Random Acts of Kindness

I found this blog called Foster’s Letters. I will quote from there now:

I visited the site of the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation and notice that they have lists to help people and organizations with ideas for promoting the concept of random acts of kindness. Following is a list of suggested activities for individuals.

Yeah, so here is a list of things to do. It is kind of a list of 100 things to do. A list I will refine later.

  • Select some people in your life who you feel need a special lift and send them a gift: flowers, tickets to a special event, or a gift certificate.
  • Stop for a person waiting to cross the street.
  • Leave enough money in the vending machine for the next person to get a free treat.
  • Call or write to someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time, just to say you’re thinking about them.
  • Create or donate floral arrangements for a senior center, nursing home, police station, hospital, or the homebound.
  • Smile and say “hello” to someone you don’t know.
  • Pick up litter.
  • Help someone struggling with heavy bags.
  • Offer to baby-sit for free to give a single parent an evening off.
  • Call someone who has no family nearby and invite him or her to your home for a visit.
  • Surprise someone in your house with breakfast in bed.
  • Compliment a stranger about something they are wearing.
  • Volunteer to help at a school or library.
  • Give your place in line at the grocery store to another person, such as someone in a hurry or a parent with restless little children.
  • Smile and say thank you to the bus driver or toll collector.
  • Hold the door of the elevator, subway, or bus for someone rushing to catch it. After loading your groceries into the car, return your shopping cart.
  • If you play a musical instrument, visit a senior center or hospital and give a brief recital.
  • After reading a book you enjoyed, send a note of appreciation to the author.

    asta va fi unul lung, ptr ca, la cum ma stii, ador sa critic ce este bun, pentru ca ce este bun poate fi (este de fapt) si naiv. asa ca voi lua una cate una, fiindca ma plictisesc

    Select some people in your life who you feel need a special lift and send them a gift: flowers, tickets to a special event, or a gift certificate.
    -special lift….he he…..oricum chestia asta e valabil cat tii contactul cu o anumita persoana, dar da la asta nu am nimic de comentat

    Stop for a person waiting to cross the street.
    -ar fi culmea sa faci altfel, cum ar fi sa stau de vo0rba cu tine pe o trecere de pietoni?

    Leave enough money in the vending machine for the next person to get a free treat.
    -now this is….well this is…stupid. daca s-ar intampla asta gandeste ca cel ce va primi the free coffee nu va pune bani ptr urmatoru….just saying

    Call or write to someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time, just to say you’re thinking about them.

    Create or donate floral arrangements for a senior center, nursing home, police station, hospital, or the homebound.
    -*self laugh*

    Smile and say “hello” to someone you don’t know.
    -eu te incurajez sa faci asta, and please do film the reaction of the strangers

    Pick up litter.
    -please do so…..do it roxo, be good, be kind, pick up da poo poo

    Help someone struggling with heavy bags.
    -vad asta a pe un mesaj gen “help men” or “yo bitch get’cha lazy ass and put a muscle to it”

    Offer to baby-sit for free to give a single parent an evening off.
    -unde erai s unde vei fi cand matusa-mea ma va chema sa am grija de verisorii mei?

    Call someone who has no family nearby and invite him or her to your home for a visit.
    -cuz that is not akward

    Surprise someone in your house with breakfast in bed.
    -what? no sex?

    Compliment a stranger about something they are wearing.
    -:)). ai un comentariu asemanator cu “saying hello”

    Volunteer to help at a school or library.
    -da,pierde-ti timpul liber, ucide-l, necastigand nimic material decat gratitudine si propria implinire ca te indrepti pe un drum bun. kindness…and yes….Naivity

    Give your place in line at the grocery store to another person, such as someone in a hurry or a parent with restless little children.
    -yes roxo do so, de acum cand te vad stand la o coada stiu ca ma voi baza pe tine.

    Smile and say thank you to the bus driver or toll collector.
    -like he cares

    Hold the door of the elevator, subway, or bus for someone rushing to catch it.
    -orice culoare a pielii?

    After loading your groceries into the car, return your shopping cart.
    -this is stupid, tine de educatie nu de kindness

    If you play a musical instrument, visit a senior center or hospital and give a brief recital.
    -free time…bla bla…naivity

    After reading a book you enjoyed, send a note of appreciation to the author.
    -yes, i hope you reach out Dostoyevski for me

    • wow.. comentariul tau e actually la fel de lung ca si postarea.
      here I go:
      Stop for a person waiting to cross the street.
      Se refera la oamenii care conduc, si da, e obligatoriu si de bun simt sa opresti latrecerea de pietoni, dar cati soferi nu trec ca pe autostrada pe centru? Si chiar apreciez soferii care opresc sa trec intr-o zi aglomerata.

      Leave enough money in the vending machine for the next person to get a free treat.
      That’s about not being selfish. Lasi bani in automat pentru altcineva. The point e sa aiba el ceva gratis nu sa lase la randul sau bani in plus.

      Smile and say “hello” to someone you don’t know.
      Asta-i mai mult ca sa have fun nu ca sa fii kind. In romania e posibil sa te injure careva daca-l saluti pe strada..

      Help someone struggling with heavy bags.
      100% sure I won’t help you daca te vad cu tona de bagaje de la gara. O sa merg langa tine though, carand doar geanta mea usoara, chatting and enjoying your helpless face. ^^

      Surprise someone in your house with breakfast in bed.
      People in my house: me, mom, dad, sister.
      People in your house: you, mom, dad, sister
      what? no sex?

      Volunteer to help at a school or library.
      Pff as face voluntariat la biblioteca. tottaly. all those books o.O

      Give your place in line at the grocery store to another person, such as someone in a hurry or a parent with restless little children.
      Count on that, unless te deghizezi intr-o batrana neajutorata..

      Smile and say thank you to the bus driver or toll collector.
      that’s actually a nice thing to do. Si it does count.

      After loading your groceries into the car, return your shopping cart.
      -this is stupid, tine de educatie nu de kindness
      agree, still a good thing to do.

      If you play a musical instrument, visit a senior center or hospital and give a brief recital.
      -free time…bla bla…naivety
      also, a nice thing to do. Dude, lumea ar fi a really freakin’ grim place daca toata lumea ar fi ca tine.

      After reading a book you enjoyed, send a note of appreciation to the author.
      -yes, i hope you reach out Dostoyevski for me
      I do read contemporary authors, you know. And they thank me for my appreciation e-mails.

      Astea fiind zise I’m off to reading my contemporary author book.
