Random Acts of Kindness (or Evil with a Twist of Good)

        In our building, we are doing "Secret Santa."  You know the routine: you draw a name, hopefully some information about their likes/dislikes is included, and you buy little gifts for them for a week or two.  Sometimes you get a person you're not particularly fond of, but I won't go any further with that...

      Some people are participating. Some are not, so a few of us got together and have masterminded a fun scheme.

       We choose--randomly--a person every day or so, and one of us gives them an extra gift.  We are not their Secret Santa. Since some of the people we choose are not even participating in the gift-giving, they're really thrown for a loop. It creates a funny bit of confusion, because the Secret Santa will see a 2nd gift for their giftee, and they're puzzled. They know they didn't wrap that gift and put that gift tag on it...Who could it be?

       It's always fun to mess with people's minds...

        On a side note, if anyone is not already collecting Boxtops for Education, and would not mind cutting them off boxes/packages and sending them my way, I would appreciate it.  Our school uses them to get extra materials for our kids.  You could send them to:

Sioux Roslawski
Griffith Elementary School
200 Day Drive
Ferguson, MO. 63135



  1. What a great idea! This had me thinking that it would be fun to do this random gifting throughout the year. One person each week would get a little gift anonymously. I think I might start that in January. Thanks! :)

  2. Yes, what a fun idea. Plus, it's fun to mess with people. Keeps them on their toes.
