Overview

This book contains 250 stories of good deeds, including these: 1) On 4 May 2013, Redditor XLK9 made a post with the title “Saw a lady at gas station paying for gas with dimes, put $10 on the counter and walked out.” The title explains the good deed, and the additional comments XLK9 made in the post are interesting: “Told a colleague of mine, and he said I was a bleeding heart liberal. I asked him if that was a euphemism for Christian” and “Best $10 I ever spent.” 2) Anne Beatts and Michael O’Donoghue were boyfriend and girlfriend, and they were hired as writers for "Saturday Night Live." They were being paid the same, but apparently that was a mistake. Ms. Beatts says that NBC decided, “No, wait. That’s a mistake. We didn’t mean to pay you the same.” That was bad news for Ms. Beatts; after all, she and Mr. O’Donoghue had just spent an impoverished year together before being hired to write for Saturday Night Live. So Ms. Beatts went to Lorne Michaels and said, “This can’t be. We have to be paid the same!” She remembers, “Plus, the money was gone. I’d spent it. We are talking about a big $750 a week, which to us was largesse — unimaginable largesse. And then Lorne, bless him, just told them they had to reactively change it and pay us the same. And they did.” 3) On 30 May 2013, Brian Thaut, age 32, of Salt Lake City, Utah, crashed while riding his motorcycle. He was not wearing a helmet when he hit a parked, unoccupied car, and he suffered traumatic brain injuries and lay in a coma before dying on 8 June 2013. He worked for Adobe, which put up on one of its billboards Mr. Thaut’s photograph and the message “Thanks for the laughs, Brian. 1980-2013.” Dan Pearce, who writes for the blog "Single Dad Laughing," wrote, “Adobe has my respect for that, and I think when big companies do such incredible personal things without asking anything in return (they didn’t even put their name on it), they deserve a little shout-out. That’s all. May all big businesses, and the people who run them, be so thoughtful.” Mr. Pearce, who was friends with Mr. Thaut, paid him this compliment: “He died young, but he died living.”

    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you...

    Driving home early one morning, on a dark, deserted country road, my sister just happened to notice that a car had driven off an embankment up ahead. Without any thought to her own safety, she pulled over, got out of her car, and proceeded to climb down the hill to check on the situation. Thank God she did! The driver was unconscious and bleeding profusely from a head wound. She took off her sweatshirt, used it to staunch the flow of blood, called 911, and waited with the man until the paramedics arrived. Though she never found out if he survived that awful crash, I know he knew, somehow, that someone was with him during those most critical moments.
