Celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Week

A woman traveling to visit a sick relative stops at a diner. Hungry and strapped for cash, she asks for prices for some of the lower-priced items: Soup? Small fries? A slice of pie? She counts her change, sighs and pays for a cup of coffee and goes to the restroom. When she returns, there is a carryout bag of food for her paid for by an anonymous benefactor.   

This is an example of the many random acts of kindness that can be demonstrated during Random Acts of Kindness Week, which is celebrated February 14-20, and beyond.
