Why: Add positive surprise to people’s routine
How: See what a place might need and leave it there
When: September, 2010
Have you ever been a situation where you desperately need some simple thing and it wasn’t there? Well, I have been there many times, and I decided to help people that might have been going through the same thing.
For this intervention I started to spread, divulge many things that I wasn’t needing but could be very useful to someone else. I offered a video game for free at Craig List, left some coins on a payed machine, a novel book on a Coffee Shop, a Flower on a Bench and a MetroCard on the subway, but this one was used so fast that I didn’t even have time to take a picture.
To each one of them I attached a card saying: THIS IS FOR YOU, EVEN THOUGH I DON’T KNOW YOU. LET’S SPREAD KINDNESS! E-MAIL: THEKINDCHAIN @ GMAIL.COM.
This is very easy to do and sometimes can have a great response!
