I was reading about the Kansas City Secret Santa today and thought how much fun that would be. It made me start thinking what I would do if I had 40k to spare. So here are some questions.

1. If you had unlimited amounts of money, what type of Random Acts of Kindness would you do? At Christmas or otherwise.

Or even the household chores and Christmas stuff for the elderly--put up their Christmas tree with all of their sentimental ornaments, bake some cookies for them to give visitors, put on some Christmas music.

I think, these types of things are even more meaningful, than financial contributions. Both are necessary, but, giving of one's time, a most precious resource, is sometimes (dare I say often times) harder to do.

I think if one picks an angel from the tree, they need to make sure they are going to donate a gift for that angel. That would be a great area for random acts of kindness.
