  • The rounadabout of kindness

    by chelseahunter, over 1 year ago

    I get to experience a little bit of kindness most mornings on my walk to work. I need to cross a road at a busy roundabout and waiting for a safe break in the traffic can take quite a while. Most mornings, however, a kind driver will slow down and wave me across, even though they have right of way, and they usually do it with a smile. It lifts my spirits because it's such a simple, lovely and considerate interaction I get to have with a different stranger each day. I make sure I give a smile and a... Continue reading

  • Christmas spirit

    by BlackFish, over 1 year ago

    One of my earliest memories is attending a village Christmas carols with my mum when I was three or four. At the end of the concert, Santa appeared and started throwing lollies out to the crowd. I didn't get lollies very often and I really wanted one of those lollies. If they came from Santa they must have been special. 

    Mum tried really hard to get one, but there were too few lollies and too many quick hands. We were too far away from Santa. I was devastated and in tears. A few minutes later, an older man approached me,... Continue reading

  • A simple hello

    by amather, over 1 year ago

    I would like to say thank you to the man I pass a few times a week on my walk to work and school.  Most mornings I leave the house with my three children pretty rushed and frazzled...about 3 blocks into my walk, I pass a lovely friendly gentleman who always says hello and makes a cheerful comment as we pass.  Its at this moment that I realise my grip is a bit too tight on the stroller, I have been holding my breath and my face is stuck in a permanent scowl!!  His simple gesture of saying hello...

  • Checking if I needed help

    by gemma, over 1 year ago

    Only yesterday I was reversing out of a car spot in a shopping centre car park when I realised that the ute parked next to me had pretty much parked up against my car. I got out of my car to inspect that no damage had been done and a man walking past asked me if I was ok and needed any help. I wanted to thank this man for making time to check if I needed help.

  • The kindness of kids

    by Simon M, over 1 year ago

    We were out to dinner one night with the family at The Spot, and my 7 year old son was given $10 from his uncle to buy whatever he wanted.  As we left the restuarant we passed a man sitting near the bus stop who looked a little down on his luck.  My son stopped, looked at the $10 note in his hand, then turned back and without telling us what he was up to, offered the stranger his $10.  The stranger smiled and politely declined, but we couild see he was clearly touched by the gesture - as were we! ...

  • How kindness comes back.

    by MorganC, over 1 year ago

    Not being the most romantic of guys i realised i had not given my wife flowers(she actually pointed it out) in a very long time. $40 bucks later and a note professing my appreciation for her and all she does for us and im all set. But instead of just putting a smile on her face she makes me feel awesome by telling me how i didnt need to give her flowers as i am already the best husband she could ever have and that she appreciates all that i do for her and the kids and am an awesome father.

  • Jackpot of kindness

    by hockeysticks, over 1 year ago

    At a recent night out with work colleagues trying our hand at a bit of pub trivia, we were a little shocked to find ourselves in joint first place. The next round was a ‘fall hard, fall fast’ round of heads and tails, with the overall winner taking home the jackpot of $100 and the loser getting, well, nothing. The tension in the room was palpable as the contest came right down to the wire and it was just me and another girl left standing…. My spirits soared as I dared to believe I might be the winner, the taste... Continue reading

  • Kind Marcellin boy

    by katem, over 1 year ago

    I was waiting to turn onto Avoca Street from Milford Street yesterday and I saw a Marcellin boy on his way to school give a sandwich to a man sitting on the footpath (the man appeared to be homeless as he had a pile of possessions in plastic bags with him).  It was a very kind gesture.

  • Feel good moment

    by carlos, over 1 year ago

    Hi friends. Some low creature had attempted to steal a 25 Horse Power motor from a boat on Franklin Street Matraville and stashed it in the bush area of Franklin Street on the outskirts of the horse paddock. 

    I saw it when my dog stopped to have a piddle. I pulled it out of the bussh and stood it upright on the trolley it was atteched to. I called Maroubra Police who said they would attend. A young bloke then approached me and said he knows the owner. 

    I then contacted the police back, the young guy spoke with the... Continue reading

  • non judgement

    by Sand, over 1 year ago

    I was walking down a street, where I witnessed a gentleman giving a meal in a bag to a homeless person, and some change. What I saw was not the kindness in the giving of food, but the act of enjoying this moment of helping another being. This encouraged me to then also do some acts of kindness. 

    I've purchased flowers and chocolate and gave them to strangers just because it felt so good to see joy in another person.
