Wheel out your neighbour's trash bin, promote a cause, use a travel mug for your morning coffee, leave coins in a vending machine or car wash, donate blankets to a animal shelter, hang clothes to dry, fill a bird feeder, give away your parking spot, leave a surprise in your mailbox for the mail carrier, tell a joke, carry someone's groceries, give out hand warmer packets, offer a night of babysitting to a friend, tell someone that you love them...no kind deed is ever wasted!
