Random Acts of Holiday Kindness

 

Scott Ciabattoni, a member of the Greater Wilmington board, and his friends, Kevin Seiner and Greg Spadea, celebrated the holiday season with Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) on the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware Christmas tree lot last year.

On the evening of December 16th, the three friends watched as shoppers entered the tree lot to find their perfect tree. They observed body language, reactions to price tags, and general interaction to choose the recipients of their six Random Acts of Kindness. Each recipient received a card letting them know that the tree of their choosing would be paid for, wishing them a Merry Christmas, and requesting that they pay it forward in their own way.

One young couple and their children were so thankful. The father told them they had no idea how much this meant to them and proceeded to tell them that he lost his job just a few days prior, his wife was in a car accident while pregnant with their fourth child (The mother and baby are fine) and that someone had recently broken into their house and stolen some of their belongings. If anyone needed a break, it was this couple!

The remaining four recipients had similar reactions. One couple was hesitant to accept the RAK at first, but was more willing once they knew it wouldn't detract from the money the Clubs received. Another recipient, turned out to be a disabled veteran. The third recipients, a gentleman and his son, were digging in their pockets looking for more money when Scott handed them the RAK notice. They tried to give him what little money they had, but Scott refused and told them he only hoped that they'd pay it forward. The fourth recipient was a woman who truly had a bad day. As a treat to herself, she was forgoing the artificial tree she had at home and replacing it with a real tree and was able to do so compliments of a RAK.
