Random Acts of Kindness
For our Random act of Kindness project we decided to surprise a teacher with flowers, candy, and pictures of her favorite animals. We chose Mrs. Adams because we all like her as a teacher and she was recently going through a hard time. I brought her some flowers, purchased some of favorite candy, and drew pictures of her favorite animals. During advisory we placed the gifts right by her door and knocked on her door. We then ran away and left the gifts as a surprise. Who wouldn’t be happy if they opened the door and found free gifts? We didn’t get to see her initial reaction, but we did know she liked them. The thrill of trying to run away before Mrs. Adams saw was a very fun feeling. After school Mrs. Adams talked to one of our friends Kathryn and said she love the flowers and made a day a lot better. We also found out that Mrs. Adams was having a really bad, emotional day and the surprise completely made her happy. Throughout the day we didn’t completely know how much Mrs. Adams liked her flowers, but after school we saw a big smile on her face and we knew right then she loved them. To perform a random act of kindness truly does make you feel you’ve done a good deed. In our world today, there is not enough kindness in general, so to have the opportunity to do something nice for someone without asking for anything in return is an amazing feeling. Personally we all felt happy that we did something nice and if we got the chance we would do it again. Our eyes have opened and we have realized doing a random act of kindness and really make someone pleased and change their day for the better.
