When my son was a baby, we were struggling a bit. I was working full time but Daddy had been laid off right before Christmas---I came into work one day and found Christmas gifts wrapped on my desk and an envelope with a Christmas card--it was signed "from Santa, so baby can have a merry first Christmas. There were toys and clothes for my son, and clothes for both me and my hubby, along with $100 gift certificate to a grocery store!! I never did find out who at work was 'responsible' but I guess that is the true meaning of a random act of kindness--the recipient need not know who bestowed the act...they just need to know that they were thought of.
