Random Acts of Kindness

Random acts of kindness seem to be growing in popularity. But what exactly is in it for you?
For centuries, we have heard of people being humane to the less privileged.  We have recently seen big corporations giving to their community. Athletes go visit moribund kids in their hospital beds.  These are high end things that are often well meaning but that don't usually catch the essence of giving.  Especially if you're looking for a photo op.
What I'm referring to here is someone who receives as much happiness giving as the ones who receive his kindness. How often do we hear of anonymous donors?
When these acts of kindness become random, the self has learned to instinctively respect humanity by always striving to do the right thing. Kindness becomes commonplace and inner fulfillment follows. There are few greater rewards and paths to enlightenment and success more positive than respecting others.
