Each week at this time we pause to bring you good from around the world to our backyards. We’ve partnered with The Maguire Law Firm to bring you Carolina Kindness. We begin with a woman who is using her love of animals to help others reconnect with theirs using her drone equipment that she has become skilled. A woman in Ohio was out shopping on a Friday when she got a call from a neighbor who recently adopted dog that had gotten out and a thunderstorm was moving into the area. She abandoned her shopping trip to rush home and launch a drone search for the pup. Within 20 minutes the woman had located the dog roaming. The neighborhood hails her a hero for a small act of kindness that may have saved the dogs life.

Those boarding a Southwest airlines flight to Honolulu recently, found a ukulele waiting for them in their seats. They would soon learn that Guitar Center, the world’s largest musical instrument retailer, provided them with the instruments and with instructors onboard to give them a free lesson. By the end of the flight, passengers had learned to play a song one unified chord at a time…and the ukulele was their to keep!

It only takes one person to take the notion to do something kind that can make impacts around the world. A website dedicated to encouraging us to do something, anything, has come up with a few suggestions…this week’s prompts are causing many to get a chuckle. How about simply complimenting drivers on how well they park. See a car that’s parked inside the lines? Show the driver some love. Parking seems to be a difficult thing. Big trucks park in spots designated for small cars. People take up two spots instead of one and sometimes parallel parkers get so close to your car that you have to pull an Austin Powers to get out. Recognize the exemplary parkers of the world and leave a kind note on their windshield, “Hey wow, you parked your car like a pro. High five!”

Here’s another easy one folks are having fun with…you can do any time of the day…simply reply to a post you enjoy. We all get in the habit of breezing past content on social media, though it’s actually worth the effort of making the internet a positive and constructive place. Even if it’s just a simple “thank you” or tidbit of good feedback, the person behind the post will appreciate your time and effort. Take an extra moment to show you are grateful for the inspiration, information and/or humor they provide in your life.
If you get value out of something, let it be known! Simple as that.
