2019 sees the 50th birthday of Claire, to celebrate we are inviting anyone that would like to remember her to dedicate a random act of kindness to her.
It’s really simple to take part and once you’ve done your random act I’d love to hear about it to show them all here. To take part…
- Submit your random act of kindness by scrolling to the bottom of this page and entering your details in the form, or email them to mark @ lost-without-her.com
- Begin your random acts of kindness now. No planning, no organising. Just be on the lookout for an opportunity each day… Someone that needs a little help with something, then offer… Anything that is a random act of kindness.
- Let me know what you’ve done. I’ll anonymise it and post it here as a tribute to the kindness that Claire showed the world.
- Encourage others to join in and again, tell them to let me know so I can add theirs to the site too.
The kindness of Claire lives on through these random acts… Thank you.
Random Acts of Claireness
The following are all the acts of kindness completed so far in Claire’s memory. [Updated 10/9/19]
- Leaving enough food for a meal for 2 in the food bank collection point
- Saving a big hairy spider from drowning in the pool
- Bought some food and drinks for a homeless man outside Victoria bus station. He was asleep but I’m sure he’ll be grateful when he wakes up
- Helped an old woman find the shaving gel for her husband
- Put £5 in Marie Curie tin at Morrisons
- I saw 2 old lady’s broken down in the middle off the road! I pushed their car into a nearby car park so keep them safe and clear the road
- I have signed up this week to give my blood plasma to the Australian blood bank to save as many lives as possible
- I’m going to buy 4 trees from Word Forest and have them planted in her name in Kenya. The woman who takes care of the 4 saplings will receive enough money to feed her family for a week and the tree will grow to maturity under her care
- Talk to a homeless person & make them feel appreciated.
- Helping a family get appropriate support for their child.
- I signed up to the national online organ donation register to donate any part of my body after death which could help up to 9 people
- On the way to the hairdressers to spend a silly amount of money getting it cut and coloured before my holiday, the sun will probably end up bleaching it anyway for nothing… I saw a homeless person sitting ready a Harry Potter book, not begging at all, so I popped into costa and bought him a sandwich and a coffee. He was so grateful and as I gave it to him I said…”that’s from Claire” xx
- I went to check on my neighbour and gave him extra produce from my allotment because I know he likes marrow ☺
- I gave a free entry ticket away for a science centre to a man in front of me in the queue
- Giving dinner to a friend who doesn’t have much money
- Gave my chair up for an elderly man today at the train station
- I am staying at my sisters while recovering from a hospital stay, this morning I could hear loud distressed shouting, so grabbed my dressing gown and went to find out what was happening. The older lady next door had got stuck on her stair lift, so I assisted her off it and back to bed, making her a cup of tea and a quick chat before I left.
- I helped an elderly lady unload a large amount of items into her trunk at Costco. She said she would have never been able to do it without my help. I just smiled and put her cart back for her.
- This morning while getting coffee, I bought coffee for the lady behind me. We had had a conversation prior and she had an amazing smile.
- Washed and took all outgrown kids coats to grow baby, a charity for families in need.
- Took adult coats, shoes and hats to our local homeless shelter.
- Gave away 2 tickets to Chessington world of adventure to a stranger on fb
- The elderly man next to me is now very immobile. I help him with his yard by raking leaves and putting out his garbage and recycling bins. In winter I will shovel his driveway and sidewalk and keep checking in on him
- I was in a hurry while shopping. An elderly man came in as I was ready to leave. He was standing by the cards & asked if I could help him. I knew that was more important. Answering his questions, it dawned on me he couldn’t see. I helped him pick out a card for his best friend.
- I gave my seat up for an elderly woman on the bus the other day 💜
- I took some washing home for my Homestart family because her washing machine is broken
- I saw a homeless guy still asleep in his sleeping bag in the street, whilst buying my own sandwich I bought one for him also and left it there so he would see it when he woke up.
- I put a vegan Christmas dinner for 2, including all the trimmings and dessert into the food bank collection point
