I know my story isn't much, but a couple of years ago when I was working as a server I had this man in his late 20's, early 30's sit at one of my tables. He was blind and therefore could not read the menu. When I asked him what he would like to order he told me to get him the cheapest steak in the menu and handed me 8 dollars, which was all he had. I didn't say anything, I took his money and with my tips I upgraded his steak from a 6oz (I think it was about $9) to an 11oz (which was about $15). As little as it was, I like to think that, that one day, I made a difference.

I was working for the carnival this summer running the gravitron, as you would guess the job doesn't pay well, so you end up living off food cards that are taken off you next pay.   
   
This one spot we where at my food cards ran out and i was low on money, this isn't the first time this has happened I usually just get a few free pieces of pizza from my friend in a concession to hold me off till payday but he couldn't this week the bosses were being strict this spot for some reason.   
    
One day this child comes rushing up to my ride dragging his mom behind him begging to go on the ride, she tries explaining to him that they're out of tickets and can't afford anymore. This is when the kid stars throwing a tantrum, I can see that the mother is exhausted and almost looks like she's going to break down herself. I tell her that her kid can go on for one free ride  i can see the look of relief in her so the kid runs on and she thanks me, i tell her it's no problem i always have extra tickets on me for things like this.   
   
 At this point i haven't had food in a day or two and my gut lets off a sound i can only describe as black metal screaming, i end up explaining my situation to her by the time i finished the ride was done and her kid dragged her away.   
   
The next day she comes back with a home cooked meal for me and the other two people that work the ride with me, like a full dinner dessert and all for each of us, (we  haven't had home cooking for probably 3 months) we were just staring at her with our jaws on the ground trying to find words to say all we can think of is thank you. she says it's the least she could do for saving her from a mental break down in the middle of the fair grounds.

This is one that I actually did myself recently, though it was a relatively minor one. It's a little long, so I can't post it as anon, if you choose not to believe me, then just imagine it was somebody else that did it. Not that it was a major feat on my part anyways.

I have a night class that ends at 10pm. While walking back to my car at the end of class, I noticed two of my classmates talking at their cars. A guy had parked his truck at a sloped angle with very little gas. This made his car unable to start, because all the gas had flowed away from the ignition spark. He was talking to a girl about the problem, she offered him a ride but he insisted that if he couldn't get it to start, he would call his friend to bring some gas for him. So she wished him good luck, and drove home.

I overheard a little of the conversation, and asked him about what the problem was, and he told me about the gas problem. So I thought up a solution: put the truck in neutral, and use the momentum given by the gravity to point the truck uphill. He gave it a shot but was only able to get halfway to pointing it uphill, and it still wouldn't start.

I had one last idea, keep it in neutral, and have somebody (in this case me) push it further uphill, with the driver putting it back into park when I said so. We tried it, I got the truck to point mostly uphill, and he gave it another go, and this time the truck started for real. He thanked me, and I gave him directions to the nearest gas station.

Okay, so I have a sotry from when I was a youngin
>Be around 6 years old
>One day, see homeless with my mom, I ask her why he's sitting there, she explains homelessness to me
>Mum explains that it's a good idea to give a little change to them because they need it to stay warm in the winter (this was late september/early october)
>Ask mum how they stay warm
>"I don't know, lots of clothes and coffee?"
>Later that night, I crack open my piggy bank (had around 25$, was saving up for the new Gameboy)
>Leave note for parents saying "I will be back soon Please don't be mad mom" or something like that
>Go to McDonalds, slam all my money on the counter and say "how much coffee can I get for this", the girl behind the counter asks me where my parents are and what I need coffee for
>Explain the situation to her
>She tells manager, he asks me if I have a phone number for my parents, I tell him the number
>They call my parents, and while they are on their way to pick me up, the cashier lady takes me outside with like 10 cheeseburgers and 10 cups of coffee, and we go around giving it to the homeless
(this was right next to a homeless shelter, so there was alot of homeless people right there)
Parents swing around, mad as **** but the manager calms them down
They yell at me, telling me never to leave at night anymore


Get home, tfw no new gameboy, but so worth it
I later found out that the manager had paid for the coffee and stuff out of own pocket, and had given my parents the money. They got me a gameboy for my birthday.

Ehh, lil story from me =)

I remember a story from when I was younger, I don't remember all the details, but here it goes.

My mom worked at a nursing home on the weekends and at night, so usually having no money to pay for a baby sitter or day care, she would take me with her. One night she was cleaning some rooms when this older guy (65-70 years old) was walking through the automatic doors, he must have been walking pretty fast and he hits his head really hard on it and falls unconscious on the floor. Me being somewhere around 6 years old, I had no idea what to do, so I did the best thing I could do, I ran grabbed a towel and a pillow, I put the towel over his head cause he was bleeding pretty bad and put the pillow under his head. Then I ran and grabbed my mom and told her and she called the hospital. The man thanked me and the paramedics said I did a good job.

One time, I was walking down a pretty oftem-used street when I saw a homeless person looking very... dead. I walked up to him, woke him up (turns out he wasnt dead) and started talking with him. I found out hes just an english guy (it was in Prague) who was robbed by the "hotel", and he didnt speak a word czech, and noone believed him in english... so we rode the public transport to the nearest police station, I explained that to them and registered as a witness, then we went to the british embassy and sorted things out, and at the end (this took like 4 hours) I gave him 2000 czk (like 100 bucks) to get long util things get sorted out... now were penbuddies and Im to visit him in england this summer

I'm used to seeing funny/junkish stuff on this site, so this - a series of inspirational posts - was new for me, and I have to say you're doing great work.

I have slight depression (self-diagnosed, so dont take my word for it) so these definitely cheered me up. However, for someone who's much sadder than me, these can make a world of difference. You never know when a smile can make someone's day/save a life.

Keep it up!

See the thing is, it's hard being generous but poor.

There are so many people I want to help but I just don't have the money to do it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but, although it's a selfless act, wouldn't the radiation still be clinging to the elderly after they were deceased? In fact, it seems like they'd be hurting people financially because they'd have to be buried a special way, if buried at all (I have no idea what effect cremation would have on radiation).
