Tell Us Your Kindness Story
The Kind Friend.

Did one of your parents send you to the store to get something? Well, my mom did. The store closes at 10:00 and we left the house around 9:30 and made it to the store at 9:53. I go in the store and grab what I needed and when I went to the checkout I realized that I forgot to bring the money to pay for it. I send one of my siblings to the car to check if my wallet was in there, she came back running in the store and told me that it wasn't. Our house was 15 minutes away and also the bridge was out, so I would have to go all the way around adding more minutes away. One of my friends was right behind in line and she asked," How much is it?" and I said " it's $5", she said "I have a $20 and I'm only getting ice cream. I can pay for it." So she paid for my stuff. Since we go to the same school I was going to pay her back, but her mom told her that I don't need to pay them back. One day me and my two other friends ride to school together and when we got out of school we went to get something to eat and the same friend that paid for my stuff at the store forgot to bring her money so I told her to order something and I will pay for it. I told her that she didn't have to pay me back since she bought my stuff at the store. Even helping out a friend pay for some things is small act of kindness.
