Ever had a stranger just totally make your day by paying you an out-of-the-blue compliment? Walked up to the counter to find that the stranger in front of you paid for your coffee? You can be those strangers!
The Random Acts of Kindness Group – Melbourne gets together every month or so to perform a random act of kindness. It could be buying coffees for the people behind us in the cafe queue, feeding expired parking meters for another 30 mins, giving away flowers on Valentine’s Day, making jugs of iced tea and giving them to passersby on a hot day, handing out flyers to passersby that instead of trying to sell them something simply say ‘You look AMAZING today!’…
Btw: Have I mentioned that you look AMAZING today?!
You are invited to come and learn how you too can get a bit more kindness in your life, meet some like-minded people, and create some tools to take home with you and get started (all in time for Pay It Forward Day on 30th April).
It’ll be what you make it, but whatever we do, it will be fun, friendly, and random.
Care to join us?
About Alisha Ryans-Taylor
Alisha moved to Melbourne at the end of 2013 from Western Australia and was amazed to find no ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ place-making style groups promoted around the place. Having just celebrated its 1st birthday, Random Acts of Kindness Group – Melbourne is run through Meetup.com and boasts 281 members. We get together and devise and scheme ways to make the world a little brighter for people going about their everyday lives. Sometimes it’s anonymously paying for their coffee, handing out flowers in the street, delivering Easter eggs into their letter boxes, or collecting books for asylum seeker and refugee children to learn English. Alisha works for two charities in international development, and is thrilled to have this outlet to create some positivity closer to home.
