A small gesture can mean a lot, and that was the case for Lithgow woman Kylie Young who came across a random act of kindness kicking her New Year off positively, in Railway Street on Wednesday, January 2.
Ms Young came outside to find a kindhearted person had left a tonneau cover and a dash mat in the back of her Ute with a small note.
The note read,
“I recently traded my Ute in, got nothing for it, so I wasn’t going to give them a new cover as well, noticed you didn’t have one. Enjoy. Happy New Year. Got dash mat as well.”
Shocked by the generosity of a stranger Ms Young took to social media to thank and try track down the anonymous gifter.
In her Facebook post she stated,
“Thank you so very much, just goes to show us that there are still some good people in this world! Wish you would of left a number so we could thank you personally or at least buy you a beer. Cheers!”
Ms Young also asked people to share the post in the hope that the person would come across it and see just how appreciative she was of the gesture.
There was an instant positive response with the post receiving over 500 shares and several comments such as “Small gestures can make the world a better place, it all helps,” and “Restores our faith in humanity, when acts of kindness like this occur. What an awesome human.”
