15 UAK (Unique Acts of Kindness) During this semester, you are asked to complete and report on 15 Unique Acts of Kindness. These Acts are not simply using good manners and basic civility. Acts represent effortful behavior that go beyond everyday decency. On the first line, tell me what you did (briefly). Below that, describe what impact it had on either you or the target of your kindness. A few thoughtful sentences will be enough. Be honest and gain something. I’m not looking for little things like holding the doors for “old ladies”. Think impact!!! (12 point Times Roman Font, 1½ line spacing) 1. Act: I took one of my friends to the airport at 4:00 in the morning so that they didn’t need to pay for an uber. Reaction: He was very appreciated of me waking up at such an odd time in the morning to take him to the airport instead of him needing to pay for a taxi or an uber by himself. It made me feel good as a person to be able to help him out as he is someone who does not ask for favors much at all. 2. Act: During Spring Break, I rearranged my entire break to accommodate taking a trip to Orlando with one of my friends so that he didn’t have to go and see the Orlando City soccer game by himself because he didn’t have a car. Reaction: In January, this particular friend lost his mom to cancer. His spring break consisted of him staying with his grandparents and going to see lawyers instead of filled with much fun. The only thing he wished to do was go and see this soccer game and he asked me if I could make it happen to where I would leave South Florida on Saturday instead of my plan of Friday so that he could go to the soccer game. He followed by asking if I would go with him and I said that I would. I probably ended up asking 20 people for a place to stay on Friday night so that I could accommodate his need to leave on Saturday instead of Friday. I am not a large soccer game so the going to the game did not phase me much, but he was in love with the fact of being there at the game. I would relate him to being a kid in a candy store. Seeing how happy it made him made me happy that I could help bring a smile to his face after he has had a very rough year. 3. Act: Going to pray at 8am on a Thursday. Reaction: In the Jewish custom, when someone passes away it is tradition to say the mourners kaddish. When it is the parent, it is tradition to say it every day for a year. In one of my board group chats, we got asked to go this morning at 8am to say kaddish with one of my friends, as his mother recently passed.
