Acts of Kindness

We live in an age where it's all too easy to believe the worst of people, but sometimes you hear something that tests even the most determined cynicism. The Telegraph is running a story today of a student who found herself in a pickle after a night out. She had lost her bank card and had no money for a taxi home when a homeless man came to her aid, offering her his last £3 for her fare. She refused to take his money, but was so touched by his kindness that she set out on a mission to help him. She plans to live 'homeless' for twenty four hours and has asked people to sponsor her, suggesting £3, as that was what 'Robbie' had offered her in her hour of need.

One act of kindness has led to another, and it's made me wonder what I might be able to do today to be kind to a stranger. This could be a theme for the new year. Spread the kindness!
