During Random Acts of Kindness Week, we held a contest asking you to post the best random act of kindness you’ve received or done for others. We were so overwhelmed with the amount of entries we chose not one, not two, but four winners! Congrats to the following Skouters who received 500 Points each!
“I spent the last amount of cash I had on me on a meal and gave it to a homeless man.”

“I was standing in line at the store and the lady in front of me didn’t have enough to pay for her items, so I paid for her.”

“A while ago I offered to pick up groceries for an elderly neighbor.”

“Every three months I pack a plastic bin with clothes for the upcoming season, easy-open can goods, a case of water, blankets, backpacks, personal care products, gift cards and a letter of encouragement. I drop the bin off at different homeless encampments in my area. I often speak with the people and offer a group prayer. This is not something I do for recognition but it is something I do to offer a little light in their darkest hour. I encourage you to try it!”

We’d also like to give a shout-out to our honorable mentions!
“I sent some gifts to old friends who weren’t expecting anything just to put a smile on each of their faces.”
“Today I saw a homeless man holding a sign up that said, ‘please help money/food needed,’ so I walked up to him and gave him the last five dollar bill I had then I went home and grabbed some old blankets while my grandma made some food for him and when I brought it back to him he said thank you. After that I felt pretty happy with myself.”
“I go to school downtown and I always see this homeless man. I've kinda adopted him as my Pop-Pop. Every time I see him I always give him something even if I'm dead broke. He's so sweet and a really nice person. I wish I could do more.”
Thank you to everyone who participated! We are truly inspired by the kind acts you do for others; keep it up!
Stay tuned for future hashtag competitions!
