Neighbor's Lemonade Fundraiser

When 8-year-old Johnny Karlinchak saw his neighbor's house crushed by a 60-foot-oak, he ran to his piggy bank and emptied its contents into his neighbor's hands.
Unfortunately, the $1.25 would not cover Elissa Myers' $500 deductible so Johnny took to what he knew best -- selling lemonade -- to cover the deficit.

Re: Beautiful places & moments around the world

Diana Perez wasn’t sure what to think when a stranger approached her inside a store at the mall Wednesday.

“Who’s that guy? He wants something,” Perez thought.

The stranger was Jeff Washburn, general manager of Asheville Mall in Asheville, N.C., who was spending part
of Wednesday morning randomly approaching shoppers as they prepared to pay for their items.

Washburn offered to pay for a portion of Perez’s purchases as part of the mall’s “Random Acts of Kindness” program for the holidays.

“It’s kind of a way to give back to our customers who do so much and shop with us during the holidays,” said Washburn.

Washburn handed each shopper he approached a card encouraging them to “pay it forward” by doing something to help someone else this holiday season.

Re: Beautiful places & moments around the world

Oprah Winfrey has helped make paying it forward popular and now a Rhode Island teen's act of kindness has led to the creation of the Metta Students
Foundation. Metta means love, compassion, kindness, empathy, and caring and now the Metta Students Foundation will honor high school students who share
metta by giving them one thousand dollars. Founder Norm Kelly decided to create the Metta Students Foundation after learning of the inspiring story
of Stephen and Tayler

Stephen Carroll of Johnston, RI has lived his life in a wheelchair, born with Cerebral Palsy. His family raised him to be independent and through
the years Stephen has overcome many obstacles. Come senior year he wanted to go to his prom but it looked like that would be one obstacle to get
in his way.

But when 16 year old Tayler Boardman-Kelly a junior from North Providence, RI heard that Stephen had no one to go with she wanted to be his prom date.
“I worked at Stephen's school and asked some of girls to see if they would include Stephen in their group,” says Kaolin Boardman, “but no one came
forward, disappointed I shared that with my family and without hesitation my daughter said she wanted to go with Stephen.”

“I thought about how I had just gone to my prom,” Tayler tells this Examier, “and how much fun it was and how I would have absolutely hated it if
I didn’t go.”

If you ask Tayler she will say her gesture is not a big deal, but this act of metta went viral. When students at Stephen's school found out
he was going to prom, they became inspired and spread even more metta. Unbeknownst to Stephen they created the Stephen Nation Twitter account urging
fellow students to nominate Stephen Prom King. Nearly everyone voted for Stephen.

“Prom night was the best night of my life,” says Stephen, “the whole senior class was chanting my name, it was a moment I will never forget.”

Re: Beautiful places & moments around the world

all started when Anne Herbert scrawled the words, "practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty," on a place-mat in 1982.
Since then, we’ve seen bumper stickers, a book of stories (Random Acts of Kindness) and of course the movie, ‘Pay It Forward’.

Here in Waterloo Region, Deb Ritchie of The Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation (KWCF) experienced an epiphany when, out of the blue one day,
she was approached by a stranger, who offered her a full day parking pass. She vowed she would pay the ‘random’ act of kindness forward to someone else.
With The KWCF’s focus on creating a more empathetic and connected community, Random Act of Kindness Day® was born. The Kitchener-Waterloo community
rallied behind Random Act of Kindness Day®: Schools, businesses, religious sects, retailers, membership organizations, and individuals have created
unique and innovative ways in which to connect with their fellow citizens.

The KWCF has high hopes that Random Act of Kindness Day® will grow to become an annual, national event. After its first year in Kitchener-Waterloo
and area, other communities have started Random Act of Kindness Day® in their hometowns.

I think MTF could use some random acts of kindness at times!
