#WATWB – Random Acts of Kindness from Strangers

Random Acts of Kindness

 

We are the World Blogfest

 

Another month is coming to an end, and once again it’s time to participate in the #WATWB – (We are the World Blogfest), where we share something we’ve come across that demonstrates a random act of kindness. If you’d like to participate and add a post about something inspirational, you can find the link at the end of this post to add your own.

 

I found this article on Facebook. A stranger leaves hand-knitted scarves in a park in Vermont for anyone to take if they’re cold. What a beautiful gift for someone in need, someone who is cold and maybe cannot afford the proper articles to stay warm against the elements.

How often do we pick up our knitting needles with a project to keep ourselves busy, or just to relax, with no intent of giving it to anyone, just knitting for the sheer pleasure and relaxation? So if you find yourself with extra knitted projects locked away in a drawer, perhaps you’ll consider leaving them somewhere, or donating them to a place where people in need can access them freely. *And don’t forget to attach a tag if you leave your gifts in random places to let people know it’s okay to take them.

  1. Hi Debbie – fascinating to see what can be done with extra time and extra wool and a little forethought about how to promote the idea … love it – and now it’s the right time of year – cheers Hilary

  2. I love these ideas. Two really cool things I’ve seen shared lately are little food pantries in small little houses that resemble Little Free Libraries but with can soups and grocery staples for people who are in need of something and don’t have any money to go to the store. I also saw feeding/watering systems set up for stray dogs so they wouldn’t starve. I love these things especially since there is so much bad stuff going on in the world today.

    1. Oh those are such wonderful gestures. Thanks for sharing that Lana. I have noticed many coffee houses here in summer leave out dog bowls of water for patrons who sit outside with their pets. Common sense really, but a lovely gesture. 🙂 xx

  3. One of the things I like most about this is that the giver doesn’t require any recognition or thanks. They simply see a need and meet it, and may never see the result but are content in knowing they did a helpful thing.

  4. Great share! I’ll have to come up with something else of my own creation to give–free books doesn’t do much for keeping people warm or fed. I’m not sure I’ve ever even picked up a pair of knitting needles. 🙂

  5. I’m always touched when I see a RAK. My family and I give and help whenever we can. Any kind act, small or large, makes this world a better place. I LOVE this idea. ❤️❤️❤️ Will pass it on to friends and family who crochet.

  6. What a wonderful person to be doing this. I am especially grateful for creative minds leaving hand-knitted scars right now, as I’m feeling a tad chilled myself. Almost time to turn the heat on!?

  7. Oh this is such a nice act of kindness that you’re highlighting! I also heard about people wrapping scarves around trees in the downtown area here for homeless people to take as they need. Kindness makes this world beautiful.
