Food Store Stranger Kindness


Yesterday, I had an interesting evening experiencing “No to Stranger Kindness”.

In the checkout line when I was going to pay for my groceries, I noticed I had four 10 euro coupons in this particular store. However, what I didn’t know, was that I could only use one for each payment.

Evening, tired, and just before closing time, my heart dropped. I would lose 30 euro because they expired this same day.

I turned quickly to the man standing behind. Did he maybe want one coupon for free? He looked surprised, but after a few seconds he accepted it.

Before paying my grooseries, I ran up to other people asking, “would you like to have 10 euro coupon for free?” To my very surprise, they all looked away turning down the money gift!

At this moment even the cashiers looked stunned, over what just happened.

“Was it turned down because I was a stranger?” I asked the man.

We all started to speculate. Maybe it was strange with “Stranger Kindness!”

It was a strange “ok” experience. —

Children — Women — Animal– Rights


All children, women, animals have the rights to be protected from violence inflicted on them by anyone in their lives – whether parents, teachers, friends, romantic partners, strangers or owners.

And all forms of violence experienced by children and animals, regardless of the nature or severity of the act, are harmful. Beyond the unnecessary hurt and pain it causes, violence undermines children’s sense of self-worth and hinders their development.

Same goes for Animals.
