I got some little laminated cards from help others.org years ago. Cards say on front, "Smile. You've been tagged! Experiments in Anonymous kindness is the name of the game, and now-you're it 🙂

Then on back of card it says, "Someone reached out to you with an anonymous act of kindness. Now it's your chance to do the same. Do something nice for someone. Leave this card behind. And keep the spirit going! "  So, I got some crispy, new $2 bills from the bank and taped the card to the front of them. Left them in random places in the town that I live. I had left one in the row of shopping carts at the local grocery store, where people can place their coupons, by the handle. Usually, I never get to see who picks them up. But, that day, I was at the checkout, and I look over at the carts, right when this guy picks it up! He looked a little confused at first and then I see a nice smile on his face. I love to surprise people, with little random acts of kindness and to make them feel Special!
