Editorial: Random acts of kindness in Bundy

Editorial: RANDOM acts of kindness, paying it forward, or simply doing a good deed.

It doesn't have to cost a cent, you don't do it expecting something in return, but it will leave you and the recipient feeling good about the world.

When a NewsMail Facebook reader shared their own story of a random act of kindness from a local paramedic, others were quick to tell their own stories.

From people paying for a family's meal at a pub, to people paying for a suspended coffee, to ensuring money that was accidentally dropped was returned to the owner, there were lots of tales of people being kind to one another.

Just last week someone posted a photo of a local taxi driver helping an elderly woman across the road.

That post received 1551 likes and dozens of comments.

And there was a story recently about a gentleman who bought a bunch of flowers and gave it to the person behind him in the queue at the supermarket.

It's heartening to see so much generosity towards complete strangers in our city.
