Random Acts of Kindness: A Callout to the Chivers – REMINDER

We here at theCHIVE are firm believers in helping those around you, and sometimes the smallest things can make the biggest difference. So for the next week, we encourage you to go out and perform a random act of kindness for someone. However big or small, get creative and make somebody’s day a little brighter.

Snap a quick photo of your random act of kindness and submit it to our handy dandy submit page here or thechivesubmit [at] gmail [dot] com, and show the world how awesome Chivers and Chivettes are!

For a little inspiration.

  • Adam

    lol, Do I get bonus points? The cops are doing a safety blitz here this week and I have been letting people know about their brake lights being out before the fuzz does!! Damn the man!

    • Panigale

      I hate people like you. You're probably "that guy" at the gym that tells people they're not lifting correctly. You know what I mean? I am sure you do, because you know everything about everything. Fekin Assclown.

      • Jack_LeMac

        Enjoy your ticket, then

      • Adam

        This worked out well because I got a reminder that you're a dick! Who's the know-it-all? The guy who can recognize a light out? Or the guy who judges people in to a catergory based on a simple paragraph? I have been in a gym before but never once held a membership. I work with what I was born with and do a pretty good job! Seriously, keep calm and chive on dude. Because you're a huge douche when you're not.

      • beaturdog?

        man…. check yourself before you wreck yourself.

        No one wants to be around a downer

        Wow bro this dude wrote a paragraph about helping people from the H5-0 and you are dissing him, wtf dude? KCCO

            the correct use of "you're" vs. "your" would be: Paula, you're a mistake that your parents should never have made.

      A true hero is one that does something for someone and doesn't try to get credit for it nor want credit for it.

        that's great and all, but maybe you should post that in response to someone who didn't obviously make a joke.

  • JacksSmirkingRevenge

    Thats what KCCO is all about. Nice job Chiver

  • Wet_tosti

    Make the world a better place. Start at your own home! How about a free t-shirt for all chivers? : )

      • Wet_tosti

        You are a NOBODY! Start the printing Paula and fix me a drink! Thank you for your contribution. That's the true Chive spirit.

      • Markpong

        I'm sure the screen printing industry would beg to differ… Although I really hope they've got auto presses, because pulling that ink manually for 834,000 shirts would give you forearms like the hulk…

    • stonewall_79

      Second that!!!

  • tv_paul

    I've done this before and one time the meter maid started yelling at me for interfering with her job. I said sorry then proceed to put coins in three more meters that were near expiring.

    • Adriana


      • tv_paul

        Not a big deal. It was in a small town where I used to help my friend run his printing business. I had to go out and feed the meter for my car so when I saw a few others I just dropped some change into them. The meter maid was some old semi-retired lady so I didn't think she was going to do much.

        • The Pict

          Don't get caught doing that here in LA. Believe it or not putting coins in someone else's meter is illegal and you'll get a lovely ticket for being nice. Gotta love the absolute craziness of this town!

  • da trufe

    Feeding other people's parking meters is illegal…

  • jason

    Adding money to soeones meter is ILLEGAL! Be responsable and keep track of your time slacker!!

    • matt

      Slap yourself. Use spell check …

    • wow.... eatadick

      Says Mr. Perfect. You and the guy above are serious TOOLs

    • edwin winnipeg

      why would anyone thumbs down that comment? apparently they all think we should pay for their parking for them. let the thumbs downing begin!

  • etcrr's goat

    I told etcrr to fuck off, does that count??? It should…..

  • Courtney

    Homework assignments remind me of Fight Club =]

  • LucretiusCarus

    Wow–random acts of kindness for the act of self-aggrandizing via internet postings. My heart just grew three sizes…

    Spare me.

    • Adam

      Just out of curiousity, your last random act of kindness was…..

      If you haven't ever, maybe you should use this post as starting point. I don't believe people only do these for an ego boost. I think there's people out who just genuinely care for the well being of others.

      In a way, do you not see how your own comment slightly contradicts the point you're making? Being that you feel above doing a random act of kindness for reward only? A stretch sure but there's a mild connection. KCCO!!!! Someone get this guy a hug and an ice cream!

      • LucretiusCarus

        I almost typed in my last random act of kindness, but then I realized that I'd be doing exactly what I was railing against up there; doing something cool and then posting it so I can get accolades from strangers on the internet. No thanks.

        But you ALMOST tricked me. For that I give you a thumbs up.

        • Adam

          Lol, so close!! KCCO!!! A thumbs up to you sir!

    • wow

      seems more like this is about sharing a positive attitude then anything even close to anyone looking for kudos or praise. thanks for the unneeded negativity.

    • Tommy

      I agree with you 100%. It's not a random act if you are prompted to do it. Do good for others b/c that is the premise of living a civilized society.

      • LucretiusCarus

        I mean, it's great that the Chive wants us to be better human beings: that's laudable.

        What's weak is that there will now be a bunch of hosebags out there "doing good" so they can get a pic posted on the Chive. I mean, what is the KCCO "mantra" really all about? If it were something all Chivers subscribed to, there wouldn't need to be any missive from Chive Central for anyone to go out in order to do good. It would just happen as a natural consequence of KCCO and this post would be moot. This is only implicit admission on the part of the Chive that Chivers don't really KCCO.

        Yeah. Really warms the cockles of my heart, that does.

  • lackofabetter

    If I see a chiver tonight at happy hour, I will buy them a beer. I will be in the LES

    • lackofabetter

      or Chivette, excuse me

  • USAF

    I'm going to put my size Medium KCCO shirt on ebay with a starting bid of $0.99 and free shipping…

    Does that count?

    I won't turn my next free drink in to a roofie.

    – I will put a lot of salt in it though, and my second free drink…. well….

  • Panigale

    I call bullshit…most of these cunts probably just write some crap down and put it on their own vehicles. Fake. Nobody does this shit. Fekin cunts.

    • HatBomb

      Cynical jaded douche. People do nice shit for no reason all the time. I pay the toll for the person behind me every time a go through a toll booth. Its fun.

      • stop lying

        no you don't

        • HatBomb

          You don't have to believe me, but its true.

          • Panigale

            Hatbomb, you bitch. The fact that you think paying someone's tollbooth fee is "fun", let's me know how much of a boring cunt that you are. It is definitely a gracious move on your part, but fun? You got to be fucking kidding me. Riding go-carts? Sex? Motorcycles? Boobs? These things that I have mentioned (in no particular order) are "fun" things. Live a little.

            • HatBomb

              Everything you listed is fun too. I never said it was my number one adrenalin rush, you need to lay off the red bull there turbo. Getting a little ahead of yourself with your assumptions.

              • Panigale

                Turbo? Ok, Chief. Paying a toll booth is not fun. Also, I did not make a claim that you said that it was your #1 rush, you fucking clown. $10 says you live/lived with your parents into your 30's. Or you have a studio apartment and snack on lil debbie cakes while gettin wood watching old american pie movies. You bitch. Fuck you.
                editors note* I too watch movies snacking on lil debbies. But it aint the cakes. Biatch.

                • HatBomb

                  You couldn't be more wrong, have fun being angry!

                  • Panigale

                    Hatbomb, you little sweetheart. Did you like your own comment? How precious. Love you. 🙂

            • TheySeeMeChivin

              Have you ever walked up to a register and found out that the person in front of you paid for you? You have no idea who they are, and they have no idea who they are, and you instantly feel great because you know that there are kind people out there, and that this place isn't full of douche bags that just talk down on others. I like to think that making someone's day better, and taking a chance of them making someone else's better is actually a lot of fun. Go-karts are fun for about 20 minutes, I'd take a full day of feeling great over that. How about instead of thinking "nobody does this shit", you try to be the person that does this.

    • stonewall_79

      Because people like you the world is so fucked up.

      • Panigale

        Yes, you are right stonewall. I am the reason this world is so fucked up. It's not war, murderers, totalitarian governments, oppression, thiefs, rapists, genocide, jihad, terrorists….just me, and my fellow compatriots that think paying someones toll fee is not fun. And the guy who quoted fuckin buddha, GTFO. This is teh fucking internets. Relax! You cunt!

        • stonewall_79

          the difference between you and them is that they had the balls to do something but you're just sitting and bitching so you are a little bit worthless than them.

          • Panigale

            I lol'd that you like your own comment. So in your mind murderers have more worth than people that don't kill others? Is that your logic? Genius! Sounds like whats wrong with the world are people like you.

  • The_Dood

    I'm going to go look at a project next week, on my own time, that I'm going to make no money on, for a customer I'll probably never see again, just to help the guy out. Does that count?

      Nah, that just means you're a dumb doormat.
