Tell Us Your Kindness Story
Avalanche of Kindness

Over spring break, I did an act of kindness for my neighbor. My act was actually completed after my neighbor did an act of kindness for me. On Easter, my sister and I received chocolates and candies from our neighbor. Never before have we received anything from this neighbor and we've lived in the same house for four years. It was truly a random act of kindness. I decided to write my neighbor a thank you note for the kind gift she gave us and, in return, gave her a chocolate bar from England. She was very happy that I made the effort to write a thank you note and said she didn’t expect anything in return. It made me happy that she was happy with my random act of kindness just like I was with hers. Now everytime I see her outside we wave and say hello which we did not do before. Sometimes I bring in her garbage cans or collect the newspaper if it's out on the driveway. This just shows how one act of kindness can lead to many more and how a little kindness can go a long way.
