  • Nice neighbour

    MY 12-year-old son wiped out badly on his bike.

  • Kindness at Kildonan Place

    MY husband and I travelled to Winnipeg to celebrate Father’s Day at our granddaughter’s home in Transcona.

  • Optimistic outlook

    ON New Year’s Eve, our car skidded onto a snowbank on Wellington Crescent at Renfrew Street.

  • An act of honesty

    I left my purse hanging in the washroom of Chapters at St. Vital Centre. My hands were full of purchases, and I didn’t realize my purse was missing until arriving at my apartment clear across the city.

  • Please remember to stop and smell the roses

    I was caught up in the mad dash to catch the shuttle after leaving Investor’s Group Field.

  • Grateful for gesture

    MY daughter and I were making a trip to the University of Manitoba bookstore. We went to park at the engineering complex because it is less expensive than the parkade. When I got out of the car to buy parking time, a young man gave us his dashboard ticket, which still had time left on it.

  • A promise to pay it forward

    I HAVE always been attracted to your “random acts of kindness” column. The stories have made me feel better about the world, especially after reading endless stories of global wars and the acts of cruelty that occur in our own city.

  • One gracious act

    AFTER leaving the Tom Petty concert, my daughter’s phone fell out of her pocket.

  • Thanks for the help

    MY husband and I had just finished breakfast at Stella’s on Portage Avenue and were returning to our car to drive home.

  • Stranger restores faith in humankind

    I WENT to Shoppers Drug Mart because I had accumulated $170 in points I could redeem for purchases. I only had to pay the tax on the items.

  • Eternally grateful

    My 92-year-old dad left his North Kildonan home and was wandering lost on his own for four hours.

  • Siblings save drowning boy

    A brother and sister who had taken lifesaving courses at the YMCA saved the life of a young swimmer at St. Malo Beach recently.

  • Deep gratitude

    Returning home to Ontario from Alberta, my wife and I stopped for gasoline at a Winnipeg Esso station, where I had a nasty fall. A local couple and their daughter very kindly assisted me with first-aid treatment and stayed with us until I was able to recover enough to continue our journey.

  • Courteous cabbie

    I know some cab drivers in this city have behaved badly and brought the occupation into disrepute, but not all cabbies are bad.

  • Shoppers helped ailing dad at Walmart

    My dad was hit by a car on Leila Avenue near Garden City Shopping Centre.

  • One great workplace

    I HAVE worked at Mercedes-Benz Winnipeg as a receptionist for two years. Recently, I gave my resignation because I am going to back to school in September.

  • Airline hailed cab to get family to Fredericton

    WHILE travelling with my family this summer, we encountered a random act of kindness.

  • Couple buying bike brought mom to tears

    WE bought our son Seth a new bike for his graduation from Grade 6.

  • Kind folks step up after bicycle accident

    I was in quite a bad bike accident in July on St. Mary’s Road, across the street from Dakota Lock & Safe.

  • Final moments serene

    My husband and I arrived at my dying sister’s bedside in the Carberry Personal Care Home, taking our turn to sit vigil. She was already in a deep, peaceful sleep in her carefully made bed. Her room was spotless and tidy, her flowering plant tended, her beloved keepsakes neatly arranged. But what truly created the serenity we felt in that room was the soft, beautiful music.
