The Motorcyclist With A Different Agenda Posted by KarmaTube.org, Mar 05 2014 Last week's featured video on KarmaTube received 5959 views and 13 comments. "Moin Khan was born and raised in Lahore but went to the United States to attend university. Frustrated with the way in which his home country was portrayed in the media, he decided to leave his comfort zone and embark on an epic journey back to Pakistan. For 18 month he lived on boiled rice and ketchup, held 3 jobs and worked 70 hrs a weeks to save up enough money to ride his motorcycle from San Francisco to Lahore, carrying only a tent, a sleeping bag, some tools and the will to tell the world that he – as a Pakistani – was just as peace-loving as anyone else in the world. He didn't use any maps, because he wanted to get lost and let strangers be his guides. He did get lost. About 50 times a day - equaling 50 opportunities to talk to people and tell them about his country. After his triumphal return to Pakistan, he continued his 'different agenda' - staying on to teach women how to ride motorcycles, and distributing warm clothing in rural Pakistan." ...

A Dear Friend And I Were ... Posted by Nivendra- Uduman, Mar 05 2014 A dear friend and I were talking today about how he wanted to just walk across India, to discover generosity and to discover himself. One thing that struck me from his conversation was when he said " Now I laugh always, I laugh at others, but when I end my journey I will have a smile on my face and I will smile with others". Beautiful.

Let Them Know They're Special Posted by Bela Shah, Mar 04 2014 We just received this lovely story from a recent Kindness Contest winner:) Too often, I think that small things in our everyday lives get taken for granted. When a long-lost friend calls to say a random hello, it can definitely make your day. Knowing that people care and do nice things for your family when you're living far away... they probably have no idea how much that means to you. Or, what about the child you used to nanny for that checks-in once in a while to keep you posted on how they are doing, even though they are full-grown adults now? These are all things that give me something to look forward to, and make a huge difference in my day, but all of a sudden I feared that they had no idea how much those things meant to me, so I wanted to do a "random act of kindness" to ...

Cleaning The River Posted by KindSpring.org, Mar 04 2014 I live in a beautiful village. An ancient, but small, river slowly winds its way through the heart of the village. Visitors come from all over England to enjoy our village and the neighboring countryside. But, lately, people have been tossing their rubbish into the river, leaving it looking sad and neglected. So, I found my longest pair of gum-boots, a pair of elbow-length rubber gloves, a hefty rubbish sack, and waded down into the river. I cleaned out all the plastic bottles, potato-crisp packets, broken beer bottles, takeaway cartons, and all the plastic I could find. My refuse sack was filled, the river was cleared, and I got to enjoyed my home town from a whole new perspective! ... full story: Cleaning The River
