What is an action from From the Heart?

A selfless act performed by a person or people wishing either to assist or to cheer up an individual person or people.

One thing most people struggle with is coming up with creative and caring ideas.
Here are some examples of what has been successful:
  • Care packages for homeless
  • Care packages for troops
  • Greet troops arriving home
  • Yard work for someone in need
  • Cold drinks for bus drivers, police, security guards
  • Prepare a family for back to school
  • Buy school supplies for teachers
  • Deliver meals to police/fire stations
  • Do you know a young couple with kids that can’t afford a babysitter, let alone a dinner out by themselves? Offer to pay for a sitter and dinner.
  • Take toys or snacks to the ER waiting room
  • Find the person that you want to give some money to. Tell them about our From the Heart program. Give them a $10 or $20 bill. Then give them another $10 or $20 bill and ask them to perform an act From the Heart with this second bill.

We have found other organizations who do a great job of capturing actions From the Heart.
As you look through the stories on Kindspring, you’ll see that most of them don’t cost a penny.
