Show The World You Care With Skout’s Random Act Of Kindness List

It’s wild how easy it is to meet people online. There are so many great online networks to join. Skout is my favorite online social media network because it’s the easiest one to use if you like meeting new people online. I like to meet friends that way. I have so many online friends that I can’t even count them all. I love to see what people do in different parts of the world. We all have something in common. We all have something wonderful to add to the lives that we reach. It’s so easy to meet people all over the world that you can have a great conversation with.

The newest thing that I have seen on Skout that really impressed me was their surveys. They poll their users on some of the most interesting topics I have ever heard of before. Have you ever heard of the Random Act of Kindness Week? It was really exciting to me, and I wouldn’t have known about it if it wasn’t for the survey that Skout had started. They had their results printed on Uloop’s website.

The results of the survey proved that a large percentage of Skout’s users actually care about expressing their kind feelings to strangers. Apparently, 93 percent of the college students surveyed have been doing random acts of kindness, and over 50 percent of the people surveyed do these types of wonderful, encouraging acts on a daily basis. Have you been doing random acts of kindness, or is this new to you like it is to me?

I have done kind things in the past, or course. However, the random acts of kindness on the list of top acts on the survey are new to me. I never considered buying a cup of coffee for a stranger until I saw that suggestion on the survey results on Uloop’s website. They have a bunch of other suggestions for showing your kind hearted feelings to strangers on the survey results page. There are all kinds of creative ways to show the world that you care. Take a look at the Uloop article for more information.
