Something about the holidays dramatically increases the number of random acts of kindness. This week, we heard about so many acts of selfless service that we decided to do a roundup, and ask you to contribute your own act of selfless service in the comments.
Here are five random acts of selfless service.
Random Acts Of Pasta
This may be a viral marketing tactic from Olive Garden, but the idea is clever. The concept: Olive Garden offered an unlimited pasta pass for $100, which entitled cardholders to unlimited pasta for 7 weeks. A man buys the pass, and proceeds to use it 125 times to feed friends, family and homeless people.
