A Random Act for A Pizza Delivery Person

What is more special, giving someone something they expect or to give the unexpected.  Many workers live mostly on their tips.  Servers and delivery drivers are a few that really count on their tips to suppliment their income.  This video shows a group of people (this group just happens to be a church group) that decided they wanted to share their good fortunes by doing a good deed for an unexpecting person.  So… they ordered a pizza.  Just one pizza.  They had been learning about being generous. So they decided to show their generosity they took up a special offering.  Her tip was $9 but they have a gift for her of $1046.00 to just help her with her life.  Nothing expected, nothing required. Just a gift.  Thank you Sycamore Creek Church in Pickerington Ohio, for wrapped up a monthly missions emphasis on “Random Acts of Kindness,” by surprising an unsuspecting pizza delivery driver. What a wonderful unexpected gift to a stranger.  What could you do to surprise a stranger with a random act of kindness?  It doesn’t have to be something as big as this example but it could be something as simple as a smile.  Think about it.  You can make a difference.

A Big Surprise for a Deserving Woman

This video starts out as a commercial for Eastern Bank.  What it ends up being is an act of kindness from a community.  Deedee Zgonis owns a pizza parlor with her husband Yani.  Yani passed away at 54 years old and left her alone to run the restaurant.   We all know how difficult it is to lose a loved one but imagine how much harder when that loved on is your business partner. She found it hard to even come into work. She had to learn all aspects of the business.  She stepped up and learned all about the business. She went to the bank for a loan and they learned her story.  The bank and the community wanted to help her.  The bank sent her and a friend on a spa weekend.  She went off with her friend to relax and that is when the fun started.  The community came togther and gave her pizza parlor a makeover.  When she returned from her trip she found a whole new look and all with the help of her daughters.  This is just what she needed and also what the community needed to help one of their own.  What an awesome giftto this deserving woman. I know it is a commercial for the bank but it really was so much more.

Inspiring Tip for Pizza Guy

Students at Indiana Wesleyan University come together every Wednesday for chapel.  This week’s message was, “Do for one what you wish you do everyone”.  What an inspiring thought. With that spirit in mind the 3000+ students began writing notes.  At that time the President of the Residential Campus, Dr. Keith Newman, ordered two pizzas from Domino’s Pizza.  His total came to $12.50.  Delivery driver James Gilpin arrived at the chapel and was escorted to the stage.  James didn’t know what was happening.  Dr. Newman thanked him for all he does and gave him a cupcake, a bag of the notes and a tip of $1268 +$70 in gift cards.  James was quite surprised and says he will use the tip money for Christmas for his 5 and 6 year old and that he is drawing inspiration from the thousands of student’s notes.   How amazing that the small acts of individuals can come together to have such a huge effect together.  What an inspiring philosophy.  Keep it up students.  Spread this message to everyone you come in contact with.

Prank for Good – Helping the Homeless

There are many stories about people who do pranks on others.  Most of the time those are to make someone look foolish or to upset someone.  This story is about a prank that is for good.  This prank is on the owner of a pizza parlor.  Watch this video and see how these guys pull this prank on their friend (who owns the store).  But in fact it really is not a prank at all.  It is an opportunity for them to serve the homeless.  Once they get into the pizza parlor (after making up a story that they left their wallet there on a visit earlier in the day) they make short work of making as many pizzas as they can.  They make 30 pizzas.  Then they leave their friend the money for the supplies and go to work.  They head down to a shelter and start handing out hot pizzas to homeless.  They get smiles and even prayers.  They even gave them $5 for drinks as they did not have drinks to pass out.  How wonderful to see the smiles on the faces of the people who they are serving.  But watch closely.  I think they are enjoying giving almost as much as the people who get the pizzas are about receiving.  Giving is a wonderful thing.  This is my kind of prank.  Thank you guys for showing us how fun it is to give.

Thanks to Amy W for sending us this story.
