Tell Us Your Kindness Story
RAKtivist: Erica

Over the past few years, my eyes have been a bit more open to opportunities to show a little more kindness to others. An easy way to do that for me has been to compliment someone! You never know what people are going through these days, and something like that can really brighten someone's day! There was one particular time though where I was lead to do something I'd never done before. I was picking something up at my local CVS. There was a young man in front of me who was buying some items and his credit card was declined several times. He was just about to walk out of the store, when I said, "Hey! Wait! Let me get that for you!" He was shocked, and so was the cashier! He thanked me, left the store, and the cashier said, "Wow, I've been at this store for 6 years, and I've never seen anyone do that before!"

Every one of us can make a difference in this world. Change starts with us as individuals reaching out into our own communities and showing a little bit of kindness.
