Random Acts of Kindness: A Social Site I’d Love to See

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” - Dalai Lama

I don’t think anything like this exists yet, so if you’re looking for an idea for a website/service, I’ve got one for you:

Random Acts of Kindness: A Social Site to Create Happiness

This site would be a way to do nice things for other people, and get rewarded for it.

Here’s how I envision it working:

So what’s the point of such a site? It promotes kindness to strangers. It makes you feel good to do something nice for someone else, and thus makes you a little happier. It helps you to remember to be grateful. It’s certainly a lot better than some social sites where people trash each other all the live-long day.

I don’t know if anyone will ever create such a site, but I’d love to see it. How about you?
