1000th post, my good deed of the day

Recommended Posts

I sent my daughter to school with extra school supplies today. I told her that they were any student that may not have been able to find/buy everything on the list and to give them to her teacher. Perhaps, a little pay it forward would help lighten the mood! What good deed will you do today?

what a nice thread to start. I try to do a good deed of the day each day. I found that nothing snaps me out of a bad mood faster than doing something nice for someone else.

 

I park in a visitor lot so often my good deed is just giving someone who is lost detailed directions.

 

A great one done by someone else recently was this:

 

a friend of mine is going though a rough time. her mom has cancer for the 2nd time in 4 years. a coworker put a giftbag on her desk full of smaller packages wrapped in tissue. the note said to open one on days when she needs a pick me up. they were just trinkets & chocolate. This friend copied the idea & did the same thing for her mom. her mom said it has been a wonderful thing to get her through a tough time.

 

I've been meaning to put some stuff together to send the friend's mom. things like magazines, a cd of uplifting music, etc. maybe i'll do that today for my good deed o' the day.

I love this idea, I am stealing it!

Great thread! This morning I helped one of the elderly ladies in my building in with her groceries- but I always do that if I see someone struggling.

- I think an actual good deed yesterday was that I helped a man who's metrocard was empty. I have a monthly unlimited and he was foreign and kept swiping it- I was one my way out and swiped him in. He was confused but grateful. :)

You girls are a lot nicer than me.

I guess listening to a telemarketer's whole pitch and not flipping out on them, isn't really a good deal! i have to do something nice now.

I love good deeds. They remind me that there are good people in the world. Today there was a woman in front of me on the subway who must have gotten dressed in the dark (sooo me) and was wearing her shirt inside out and backwards. I gently mentioned it to her.
