Random Act of Kindness Adventure Week 3




We were walking through the parking lot to the 99 cent store and heard a really nice country voice.  It sounded like it was coming from a speaker, and then we saw Chuck.  He had set up his own little stage complete with microphone and speakers.

We chatted a few minutes and found out he is a veteran and instead of sitting with a cup asking for a handout, he's like a street musician sharing is music and mellow country voice.  It was a pleasure to put a few dollars in his hat, and listen to a person giving back in the way of a song.  

It was a two-fold RAK ~ we gave him a few dollars, and he gave us a song!  It was a win-win!

To see all the other RAK's this week check in at Betsy's who is hosting our RAK adventure.

  1. Love this! To be entertained and to know you were helping someone in the process is the best. I know a lot of veterans struggle, mentally and physically - so glad that he still wants to share the gift of music.

    1. It breaks my heart to see homeless veterans. Chuck seemed to have a good attitude with his plight, and was certainly giving in his smile and music.

    1. He was a delight to visit with you. He was as warm and sweet as the picture shows. Sometimes a few meaningful minutes and a few dollars means so much.

  4. That was so nice and I bet he received a two-fold RAK....the money you gave and the fact that you were interested enough to listen to him. I imagine that wanting to hear his music was an awesome feeling to him. Nice one, Wanda!

  12. This is a beautiful RAK. I know that Veteran really appreciated your music enjoyment and the bucks in his pocket.
    My RAK hasn't arrived yet. Our nephew and his wife are using our B&B tonight for a conference they are attending. I fixed them a welcome basket which I know they aren't expecting. It's fun to do surprises that will help them through the next few days.

      They will LOVE your welcome basket... I know from experience. I love your Welcome Baskets.
