I went to the coast with my wife, 18yr old son and our 2 Boxer dogs over the August Bank Holiday weekend. While we were on the sea front my son and I bought £10.00 worth of tokens to go on some of the rides (waltzers etc)as boys will be boys! Anyway we'd had a few goes on some rides and had a couple of quids worth of tokens left over. I spotted a couple with their young daughter queuing up to buy some for her, so I walked up to 'Dad' and handed him our left over tokens. He was a bit surprised but very grateful for the gesture.  ;)

It's one of those legal things because parking suppliers want to make more money they write "not transferrable" on the tickets and sometimes make you put your car number on the ticket so they know if the ticket was bought for this car otherwise you could pass on your ticket with spare time on to someone else.

Welcome! And Biene ve noo.

I once parked my car somewhere a bit different to normal. I passed it a few days later, and it had something plain under the wipers. I thought it can't be a flier, so it's going to be a ticket isn't it. But it was a note from my flatmate saying "ha ha, scared you" or something like it.

So I reckon a post it note under the windscreen wipers saying "nice wheels" would be a good one.

One idea that I had yesterday whilst walking through a park with a friend...

There was a family feeding the ducks there by the lake and I thought it would be nice to perhaps carry a small loaf around specifically to find a family that were duck-feeding and hand it over to them, especially if they were running low on their own supplies.

Or maybe carry a full loaf and go around handing a few slices out to various families.

It would, of course, ensure a lake full of very fat ducks. :P

I passed a homeless person today who looked chilled to the bone - and not in a good way! As it was so cold, I walked into the nearest Starbucks, bought a hot chocolate and a muffin and passed them on to him. He was chuffed to bits.

You are all truly wonderful!

Sometimes it's just thinking of the small things that can mean so much to another person. Some workmen spent a week digging up the road, all the neighbours were complaining to them about the noise and giving them grief. I made them a cup of tea each and took it out to them....one big burly Kiwi bloke had tears in his eyes he was so touched, said it was the first time anyone had ever just thought to do that for them. Now I'm on the lookout for workmen to cheer up haha, probably get the reputation of being a mad English tea woman!

Don't think i dare do the reverse pickpocketing! Be careful with that one  :)

An elderly lady in the community always saves me the evening newspaper so I don’t have to pay for one. She also keeps sports cuttings for me.  

Also if you’re at a football game – why not take some confetti and give it to a kid?

They’ll love chucking it about when they team scores!

I love so many of these idea's and am definitely going to try some of them out. I always try to be nice to people anyway, like saying thank you to people etc. One thing I did at work all the time was to always say hello and be nice to the cleaners, post room workers etc. I hated the way a lot of my colleagues just ignored them like they were insignificant. I always try and compliment good service too. Basically the things that we should be doing anyway. I have a question though. I like some of the ideas like buying coffee for the next person in the queue and giving out chocolate bars, but I don't want people to think I'm trying to pick them up! lol. Does that ever happen and how do you deal with it? And what do you do if your handing out chocolate, cookies, whatever and people look at you like your mad? I think that would happen to me if I did it!  :blush:

Great ideas!  One low cost RAoK I once did with a few other joinees was to buy book tokens in £1 units and tuck them into the slef-help books in Waterstones along with a lovely post-it note.  Cheering up people who need it!
Imagine fighting the power of the gods with flashlight batteries!  Needless to say, it didn't work, and everyone died.

Seriously, seriously need to remember the power of a genuine compliment!

I got complimented on my shoes today and it made me feel 5 inches taller (though the shoes do that too)

Was having a rubbish day and that gave me a massive boost.

You dont have to tell people they look like dominatrixes though like my colleague did....  :unsure: :blush: :rolleyes:

Just want to say how great I think RAOKs are. It's loads of fun making them up and even funner to do them :D
ANyhow! Here's my contribution:

Write some complimentary graffitti e.g "I think rachael has a lovely smile"
Tell someone you believe in them
Write a complimentary limerick or haiku about someone and give it to them in a n envelope as a present
BUy a packet of mints and offer them to the people you meet throughout your day until the packet is finished.
Leave a note saying "have a nice day :)" in the change slot of a vending machine.

PS The "Free Hugs" idea is hilarious! I hope I have the balls to do that one day:)

love from seb

Last week Saturday I had one of those paper card one-day bus passes and I had finished everything I had to do that day and I was on my way home. I got off the bus and was at the bus stop just randomly talking to this woman who had a pram with the cutest baby inside :) the conversation got started when she had asked me where I got my handbag from and just continued from there and she was talking about all the places she had to go and things she had to do that day like food shopping and going to the GP etc. also she was talking about how expensive things are becoming and the cost of living is increasing but how wages are staying the same. Also how bus fare is so expensive that is why she is walking everywhere to save money any way she can. So I just gave her my bus pass because after all I was minutes away from home and did not plan on going out again and she was really happy. So an idea for a RAoK is maybe just giving away your bus pass when your finished with it so someone else can use it and benefit from it :)

Hi,  I did my first (and last sadly) RAOK about four years ago when I started seeing Holly (who became my wife 3 years later).  I took Holly to watch her first ever premiership football match (Newcastle v Charlton) and, on the way back to the car, I offered to buy a homeless man a coffee.  Me and Holly we're surpirsed when the gent replied "Yes please !! I'll have a cappuccino" - he must have been new to homelessness.  The reply was shortly followed by "Actually, surprise me".
Me and Hol went to the nearest coffee place and jointly bought the man a cappuccino, which Hol handed to him.

It felt really good, however, I haven't done a RAOK since.  I've recently split up with Hol and am looking to this forum for inspiration.

P.S. I'm also a huge "Yes Man" fan (prefer the book) and I'll be looking to that book as well for guidance to get my life going again.  

...Watch this space for my next RAOK.

P.S. Me and Holly are still friends :)

Thanks for reading

Mark

Today I did my first RAoK, it gives you such a buzz!

I took a free discount voucher that you often get in high street stores, waited for a while in the said store and gave it to a couple of students who were worrying about how expensive the products were.
This RAoK is cheap AND it saves the wastage of vouchers that would otherwise be unused...

I'm addicted to RAoKs!


Much love, Joinees!

you could donate old books to your local or school library; schools are often in need of books as long as they aren't too tatty. charity shops are an obvious option. otherwise you could give them to a book bank at a recycling centre.

I donated some books to my school library; the librarian almost cried! It's especially helpful seeing as stretched funds are being slashed even more with the budget cuts...

Keep up the amazing work guys!

This is either a free RAoK, or potentially very expensive...

Basically, the British Council of Capoeira has marked 2011 as a year to raise awareness of this fantastic mix of music, dance and martial arts from Brazil. To that end I"m running the London Marathon in my capoeira gear.

For the free RAoK, could you just simply watch this video I made:
Capoeira and the London Marathon

It will take 2:45 of your life, and will (in my opinion) be worth it.

Obviously, I couldn't run the marathon and not do it for charity too, so feel free to follow the tiny plea at the end, but don't feel under any obligation to do so, times are tough after all.

But please watch the vid so you can see a little of what capoeira is!

Not got any connection to a school, but still get offered Tesco/Sainsbury's school vouchers?

Ask if someone behind you in the queue would like them, or, what the heck, get an envelope, pop to a school near you, and put them through their letter box!

Hello everyone, I'm new so be nice!

As it was friday yesterday and of course, friday the 13th, eek. I made sure to do my first random act of kindness for the Karma Army...

The sun was shining so I bought a box of 6 cornettos, ate one and gave the rest to people I met in the street. One woman turned me down as it was a flavour she didn't like but the rest were grateful. I almost regretted eating one myself as it was a chance to make a 6th person happy but alas, a little bit of selfishness took over.

OK, so having been rather pre-occupied in recovering from complete exhaustion and visiting my Gran on Friday, I didn't get a chance to RAoK.

But... today I went to Waterstones (to buy 'Friends Like These', and also a copy of 'Join Me', as I seem to have permanently lent mine). And I had vouchers to use. Which I did.

But, I had one spare - put a £5 voucher in a self-help book. Felt so great walking out  :D . Brill idea that I read on here  :) .

I'm new to the site but thought i would post some of my favourite RAoKs..
-contacting employers to praise good customer service of one of their staff members, I always ask for the feedback to be passed on to the person involved too.
-taking advantage of offers on bottles of cold drinks on hot days and offering one to bus drivers/ people working outside/ homeless people.
-donating tea/coffee/sugar/hot chocolate/biscuits to local voluntary services/charities/helplines to keep their volunteers and staff happy :)
-complimenting people as mentioned previously is in my opinion the best one, can really make a big difference!!
-also asking the person behind me at the supermarket till if they have a nectar card/ tesco clubcard etc and scanning your points on their card always gets a welcome and very surprised response!

There are lots more but my brain is only half functioning as it's late!

Love the ideas already posted and love that other people are going out of their way to make other people happy :)

I've only just caught up with this thread since last week; funnily enough, this morning I rattled off a letter to Currys about a member of staff who gave fantastic customer service the other day to me; then this afternoon I've sent a box of chocolates down to the ladies that run the youth group, with strict instructions that the kids can't eat them!

I'm a new Joinee (today), but RAoK's are definitely on my rolling to-do lists.  

One thing that I try to do is give my pre-paid parking ticket to someone (although be careful as some say "not transferrable").  

A great thing that someone in my work-place does each year is "Lent Angels" where you pick someones name out of the hat and each week leave them a gift from their Lent Angel.  It can be something like: a poem, a bar of chocolate, some seeds, some handcream.  You'll often see an all-staff email saying thank you to their Lent Angel.  

Someone once stopped by my desk and said "I said a prayer for you this morning".  I don't think they knew what was troubling me, but I did have a big dilemma to overcome.  

"Be generous, and you will be prosperous. Help others, and you will be helped." Proverbs

Have a great week.

I am going to a wedding on Saturday and when I went to the Debenhams wedding list to buy their present I searched for weddings being held the next Friday. I picked one at random and spent a fiver on the happy couple - I left a note too, wishing them a wonderful day and saying that it was from a Joinee - Maybe they'll look it up and become Joinees too!

Calling all dog lovers!

A lovely dog-loving woman living in the Turks and Caicos set up a rescue centre for potcakes (mongrels) roaming the island, often neglected, stray or straving. She has done wonders for the stray dogs and has spent all of her money on this.

Her dog is in desperate need of an operation and she is doing everything she can to raise the money for him.

If you can spare any money at all please visit

http://www.facebook....282904985073239 to read about Bloo the dog and his operation and then go to

http://operationbloo...s-acl-operation to donate.

It would make this lovely lady so happy to see her dog well again.

Thanks everyone

I can't believe a forum like this exists.  This is fantastic.  I just started something that I'm looking to share with a community JUST like this.  The website is http://www.ifoundmoneytoday.com - a social experiment in anonymous giving.  Basically I leave small amounts of money around for people to find for the simple fact that finding money is AMAZING.  Money is not everything, but finding it is pretty cool and that's something we can all agree on.  I'm just trying to bring a little blast of joy to people's day and in turn to the people around them, so on and so forth until $5 has changed the entire world.  In theory anyway :)
