If, as the Japanese saying goes, “one kind word can warm three winter months,” think how many winter months were warmed by this single act of kindness.

You don’t have to look far to find opportunities for small acts of kindness. A young man named Lee, who was taught about the RBA, related this:

I am the junior class president at my school. I decided to try the small kindness deposit I learned about by putting a simple note in the boxes of the student body officers I didn’t know well. I told them that I appreciated the work they did. They took me about five minutes to write up.

The next day one of the girls I had written a note to came up to me and abruptly gave me a big hug. She thanked me for the note, and handed me a letter and a candy bar. The note said she had had a terrible day. She had a great deal of stress and was very depressed. My small note had turned her whole day around, helping her to happily accomplish the things that had caused her so much grief. The strange thing was that I had hardly known her when I gave her the note, and I was sure that she didn’t like me anyway because she never really paid any attention to me. What a surprise! I couldn’t believe how much a simple note meant to her.
