Who are you: Carolyn Pioro, freelance writer and web support

What was your kindness deed: For my act of kindness I picked a random name off Canada 411 and sent a holiday greeting card plus a $5 gift card from Tim Hortons.

Why did you want to do this: I picked this particular deed because if I were to receive such an unexpected card/gift it would totally blow my mind!

How did it make you feel: Sending this greeting made me feel a bit guilty that I don’t send more cards to my friends and family.

How did they respond: I hope when the receiver gets this card, that he or she delights in the small gift and the hope that this little act of kindness represents.
