I fully appreciate this list… if I am living my life the right way it should be easy to accomplish most of them. In fact, I probably already have. But that isn’t the point. The point is to continue these random acts of kindness, until maybe some of them aren’t so random. Create new ones, laugh a little more, etcetera etcetera.
…I need to buy more stamps. :P

I love these :) And I’ll think I’ll come back to this list again and again when I’m looking for both new and forgotten ways to spread a little light. Thanks again Jaclyn :)

The best is to volunteer on anything. I always volunteer on different things and it makes me feel useful to the community.

Ask a homeless man how his day is going?? Probably not well.
#11 by Jaclyn Rae on April 14, 2011 - 8:29 pm
Perhaps. But maybe it would be going better if someone took time to talk with him/her.
#12 by salvador on April 16, 2011 - 4:03 pm
i guess if no one ever asked that, it would be worse

4. Ask a homeless person how his or her day is going.
I have a suggestion. Before you open your mouth and ask that, ask yourself, “how do I think his day is going?” To which, you’ll likely answer, “probably just like every other day: cold, hungry, lonely, and miserable”.
The intent is nice, but this completely lacks empathy. It’s a given that the homeless don’t like being homeless, so don’t antagonize them with inane questions. Give them money or food instead.
#18 by Jaclyn Rae on April 18, 2011 - 4:08 pm
I read the book “Under the Overpass” by a man who became intentionally homeless for a year and documented his experience. He said the thing he appreciated the most, more than someone giving him money, was a person looking him in the eye and having a “normal” conversation. He pointed out that many people treat the homeless population as something less than human.
I’ll edit the statement because I’ve received multiple e-mails about it, but the intent was not to ask “inane questions.” We should treat them just like everyone else and that includes asking how they’re doing.
