ASUS CuCore 5770 for Random Act of kindness - Page 3  

post #21 of 86
I am a student worker for my university and the building I work at is an off campus building in downtown. There's a lot homeless people who frequent the area and just last week, a person in need asked me for change and I gave him the last dollar I had left in my wallet. Later in the week, while I was waiting for the city bus to take me back to school, another homeless man, pushing a cart asked me for change and I gave him all my change accumulated from the week (I also keep the change, though it makes my wallet heavy as a brick, I value change a lot, so I pick it up off the floor when I see it).

I spent the last two months on here helping people with PC problems nearly 24/7 lol

I'll definitely try to do something better


My friend was feeling depressed like I do sometimes. The other day he was thinking of suicide. He was going to hang himself. He was having a lot of trouble getting over a break up with his girlfriend of almost 5 years. He told me over and over life isn't worth it with put her anymore and he didn't want to deal with it anymore. I immediately talked him out of it. I related to him with my perspective on it and how I usually deal with it. I took him out and we ended up having some fun going bowling and skipped my classes and an exam at my university for him. He wound up feeling a whole lot better. He thanked me yesterday, and told me that if I didn't do what I did he wouldn't have been here.

I just feel happy knowing what I did for him, I hope to be able to do this for others too!

The high school I attend has 2 entrances, both lead onto main streets.

So today, when I was pulling out of the line to get out of the school, I see everyone slowly moving out of the way of a car that is in the middle of the road. In the car is a kid, about a year younger than me, just sitting in the car. I pull over to the side of the road and get out of my car and tell the kid to put the car into neutral. I then push his car to the side of the road. The kid gets out of the car and I ask him what happened, he tells me that the car just died. I pop the hood, and needless to say, the radiator thermostat is totally out of wack, its all cracked and crap. So I go on to tell him that the thermostat is bad and probably needs to be replaced, because if its not working properly, then the thermostat won't open at the right temperature to allow liquid to cool down the parts and then flow to the radiator, allowing the car to overheat. He called his dad, and then his dad showed up and took him home.

You guys are killing me, I have not a good enough reason against yours lol. The best I got is helping setup a Halloween party, haunted house, and haunted trail. Also helping take down the party setup. I also helped do the chores around the farm that I helped with the party on.

Matrix, I wish I had homeless people to help. Wait well I don't WISH there was more homeless people but you get the point lol.

Stopped and helped a stranger put on his spare. Was headed westbound on 10 and I saw the poor old man on the side of the road not sure how to jack up his van. Luckily for him I had my breakover bar and a cheap spin up jack. Got em lifted, swapped the tire, topped of his oil (cause it was in my car lol) and gave him directions to the nearest tire shop in town. Oh, and he was in dire need of a smoke. So we had a smoke and BSed about work and politics.

I was just approached by an individual saying they need a sponsor for 25 homeless children in the 10 elementary schools around me, this has prompted/inspired me to do this.

I provide the funds for the food pick up the food in backpacks and hand deliver them to the kids in my schools (its in a regular back pack so the other kids dont know that these kids dont have a home) and might not be eating supper or any meals on the weekend.

in addition to just now decided to do this
I volunteer in after school programs in these Elementary schools as well helping care for children free of charge to help out the parents.

http://polkproject.org/ thats the website for the project its brand new...just to kinda show that I'm not making this up

Well I think if you make something like this up, you're sick.

As for me, I have nothing that compares to you guys.


Good Job everyone!

As you might or might not know, there was (and still is) a terrible snow storm in Connecticut and we are in the state of emergency. While driving home from the gas station I saw the car in front of being being hit by a falling tree. The car was crushed and the person inside was stuck. I quickly hit the brakes and rushed over to help. Both of the driver and passenger sides were stuck and there was nothing I could do. So I grabbed my crow bar and tried to break the back windshield and attempted to get her out. The more I hit the windshield the more the tree wanted to keep on crushing the car. Eventually the windshield broke but at this point the tree was already too far in so I had to grab a hold of the tree while she climbed out. Ironically the fire department got there right when she got free and was able to help me drop the tree. It felt really amazing and the rush of adrenaline was too good.

So this happened about 3 years ago, I was walking home from the grocery store when I saw a elderly lady walking across the street. Unexpectedly a small truck runs the red light and hits her, I run up to her and make it just in time to hear her last few words. She says "It appears my time has run out but you can still save them", with her last bit of strength she hands me a bloody folder full of documents in a language I didn't recognize. The folder contained a map, a few blurry pictures of some young children(around 8-12), and a long letter in a language that I could not initially decipher. After many months of extensive research and help from many friends, family, and a few scientists and professors willing to donate some time I managed to translate the instructions inside. It turned out the language was of a strange Latin descent but was written in code. After deciphering the code it read "I have hidden your grandchildren in a place you will never find, in 2 years I shall harvest their organs"~Cthulhu. Realizing at this point that I had little time left, a mere week to save these poor kids, i got right to work. I figured out that the map was of Dul'Gar, a distant planet about 70 parsecs away that few have heard of. Considering the distance I decided to build a ship of sorts to make it there, after about a day of work I constructed a ship using some old computer cases, my 4 kitties running in wheels, duct tape, 3 grapes, a tennis ball, a pack of hi-chew, a copy of superman 64, and a ball of suspicious looking yarn. Using my newly constructed battle-cruiser I made the journey to Dul'Gar. Upon arriving the evil lord himself Cthulhu greeted me with a delicious cake, realizing that this whole set up could very well be a lie, I attacked him preemptively using a vial of charlie sheen's blood. The attack was successful and destroyed the great demon once and for all. Now that the hard part was done I followed the map to the children, saved all three of them and brought them back to earth where I bought them all snow-cones. YOU HEAR THAT! I bought complete strangers snow-cones! Now isn't that awesome!

OK, OK, if you don't believe that I understand, I mean who could turn down free cake.

In all seriousness, about a week ago I was at cvs buying a pack of cigs. After walking outside I opened the pack and took out a cig, and offered one to a homeless man sitting near a trash can. He seemed so pleased by the offer, so genuinely happy, that I decided to give him the entire pack. I walked back inside and bought another pack and went on my way. I know its not exciting, I didn't save anyone's life or fix aids, but this actually happened and I think it is the best example I can come up with. ^_^
