"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?' "
— Martin Luther King Jr.

I’m always intrigued when others do something incredibly kind without anyone knowing “who did it.”

Here are a variety of ways to anonymously share some goodness.

  • Pay a needy family’s electric bill.
  • Leave a basket of fresh produce on a neighbor’s doorstep.
  • Donate bouquets of flowers to a food bank.
  • Sneak a generous tip into a jar at a coffee shop.
  • Create a scholarship for children to attend summer camp.
  • Fix a broken fence for a neighbor.
  • Join together with friends and spruce up a friend’s yard.
  • Arrange for a cake to be delivered to your office.
  • Send someone a gift card through the mail.
  • Leave a cup of coffee or tea on a coworker’s desk.
  • Write someone a thank you letter.
  • Donate books to a new teacher.

No one will ever know it’s you!  Now it’s your turn to share your ideas.
