  • Gift of a Lotto Purchase

    by Suzy, about 1 month ago

    Earlier this week my 90 year old mother, supported by her walking frame, was checking her unsuccessful Lotto ticket in Randwick Shopping Centre when a lovely nearby man intervened to place in her hand a Lotto ticket just for her.

    It was a completely altruistic act made all the more beautiful by pausing further for a friendly exchange of words.  Before taking off into the busy streetscape my mother assured him that she would find him in the event of her winning and he replied 'Oh, there would be no need for that.'

    This warm and delightful expression of humanity... Continue reading

  • Coogee Beach - Early morning cleaning

    by Larry, 2 months ago

    Randwick Council staff do an excellent job keeping Coogee Beach clean and free of litter. In addition, almost everyday at sunrise, one of our good community minded residents walks along the edge of the beach and picks up pieces of rubbish and places them in the bin. This makes the beach beautiful and a delight for all users. A big thanks to this person and the many others who contribute to keeping Coogee Beach pristine.

  • You Are Amazing Leticia

    by Bails, 2 months ago

    Some weeks ago I fell from the pavement outside the Randwick Ritz  and hit my head on a large piece of concrete (chicane?)  on the road. I was bleeding profusely and had broken my glasses. A very lovely young woman came to my aid, took me to the cinema ladies room and helped to stem the bleeding. She then insisted on driving me to the hospital, as being a nurse thought I needed a stitch. She wouldn't allow  me to give her some money but took my phone number so I could buy her a coffee when she was in... Continue reading

  • Strangers Can Be Angels

    by Rebecca Mackey, 2 months ago

    I have an extra special angel in the area who saw my car get hit late at night by an intoxicated driver who did not stop. This person took a video of the vehicle, left a note on my car & called the police to log an event and had . My very kind angel saved my children & I from being without a vehicle plus all the expenses to fix my car and brought this person to justice which just may have saved a life of someone in the future. My Angel didn't leave their contact details with me... Continue reading

  • It's a price of a coffee, she said

    by lallauna, 2 months ago

    the other day I was visiting a popular chemist on maroubra road. As I stood in the line to pay I overheard another lady customer ask the sales attendant if she could "owe" $3.00 for a prescription she was paying for...she had left her wallet at home and had only $109 on her while her bill was $112. The lady promised to return and pay the outstanding $3.00 - she was a regular customer who has all of her family's prescriptions on file at this chemist. The sales attendant refused to comply, much to everyone's dismay - BUT then another... Continue reading

  • non judgement

    by Sand, 2 months ago

    I was walking down a street, where I witnessed a gentleman giving a meal in a bag to a homeless person, and some change. What I saw was not the kindness in the giving of food, but the act of enjoying this moment of helping another being. This encouraged me to then also do some acts of kindness. 

    I've purchased flowers and chocolate and gave them to strangers just because it felt so good to see joy in another person.

  • Feel good moment

    by carlos, 2 months ago

    Hi friends. Some low creature had attempted to steal a 25 Horse Power motor from a boat on Franklin Street Matraville and stashed it in the bush area of Franklin Street on the outskirts of the horse paddock. 

    I saw it when my dog stopped to have a piddle. I pulled it out of the bussh and stood it upright on the trolley it was atteched to. I called Maroubra Police who said they would attend. A young bloke then approached me and said he knows the owner. 

    I then contacted the police back, the young guy spoke with the... Continue reading

  • Kind Marcellin boy

    by katem, 3 months ago

    I was waiting to turn onto Avoca Street from Milford Street yesterday and I saw a Marcellin boy on his way to school give a sandwich to a man sitting on the footpath (the man appeared to be homeless as he had a pile of possessions in plastic bags with him).  It was a very kind gesture.

  • Jackpot of kindness

    by hockeysticks, 3 months ago

    At a recent night out with work colleagues trying our hand at a bit of pub trivia, we were a little shocked to find ourselves in joint first place. The next round was a ‘fall hard, fall fast’ round of heads and tails, with the overall winner taking home the jackpot of $100 and the loser getting, well, nothing. The tension in the room was palpable as the contest came right down to the wire and it was just me and another girl left standing…. My spirits soared as I dared to believe I might be the winner, the taste... Continue reading

  • How kindness comes back.

    by MorganC, 3 months ago

    Not being the most romantic of guys i realised i had not given my wife flowers(she actually pointed it out) in a very long time. $40 bucks later and a note professing my appreciation for her and all she does for us and im all set. But instead of just putting a smile on her face she makes me feel awesome by telling me how i didnt need to give her flowers as i am already the best husband she could ever have and that she appreciates all that i do for her and the kids and am an awesome father.
