    I was having my haircut and got to hear that someone in the hair salon was enjoying their birthday. So I sang Happy Birthday to that person…it made them smile and some other people in the hairdressing salon joined in. After I’d finished, I bought some chocolates in the shop next door and gave them to the person in a random act of kindness … and why not.

    A mate of mine was moving into a house in Canberra and it was his first ever house. It was a big thing for him. I got myself and another mate who didn’t know Lee to lend a hand. We spent the whole day helping out Lee move into his new home.

    We did 3 trips and lots of driving to get it all sorted out. Lee was thrilled with our help and was really happy. It made me appreciate friendship … I know he’d do the same for me. And now Lee and my other mate (who didn’t even know him at the time) are good mates.

    This story is from a while ago. I was getting off my school bus with a couple of friends when I heard someone scream not far away from me. A child from a younger year was crying. I went up to him to see if he was ok. I tried to calm him down. He told me that a random man hit him in the back of the head.

    While I was calming him down, his mother picked him up and drove away.

    The next day the boy and his mother were on my front door with a $100 gift voucher. They were insistent on thanking me. It made me feel awesome and awkward at the same time as I don’t feel I did anything to merit that reward but it was nice to be thanked.

    The police dealt with the person involved and made sure it didn’t happen again.

    The principal at our school is fantastic. She works so hard. She’s had some health issues … she’s always positive and inspiring. We gave her a scarf at a father’s day breakfast and just reminded her that she is a fantastic human being.

    I came home from work one day and my next door neighbour was standing outside his door. I asked him how he was and found out that he had been stranded outside his house because he had no keys to get in.

    He asked if I could lend him my phone so he could call his daughter so she could come home to let him in. I did and he offered me a bit of money for lending him my phone. I refused to take the money.

    In the next couple of days he thanked me by sending over some eggs and was clearly very thankful. I don’t think I did a lot for him but that small act made him very happy.

    The first time I gave money to a homeless man in Melbourne, he yelled at me and said I was rude. He seemed pretty angry. It made me aware there are plenty of people out there having difficult journeys.

    It hasn’t stopped me giving money!

    We were on a holiday overseas and went to Disney Land. Everybody had a false name … we were in Hong Kong. I can’t tell you why but my family developed a lot of admiration for a lady working in the Tomorrow Land canteen selling chips. She was called ‘Money’. We asked to specially meet her and presented her with some gifts. When we got back to Australia we sent her some more things in the hope that it might make her smile. We so loved meeting her – she was such an inspiration.
