I performed an act of charity towards a family member -

The specifics will remain private. ---Hopefully the act will allow them to pay it foward one day as well.

One simple act I found fun is the "stealth Amazon wish list" purchase. Find an item on a friend's list, stealthy ask about it..."Have you ever read or seen ___?"

If not, purchase. A few bucks out of pocket, and a fun way to do something nice.

Fantastic. Doesn't even have to be charity, a random act of kindness qualifies.

That is a cool idea. One I like to do, occasionally, especially if I know the waitress has been having a bad day, is to leave an extra $20 with the tip. Don't do it often, but when I can I like to. If I find out she is a single mom, especially this time of year, I try to do some extra.

How about the little things:

--Saying "thank you."
--Doing tasks without complaining.
--Pointing out something nice that others do.
--Being patient with others.

All these things can brighten a day.
