The Impact of Random Acts of Kindness: 3 Students' Stories

Rosalyn Kahn has returned as my guest blogger and has shared another wonderful example of Random Acts of Kindness. In part II of this blog she shares her insights in the lives of students within the community in her research on the Impact of Random Acts in the Circle of Life. although school has finished for the semester, it is reassuring to see that kindness continues in the lives of these students who are our future.....
I used to worry about being judged for my acts of kindness or not taken seriously, but after  hearing the stories of others doing it, I knew that if they could do it with pride, so could I. Their stories empowered me to do just that. These are the real life stories from my students who did more than talk the talk. They walked the walk on the path of Random Kindness. I hope their examples of kindness touch your heart as much as they touched mine.  

The best story was Mercedes. She told us about getting back on the freeway  just to take the same exit to give a homeless person money.  The  story warmed my heart as many people do not trust homeless people, but more of  us need to be more like Mercedes and have the faith they won’t spend it  foolishly.


The random acts gives you a great sense of gratification. It not only  enriches one’s emotional experience but also strengthens one’s ability to  communicate to a fellow human being who may be in a different set of  circumstance.

Justine told about a time she took out to listen to a stranger’s problems  over a cup of coffee. She spoke volumes about her generosity she offered to  understand a stranger in turmoil.


I have been able to see the brighter side of life. I have chosen to give  people the benefit of the doubt and been more helping to other.   Each act no matter how insignificant can make a world of difference to  others. Martin

My  favorite story  is how one small gesture can start a chain reaction and  make people feel really good sense of joy in the Starbucks story. It offers hope  for humanity and despite all the bad in the world there are still those who are  compassionate and want only good for the world.

I wish to thank Rosalyn for sharing these uplifting insights with us. Random acts of Kindness can indeed start a chain reaction of positive events that have no boundaries. They can make a conscious shift for the better in our Universe. Make the commitment to make a change. Dare to step outside the boundaries of your box today and share an act of kindness with a total stranger. Take that moment out of your busy life to make a difference. The stranger you help may become a life-long friend on your path to living well and fulfilling your Life Purpose.
