I don’t think I have ever done anything kind.
But if I have, then maybe it was take small honey cookies and pretty peckalach to old ladies in nursing homes Erev Rosh Hashana and wish them a good new year with my little girls in tow.
Once a lady who stopped to ask me for tzedakah and I took her on a shopping spree for everything she needed from the market to pampers. I had to stop though when it was obvious she was really taking me for a ride after she started down the toy isle of the pharmacy and needed rubber bouncy balls and expensive drinking cups for toddlers.
Once I bought the fabric and sewed up little girl dresses for a lady who arrived from another country so her girls would have pretty tznius dresses for summer. I also use to buy all her children outfits and shoes.
One time in the snow we created a tomchei shabbos on our own. We loaded a sled with a box full of food for a family who really didn’t have. Literally close to nothing. We shlepped it to them and then rang the bell and ran. My daughter just caught the last words she heard the little girl cry “Mommy look,,,,fleish…fish….beans!!!!”September 25, 2011 3:09 am at 3:09 am #812408smartcookieMember

KInd is a relative term. There might be something that we feel is no big deal but to the recipient of the gesture it might seem or feel like the kindest thing ever.September 25, 2011 6:26 am at 6:26 am #812411am yisrael chaiParticipant
It’s amazing how quickly we can recount our negatives yet flounder with our positives!
We must exercise our positive muscles, or else we’re more likely to see the negatives in others as well.September 25, 2011 6:44 am at 6:44 am #812412WolfishMusingsParticipant

I think if you want to hear about kind things this thread should be renamed to:
Kind things you’ve ever seen done by others.
Because I think people have a hard time turning into Baal gaivah to talk about their own deeds.
Rightfully so because there is no place for shechinah where Baal gaivah stands.September 25, 2011 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm #812414

My friend who was sitting in learning for many years supported by his businessman brother got up and started a Yeshiva for middle achievers and now has the achrayus of finding donors to support about 30 others.
