned on just meeting him and then leaving afterwards. He was very nice and I just casually mentioned that he had a large crowd and would have a warm reception for the night. I also mentioned that there probably wouldn't be room for me to watch the concert but that I'm sure he would have a great show. He not only made sure I had spot to watch the show, but it was a spot by his sound equipment and near the stage. His entire crew of people working for him treated me like I was one of their own for the night and all hugged me as I was leaving. One even gave me a guitar pick. This was truly a random act of kindness that I will pay forward to someone else in the future.
