A man who dresses up as a giraffe and carries out random acts of kindness towards people has said he does it to feel good!
Twice a week Armstrong Baillie, 32, dons a furry suit his mother made him, before travelling to different places to do good deeds.
He calls himself The Good Giraffe and lives in Dundee with his girlfriend and her daughter.
The BBC website reported this story on 14th November. I love the idea, and the picture that goes with the article.
I remember being in a school assembly when I was at Chethams in Manchester. Our head teacher was talking about the many homeless people who ‘lived’ in the streets around the school and asked what we could/should do to help them. He said he sometimes took them to the cafe and bought them a drink rather than giving them money. One girl said she gave 10p to each person. That was some 20 or so years ago now. I think she probably still does.
When did you last make a random act of kindness and how did it make you feel? Why not try it again today
