Each perform a random act of kindness in NYC, then meet & discuss the experience

  • Feb 20, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • Le Pain Quotidien

Let's have a feel-good experience (and natural ice-breaker) for this group's initial meetup.  

We're going to increase the positive energy in NYC!

First, google the phrase "list of random acts of kindness".  Then check out a few of these lists and find an act of kindness that you will be glad to perform.  Note that we're not having a bragfest or a competition; anyway, we all will be winners.  The goal is simply to make NYC a little bit happier.

You will perform the random act of kindness by yourself, sometime during the day of our meetup.  Then when we meet, we'll each describe the experience--why you chose what you chose; how the recipient reacted; and what it was like for you.

Location:  Bryant Park Le Pain Quotidien, 70 W 40 St.

Please please please either honor your RSVP, or decline if you can't make it.  No-shows will really mess up a group this small.

    If people from the waitlist are moved up, I take it that we will get notified? (And if that's not me, I look forward to the next event!)

      Yes. A bunch of people have canceled. When they change their RSVP, the next person on the list automatically gets a notification. If I don't meet you tomorrow, I look forward to the next one (or the next one!). I definitely will repeat this event.
