Send Us Your Stories of Kindness
What’s the kindest thing that ever happened to you? Was it heartfelt, surprising—funny? Tell us, we’ll even pay you $100 if we publish it in the magazine. Here’s a sample to get you thinking: June King, of Norwalk, Connecticut, was having trouble parking at a farmer’s market until, she told us in a letter, “a gentleman who was driving by stopped and offered to park my car for me. He then got out my walker and helped me shop. When we finished, he escorted me back to my car, made sure I was safely inside, then left. Apparently, the only reason he had stopped was to help me.”
Now, let’s hear your story of kindness: visit rd.com/kindness to enter.
