Random Acts of Kindness come in all forms, large and small, and how you choose to perform yours is entirely up to you.

You could,

Give your seat up on the bus

Let someone else go first 

Just Say 'Please' or 'Thank you'

Take a 'friend' out to lunch just because they are your friend.

Put some change in the cup of a homeless person on the street.

Get a cup of tea or coffee for someone who 'looks down'

Lift someone up with your words, compliment them on their appearance.

Bake some cakes and take into work.

Just smiling at someone and telling them to have a good day could have a profound impact.
