Another Walmart Act of Kindness story by a Walmart cashier in Newcastle, Oklahoma. Nick Tate, the Walmart Employee, paid the bill of a woman, with children, whose credit card wouldn't clear. The video is still shot with a Robotic Voice and it was criticized by some viewers because of that. However, we focused on the Act of Kindness carried out by Nick Tate. We called the Walmart Supercenter in Newcastle and spoke to a manager by the name of Kelly. She confirmed the story was true. We informed Kelly that Kindness Works International Foundation has a Kindness Pays Rewards program that recognizes and rewards Acts of Kindness and would be sending a check made out to Nick for $50.00 and some kind cards as well. Kelly told us that they would get the check and kind cards to Nick. Our compliments to Walmart for having this Kind of employee who saw a need and stepped in to fill it with an Act of Kindness. What can you do? Do what Nick did, carry out an Act of Kindness, support Kindness Works and help change the world one Kind Act at a time. Nick, may all your days be filled with Kindness
A Kindness Story
A Waffle House customer contacted us about the kind way they were treated at a waffle house in Duluth, GA by an employee named Ms. Merit Youssef. It seems the customer went to have breakfast with his elderly father. This customer reported that on the way in, his father picked up a pamphlet about working at Waffle and was reading it at the table. Ms. Youssef went up to the table, said good morning and with a big simile asked the father, "are you going to apply for a job here". The customer said they all had a big laugh and further commented to us that Ms. Youssef was the best waitress that ever waited on them. Good employees are hard to find, should be recognized, reported and valued for their kindness and that exactly what we did. As you can see Kindness does work, and we hope Ms. Youssef always has that beautiful simile/ Merit, may all your days be filled with Kindness.

Patrick Hoagland had been laid off a month when he decided to think out of the box and panhandle his resume on a street corner in Phoenix, Arizona. He had a wife and child he needed to support and he was motivated. He passed out many resumes over a few days, one was to a women named Melissa Digianfilippo, Partner and Vice President of Serendipit Consulting of Phoenix, Arizona.

Each was responsible for making their small part of the world that day a little better place.
Actor Keanu Reeves has a reputation for random acts of Kindness. Recently he was in his car on his way to a movie set with Ed Solomon when they saw a yard sign that caught their eye saying:
"You’re breathtaking!" Keanu stopped his car, jumped out and wrote on the sign, “Stacey, You’re Breathtaking. He then took a picture with the family.
This is exactly what we're taking about, Acts of Kindness that creates ripples make a huge difference. Bob Kerrey said this,“Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly, and most underrated agent of human change.”
Keanu legendary Acts Kindness are well known and Speak Loud and Clear
Here's just one example: Reeves insisted that the $75 million he was due to be paid for the Matrix sequels be paid instead to the special effects and costume design team, claiming they were the real reason the movie franchise was so successful. He also bought a Harley Davidson for everyone of the stunt crew.
Keanu Reeves is truly a celebrity whose gift just keeps on giving and his acts of kindness have become a Hollywood legend—with stories of his Acts of Kindness seemly popping up weekly.
We have sent Keanu a Certificate of Recognition for his Kindness, some Kind Cards and a check for fifty dollars ($50). May all his days be filled with Kindness.

Three NYPD officers Lt Sojo, Officer Rivera, and Office Cuevas, were at a Manhattan Whole Foods on July 4th when Whole Foods employees called the police about a shoplifting incident. The officers at the store for lunch responded. They found the woman being detained by security with a bag of food she didn't pay for. In a spontaneous moment the officera responded not with force, but with Kindness.
The Officers story. Officer Esnaidy Cuevas said, “We looked in her bag and saw containers of food, we didn’t see anything else, it was just necessity food.” Lt. Louis Sojo said, “I asked her, ‘What’s going on?’ She told me she was hungry,” We decided that ‘We’ll pay the $35 for the food instead of arresting her. The officers went to the check out with the women and paid for the food. " When you look at someone’s face and you notice that they need you, they're actually hungry, it’s pretty difficult as a human being to walk away from something like that— we weren’t raised like that, it’s the right thing to do,” Sojo said.
We agree and as part of "Kindness Pays Rewards Program", KWI is sending a check to these police officers to reimburse them for the food they purchased adding a bonus and sending them three decks of Kind Cards. At a time when police are quick to be criticized, KWI thinks officers like these should be recognized, praised and rewarded for their kind act. Kindness is contagious and will be passed on, evidenced by our response to their Act!
A Chick-Fil-A Manager Daryl Howard, Changes Tire in Chick Fil-A Parking lot for 96 Year Old World War ll Veteran Who Barely made it to the Restaurant.
SEVERN, Maryland (CNN)- Manager, Daryl Howard, at a Maryland Chick-Fil-A, was quick to help when he saw a customer needed more than his usual chicken biscuit and coffee.
Daryl Howard was taking orders Thursday morning at the restaurant in Severn when a 96-year-old WWII veteran, known to employees as Mr. Lee, came to the register and said he had a flat tire.
"He was shaking, almost in tears saying he barely made it to the store on three tires because one was bad," Rudy Somoza, another manager, told CNN.
Lee barely made it the restaurant driving with a flat tire and was able to park in the Chick-Fli-A parking lot, but had no one to help him change his tire. When Daryl was finished serving his customer he told Somoza he needed to help this gentlemen change his tire. "So, Daryl jumped into action without hesitation."
It took Howard about 15 minutes to change the tire. He didn't know that Somoza was taking pictures until later. Somoza said he's worked with Howard about five years.
"His action of kindness was beautiful. Daryl has always been so helpful to anyone in need and deserves this recognition," Somoza said. Lee came back Friday and was very thankful and had his usual Chicken Biscuit and coffee.
Kindness Works International is sending a check to Chick-Fil-A made out to Daryl Howard as part of our Recognizing and Rewarding Acts via our Kindness Pays Rewards Program. Our compliment to Chick-Fil-A for having kind employees like Daryl Howard who saw a need acted on it.
