Spontaneous Giving

I love spontaneous acts of giving. Especially when everyday people are surprised by the act of kindness.  Unexpected love shows up in all kinds of places and I'd like to share with you some of these acts that have been happening where I live.

Earlier this year, a kind hearted man bought 500 coffees at a national coffee chain and gave them away.  His generosity sparked a chain reaction of coffee gifting across the country.   How cool is that.

In September quilters donated nearly 350 quilts to help residents who were affected by the flooding in Alberta this summer.  I'm sure they feel the love of the person who made it every time they snuggle up in their hand made quilt.

This week, WestJet Airlines surprised the guests on two flights with gifts at the luggage carousel.  The video of he event has been hugely popular on You Tube this week.  If you haven't seen it yet.  Be sure to check out WestJet's Christmas Miracle.   It's just awesome.


I hope these acts of kindness inspire you.

  1. That was really lovely... even though I know it is great marketing it still brought tears to my eyes! Thanks for sharing it.
