5 Priceless Ways These People Made Someone Else’s Day Just A Little Bit Brighter
We always love hearing about random acts of kindness, but we don’t report every instance of someone buying a stranger a cup of coffee. This is a good thing, by the way — it means being kind is becoming a regular gesture.

But a new random act of kindness trend called #FeedTheDeed grabbed our attention because it’s featured some new, fun ways to be good to one another. And we’re always on board for that.

A group of young Jewish adults from Toronto started the trend, according to the Jewish Tribune, but it’s since spread across all demographics. Leading the charge is Kindness Counts, an initiative that inspires kindness around the world.

“[#FeedTheDeed is] creative, it’s unconventional [and] it inspires people to be kind,” Russell Citron, founder and president of Kindness Counts, told the Jewish Tribune. “It has made kindness cool which is exactly what Kindness Counts strives to do.”

Here are our favorite creative ways #FeedTheDeed has spread kindness:

Running late? No worries. These girls taped a purchased train ticket to a booth for a lucky (and tardy) rider.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

Or a free hat!

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

A randomly placed pick-up line will make any stranger feel like a 10.

These two girls took the plunge, chopped and donated their long locks.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));
