Following the excitement of being in Tay F I went for lunch with my mum and dad at a nearby cafe. M
Finishing up, I asked my mum if she had spotted anyone who she would like to give one of my envelopes to. She instantly picked a young couple sitting behind us.
So…in my usual style…I approached them, excused myself, gave them the envelope and walked away quickly before they could ask me any questions.
It still gives me that magical feeling…spreading kindness around like glitter and making strangers smile.
We left the cafe and I thought nothing more if it, other than hoping the envelope had brought them a smile.
But, as with my other acts of kindness…these recipients tracked me down. This time making a donation to my justgiving page for Macmillan Nurses, following my Facebook page and sending me a message saying that they wanted to spread the word.
And not only that…but they intend to pay it forward with their own random acts of kindness and are encouraging others to do so too!!
A few days ago myself and Alicia Cork were having lunch in Dundee when a lady approached us, gave us this envelope and then promptly left. Confused at first, we opened the envelope and inside was £20 to pay for our lunch, we were totally taken aback! On the other side of the envelope was the name of a website and after looking on the website, we discovered that the lady who generously gave us this envelope is suffering from stage 4 ovarian cancer. She has an online blog where she not only seeks to raise awareness for ovarian cancer, but also spreads positivity through kind actions like these. We were completely taken aback by her generosity, kindness and positive attitude in the face of adversity and because of this we have happily donated to her cause and will in the near future spread the “Random act of kindness” in the hope of bringing the same joy she gave to us, to other people. Whilst we aren’t suggesting that everyone go out and give £20 to random strangers in restaurants, it would be super amazing if anyone else could donate anything at all to her chosen charity, or even just check out/share her truly inspirational blog. 🙂 thanks!

Oh I LOVE the feeling this gives me!
Let this be a reminder to us all that, regardless of what we hear in the news, there is still some good in the world and if we work together, just maybe, we can let that goodness, positivity and love grow!
Love and light, Fi xxx
