✨I was gifted Cocktail perfume as a random act of kindness (RAOK). I’ve never had a black label perfume before, and this RAOK brought me to near tears. It’s been a rough first few weeks of the semester, and seeing someone be so giving and selfless, well I almost broke down. Cocktail smells like if Wash That Man Right Out of my Hair and Fizzbanger/Love had a baby. It’s so beautiful and I’m so grateful for having such wonderful people in my life. Thank you. 💚🌿🙏🏼 | Anni
Got these in an #InPerson deal with @robbybob_e ! The #JohnnyLightning cars were a #RAOK !!! My favorite diecast brand to collect, thanks Bobby!!! And the #SuperTreasureHunt is sweeeet!!! Ya know, I'm a #MOPAR guy, but that JL #Chevelle is sooooo awesome! Go follow @robbybob_e if you like diecast, art, diecast-art, and custom-diecast-art because he's got it in droves!
A sweet little Jizo left to brighten someone’s day! I can’t wait to walk by again to see if someone has found him. You can adopt your own tribe of Jizo rocks from @travelingzenden.
A smile, a compliment, paying for a meal, a "random act of kindness" is a nonpremeditated, inconsistent action designed to offer kindness towards the outside world and we need more of it! All the time, every day. Let's go! #raok
When I was buying lunch today an elderly couple came up behind me in the queue at the supermarket.
As I had only a few items I initially thought about letting them go ahead of me - especially as the man was being pushed in a wheel chair. Instead I had an idea.
As well as paying for my lunch I bought some things for the the foodbank and was putting them in the foodbank box while the cashier put them through the till.
Then I approached the elderly couple and said I've got to do a Good Deed today and it would be great if I could pay for their groceries.
Initially she replied that it's ok - I'd already done a #GoodDeed by putting items in the Foodbank box.
I insisted and said it would make my day and took the divider out from between my food and theirs (They only had a handful of items)
I mentioned to the cashier that I was paying for their items too...she was a bit taken back and asked why I was doing it. Just being kind I replied.
The elderly woman had a big smile on her face. I used contactless and wished them well and off I went.
I feel great doing things like this. (And put a big smile on the ladies face)
It's really simple.
Both their groceries and the food for the Foodbank came under £30.
3 #Tenner4Good well spent!

I’ve always loved the phrase: work hard, be nice. The thing is, sometimes we think being nice in business = big gestures only. Yet when you think about it, the “nice” acts we most remember are the small things someone did for us - a handwritten note, an introduction to someone who could really help our business, a considered and thoughtful DM (not just emojis!) or a “good luck” text before a big event or pitch.
What’s the nicest thing a fellow biz owner has done for you this week?
Me? Soo many! 🙌🏽🙌🏽Thanks for being so ace and so nice this week (& always) @crackersmannix @signedandnumbered @esther.kelleher @christenebarberich @extraordinary_routines @anacastudio @tracyharris__ @_ella.mitchell_ @sophietimothyphotography and everyone else I’ve encountered IRL or on the ‘gram.

Met up with @jays.hw.garage this morning. He beat me and scored two Super Escorts. He handed me one while we were in the store, and then another guy came up and started talking cars with us, and Jay gave him the other, leaving with zero. What goes around comes around. Thanks for sharing! It will be passed on yet again to another friend soon. #legitcollector#raok#hotwheelscommunity#swiftysgarage
Most of the time I feel like a complete emotional mush with a storm of all emotions for every reason under the Sun (happy, sad, overwhelmed, angry, etc). I got all in my heartfelt feelings when a coworker insisted on putting MY dirty dishes in the sink for me. He laughed at me because I happily thanked him as if he'd just given me money. Lol. Yes, I'm that giddy person when I receive a random act of kindness, no matter how big or small. I love kindness. I love helpful humans who acknowledge others. ❤❤ #raok#actsofkindness#emotionallyfeelgood#emotional#tornadooffeelings
There is more happiness in giving then in receiving. I talked a lot about this on my live FB video today for my 7 Day Positivity Challenge. It’s proven that when you serve others, you are happier, have a higher self esteem, feel more in control of life and you feel more satisfied. Happiness consists in giving and serving others. It will lead to a happier and more positive life. Give generously. Volunteer. Give encouragement. One small gesture or kind word can go so far. Let’s be extra kind today 💕✨
Heading off to meet with our Nashville Vet today- all is well, in fact they’re GREAT- just want to touch base on all that’s been going on and Darla’s recent Liver Shunt diagnosis. We need to have a plan in place for scripts, feedback on some diet questions, vaccine or two, and all that jazz. Want to take this opportunity to report to our friends & followers TWO most EXCELLENT news bits. First of all, some of you didn’t hear this (har har) because I said it in a broadcast, but Spanky CAN HEAR. After being told he never would again, two plus months later he can 100%. Hope to get an answer to THAT riddle but in the meantime, we’re so grateful. Next...beyond ecstatic about the new puppy that is Darla after we changed her diet once we had the liver shunt diagnosis. She is playful and so active and when she romps around, mom gets hearts in her eyes. It’s a joyful thing. We have opted at this time not to do surgery because it is sooo risky, and because Darla had a stroke under anesthesia last time. We all know she is a fighter but we’re not throwing her into needless battles if we can help it. You all (wait a second, we’re staying in the south now..) Y’ALL have helped us through the worst of times for so so long and have given us support and love that I can’t begin to tell you how much it meant. (Not just recently but for years and years!) Some days it was the only thing that got me through it- messages of encouragement and caring- time you took out of your busy lives to check in...from good friends to complete strangers..,makes me get a lump in my throat every time I think of how special our community is. Means the world to us and we thank you! I’m so excited right now to hit the share button and send out such happy news for you all. Know that I wouldn’t be so excited if I didn’t have some of the best friends ever to share it with. Love mom, Spanky & Darla xoxox ❤️❤️❤️
Day 6 - Random Act of Kindness
My friend bought me this postcard when we went to the Orla Kiely - Life in Pattern exhibition recently. It was a really sweet gesture. We'd not seen each other in a long time and this is a reminder of a brilliant day.
I'm the lucky recipient of random acts of kindness every day. There are always people on hand to help me walk home from the school drop off in the morning when I'm juggling the dog, the pushchair and a toddler wanting to be free of said pushchair.
And I'll be returning the favour by collecting a friend's daughter from school so she has one less evening in after school club.
We all do our bit to make each others day run smoother.
Our first random act of kindness to kick off the #yearoftheraok was delivering the giving plate to our neighbors with some treats! Hoping they continue the tradition and pass it on. #raok#kindness#passonsmiles
This book has a very sweet story behind it. It just arrived today.
My friend who recently passed used to get a daily call from an equally lovely lady named Dolly. We would put her on speakerphone and Dolly would personalize the daily entry to our names and read the entire passage to us. What a blessed pause to be renewed and uplifted by the reminders in this book! It became a treat that I looked forward to every Monday.
I got to meet her a few short times before my friend's passing At the memorial, I stopped to give her a hug. She told me, "Oh Laura, I've been looking for you. I want to send you a personal copy of Jesus Calling." True to her promise, we shared contact info, and in the days before this arrived, she faithfully sent me photos of each day's entry, and a bible verse. When I told her one day my pre-op didn't go quite as planned, she told me she had been faithfully praying for me - I was on her prayer list. To keep her updated to how God proved Himself faithful.
God has placed some amazing people in my life, and I'm not sure how I got so blessed, but wow is my heart full. What a thoughtful random act of kindness ❤ #JesusCalling#raok#randomactsofkindness#blessings#kindnessmatters
