I don’t remember where I read this, but it was long ago and it has never left my memory. I hope it will have the same effect on you that it has had on me.
...When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so at the end, you are the one smiling and everyone around you is crying… Have a great night, People…. #peace #tranquil #kindness #joy
@Alyssa McLellan on the Jobcase team shared that her mom leaves snacks and water outside for delivery drivers to take when they drop off packages. I loved this. And now do it myself, What other ideas are out there to brighten the day of Frontline workers who take care of us all? Or, if you are a frontline worker- what examples do you have of customers who brightened your day. Please share and help us all figure out how best to brighten each other’s day.

Volunteer Work over the internet. Somebody could start a list for resources for those who need things. Like basic necessities. Like food. Personal cleaning supplies. Maybe ask a local church, for extra gift cards. Or something else, there are other resources, like helping people on a chat line, for those who can't help themselves. There are so many of them.
Has anyone seen this video? It's pretty adorable - this little one befriends his local garbage men and gives them gifts on holidays and everything. I think it just speaks to the kindness that everyone has, and shows how appreciative people are for a job well done!
You can watch the video here!
Keep a "Blessing bag" in your car in case you find someone in need. You can make these up with items from the Dollar Tree such as gloves, thermal socks, beef sticks, crackers, candy bars, toothpaste, toothbrush, wipes, deodorant, snacks and other items that may help someone who is homeless or in a bad way. It is just a thoughtful, inspiring thing to do.
Random acts of kindness take very little to change the life of just one person. hashtag#inspiration hashtag#bekind hashtag#coldweather hashtag#humanitarian hashtag#ahandup hashtag#love

When I worked at Target I had this sweet older couple come through my line. They went to pay for a few groceries, but they were short $12. He began to count change on the belt and the wife debated what to put back. I was about to help them myself, when the guy behind them says don't work guys it's on me. He paid for their groceries. The older woman hugged him and asked for his address to repay him, but he said it wasn't a big deal. It sure was to them, and to me.
When Garrick, a Southwest Airlines flight attendant, found himself in the position to help a passenger in need, he went above and beyond the call of duty. I wanted to share another GREAT customer service story [here is the other in case you missed it] (https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/9c45f11a-047c-5e12-872f-74adb228817c)!
Nine-year old Gabby, a type 1 diabetic, was severely anxious about being on an airplane. Garrick, a Southwest crew member, worked throughout the flight to make her more comfortable, bringing her special drinks and trying to make her laugh after he noticed her struggling during takeoff. When the plane hit a serious patch of turbulence, he let her sit in the empty seat next to him, talked to her about his daughter (the same age as Gabby), about her pets, her school, and even let her grab his arm for comfort.
At the end of the flight, Garrick used the PA to tell the whole plane that his new friend — Gabby — had just overcome her fear of flying, and that she deserved a round of applause from the whole plane. “The whole plane clapped for her,” her mother reported afterwards, “It was a wonderful experience on Southwest. We are forever grateful to have met such a beautiful, selfless soul.”
This story reminds us that in ANY job we are doing, we can ALWAYS make a difference.
Happy customer service week!!
