I work for a non-profit... which means I get paid shit, but I love what I do. I like helping people.

I always buy my friends food or drinks whenever they don't have the spare cash. Never expect a penny back.

I always try to help the person sitting next to me and behind me when writing an exam if they don't know something. That's a right thing to do, isn't it?

So one time I was walking to my local grocery store to go get some food, and while I was walking through the parking lot an old man called out to me to help him out. He couldn't get out of his car and needed help so I ended up helping him out of his car he said ,"thank you" and we parted ways.

New neighbor was moving in with help from his much older folks. They couldn't get the couch. I walked up and asked if they wanted a hand (didn't want to be rude and butt in without asking). They said sure, I helped them get it in and told them to have a good one. Helped another neighbor that couldn't get out of their driveway in the winter. I think it is important to help folks in your community to foster a better sense of community cohesion and elevate everyone around you. Stronger and better communities can then act like that and reach out as groups to help other communities. It doesn't start at the top, it starts right in arm's reach.

Drove a homeless man to Arby's and got him anything on the menu.

After I brought him to the local mall and bought him a pair of insulated Converse.

Then I brought him to a motel. This was a year ago.

...It felt good, but the "good karma" fairy has yet to hit me. Not that I'm asking for it, but recently things have been shallow.

That's a fundamental misunderstanding our society has of Karma.

Karma isn't supposed to hit until your next life. So basically don't count on it, but you might be reborn as a cow if you keep taking care of vagrants. Or you might rot in the ground, but that's a better fate than dying in the streets, very nice to hear people are helping the homeless in this thread.

Recently I was dogsitting and saw a neighbor's dog running around the neighbor's front yard. I didn't think much of it, figured they just had him out front with them (I saw from the back deck so I couldn't see much of their front yard) until later at night when I noticed their gate was open. I took the two dogs on a late-night walk to look for the little guy, but we didn't find him. Still, it was good for the dogs I was watching to get a long walk. A couple days later the neighbors had their dog back and the lump in my throat was gone.

I didn't solve anything, but I guess I can feel good that I gave it a shot.

My very existence is a good deed.

I guess I helped out an Online friend with some advice.... I didn't even know I was giving advice, I thought I was successfully trolling her. Guess I've failed.

Haha, good for you! I don't work non-profit because I'm too shy to spread word effectively. I volunteered for a Planned Parenthood booth because a friend of mine had scheduling issues and I said I'd be willing to sit in for him.

I got extremely suspicious looks from the other volunteers the whole time I was there and then was semi-politely encouraged to leave. I think they thought I was that seventies "breeder" when really I just think Planned Parenthood offers a lot of critically important services and I like to help my friends. Mostly I blame my friend who was working for them and let me sit in without briefing me on any responsibilities or giving me any advice, but at the same time I probably could have asked more questions before I agreed. Before that I never knew supporting the cause would be so tricky. Since, I've heard lots of stories of pointless personal in-fighting with the local PP, I guess when you get a bunch of passionate people who are looking for a low-paying top spot together that's what's going to happen.

I hope you succeed and move forward in your non-profit, and I hope you have bolder volunteers than me, hahaha.

My most difficult good deed to accomplish so far has been not to murder people.
lol...


Many things, most of which are volunteer positions within my community. I do random odd things for people as well. I'm a creature of whim, so if i feel in the mood, I'll do it.

I work at a hospital and I'm mostly around the geriatric population. I love helping out others, young old or not. I go out of my way to help friends ace their exams, cook them a meal. I like helping my patients with whatever they need that will help them heal (besides having sex cuz it's unethical and I wouldn't do it anyways lol, I had a young patient ask me that and I almost lost my patience).
