I won 500eur + from betsafe which i was planning to spent on Christmas Presents for my family, well i did spent 200eur for the gifts, but the kind thing i did was that my mother were very low on money during december so i decided to give him a loan of 150eur which she can pay whenever she can, so they can buy Christmas food and stuff.. There is no better feeling than help others when they are in need and i ove so much for my mother, so i don't really care if she pays back or not Also there was my girlfriend's Birthday few months ago, and i was so disappointed that i couldn't bought her anything because my money sectuation was very low, so i decided to buy her a engagement ring and for me too, since we hav lost our earlier rings like years ago, and never really discussed to buy another ones, now that i did my girlfriend was very happy, now we wear these rings and never take them off again hah and also we baked some gingerbreads for our kids with my gf they were very happy when we decorated their names on those cookies = )
I hope that everyone enjoys their Christmas and happy Christmas waiting time everyone
Maybe there will be more act of kindness later on, but i decided to put this here already..
Thanks LCB for the most generous contest ever on LCB history very much appreciated <3 = ) = )
Ohh forgot i also bought a bar night for me and my bro since it is him's B-day on 4 days so i decided that would be the best gift for me, since he ain't got a lot of friends. and have to say we both have great time ( especially what we remember of that night )
I know I’m not perfect -and I don’t live to be- but before you start pointing fingers… make sure you hands are clean!” B.M
Its nice to be kind and spreading good Cheer for Christmas,although we should do that all year long and wont cost us nothing!

I live next to one orphans home which is called 11October in Skopje,thats the city name where iam from,so i didnt do it only one time,but me and my hubby are doing it all year long ,whenever we have chance to see that kids and the reason is that i love those kids..There are few children,orphans ,who plays with my son during all year but specially Summer,so whenever i see that children ,in that moment I am sad,who would leave lovely kids ,like they are and they are all abandoned by their parents and the same time i feel happiness ,just because ,you should see their small sad but happy eyes,when you tell them some good word and specially when i buy them some candy,chocolate,icy cream.3-4 times a year i give them clothes from my son,which they are so grateful .Christmas will be in 1 month so then i will surprised them again specially the day before Christmas Eve (Badnjak) when they will come in front of my house and start singing ,which later i treat them with something nice !Well i think i am doing good deed and I hope that from this small things I make,their day,a bit beautiful,because they deserve, all the happiness in the world like any other child!
I will read your mind and the frightening thing for you is you won't even know it!
Right now I don't have much money so I can only be kind in free ways. Two examples I can think of which I did recently was well today I waited for everyone to get off the bus first women,children and the elderly before getting off myself I also allow others onto the bus before me I just think it is polite and nice. The other example is recently my granda was in the hospital with a chest infection I wrote him a card and sent it up and he was delighted with of course incorporating my humour into it jokingly saying the man who ingests dettol and has been for years gets a chest infection!! (my granda is obsessed with dettol and swears it prevents him coming down with colds/coughs/flu) Another thing I will do is hand in some clothes and other items I don't use to my local charity shop

Random acts of kindness...

It can describe every Christmas in my household, every year in my family since I can remember, and it still continues to this day.
The day before Christmas all the family members gather in my house with Christmas presents (candy, toys, even small Christmas trees fully decorated with lights and everything) for the Christmas Carols. it is truly a site to see, the joy and happiness that is surrounding everyone... all the gifts that are being prepared, holiday music... I imagine that that's how Santa's shop must be like
After all the preparations are ready, on Christmas Eve, my father dresses up like Santa Claus and he waits for the Christmas Carols. It is a truly site to see! The faces on the small carols who want to spread the Christmas cheer from door to door, when the door opens in my house and they see Santa Claus in some random home. He lets them sing and after, every one receives a present that was made by my family.
It is not a "random" act because, after all these years, the Carols know that they will receive presents for their holiday songs, but every year appears some new faces that make all worth it!
Hello, you can always helps as long as you want, whether in small and large sizes, but remember a strange day when I was waiting on traffic lights to cross the street, an old man shouting at the people around him to help him cross, people like him hear , took grandfather's hand and crossed the street, he was very grateful. And I'm not is inherently helped him out with anything but it was valuable that help now thinking that the little things are great for any help. I wish you to be good people and happy holidays and welcome the new year

That's how i like 'em!!
I feel that i should "score" well here, as without false modesty i can say that i am always doing this or that to help someone out, and encourage others to do the same..
I have worked in the Gastronomy for half of my life, so serving people is not only something i have done for a living for years, it is also actually something i really enjoy: it's hard to explain to people that don't feel the same way, but i can't describe it other then, there's no greater reward then making someone happy, or make them smile heartily, it's like a little sunbeam that warms the heart and if you have felt that once, it's something you want to experience more often:)
And it's so easy.. just open a door for someone, or keep it open to let several people through at once, maybe help a person that drops his or her groceries, and make a joke about it, talk to strangers, or at least greet them politely, sometimes try to be forward and just give random people compliments about small things you notice.. like a warm laugh they might have, a cool outfit they happen to wear, a nice smell they carry along, or even a nice or polite deed they are performing..
If you see two workers struggling with a heavy object, lend a hand, and know that many hands make light work, and if we are talking about tipping.. don't limit yourself to tipping waiters, bartenders and hotel receptionists or pages and maybe workers that deliver stuff, or move it, but be silly and tip a cassiere at the local supermarket that was friendly, or a street sweeper that is doing a good job, maybe even tip the busdriver after he drove you smoothly and perhaps gave you a heads up or some directions..
These are things i do,and pretty much always get warm reactions, and even if not, i know i did my best:)
One good thing i did more recently, is that i helped a man out of a big pile of trouble he had, took him from his country and and basically gave him a new start in mine, not so much by monetary means, but helping him learn my language, housing him and showing him the ropes in my country until he was able to work for himself.
He is now very happy here, and a funny twist is that he already has helped me much more then i feel i helped him! just goes to show that it all goes round, as long as you keep doing good!
I think i said it in the previous contest too, but a golden rule is not only that you don't do unto other what you would not have done to you, but rather do onto others that which you would like others to do to you!!
My daughter is a registered nurse, she was caring for a young single Mom of two, a hard working young woman that was in need of help. We invited her and her children to come to our house for Thanksgiving this year as she had no where to go. When she left my family of 4 kids and 10 grandchildren were so impressed with this young woman we decided to help her . We are helping her to continue her schooling to get her nursing license in our state, I am caring for her children so she does not have to pay day care while she is going to school and working. My son has repaired her car and his company was generous enough to but new tires for it. We believe in the proverb : Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. We are getting her on her feet , my daughters put up a tree and have purchased gifts for the children. This sweet young lady has never asked for anything and it has made us all grateful that we are in a position to help her. I have never been more proud of my family . We did so well that we are looking for another needy family in our area . It was so surprising that we got so many people to help. Sometimes when you actually see where your donations go and the happy faces on the people you help it makes such a difference. Putting a toy in a box is wonderful but knowing where it is going was fantastic.

We have found a family that needs some help , they have a teenager with cystic fibrosis that wants to go to Disney World . I believe we will be taking her if her Doctor will approve her trip. She has special medical needs. We live in Florida , 2 hours from Disney so it would be a pleasure to surprise her with this trip. I would ask for a little good wishes for her health so she can go to Disney Very Merry Christmas party with us. I hope all our members try to extend themselves if they can to realize you feel so connected by helping when you can . Good Bless each and every one on this joyous Holiday season!
Oh wow, such a great idea and contest. I'm going to save my entry for a week or two as I'm sure I will be doing a great many nice things between now and the big day... but I totally have to give LCB some credit for encouraging us all to think of those less fortunate at this time of year. Honestly just a great, great idea for a competition, lets spread the love people

May I just say LCB's does show us all year round how much we are appreciated as members. You don't always have to do something big to show you care, it is the little things you can do that makes that person feel special. Have a great Christmas everyone and to LCB.!

gl to all and to all a good nite,
Whenever my husband and I get extra money, we like to give to the special education classrooms in our town. These children are often overlooked and need highly specialized items. Also, in the next town over there is a handicapped man that walks all over town picking up cigarette butts to smoke. I keep a pack in my car and if I happen to see him I give him the pack so he doesn't have to smoke butts.

When still working as a copier technician, the company I worked for suffered financial setbacks so as to jumpstart the company, stricter measures were imposed, including overtime. This affected as field personnel because we can not claim any overtime pay for work done outside the regular office hour.

One Friday, first week of December, all employees on my branch are happy that another week has passed, thus when the Bundy clock chimed 5, everybody rushed to punched out and call it a day. I was the last one left in the office and as I was about to leave the telephone rang. When I answered it, a “high-value” customer was on the line. His color Xerox machine was down and he has a pending job that needs to be delivered first thing Monday morning. I told him that I’ll call him back because I will relay this to my co employee assigned in his area but my co worker enumerated many excuses, so it is up to me what to tell the customer. Thinking for a moment, “ I can tell him that we don’t work on Saturdays , he’s not in my area of responsibility, we are not paid for any overtime, I have a date with my family and I’m not in the mood to travel 100 miles to go to his place”.
Saturday, I travelled 100 miles to his place and fixed his Xerox machine and even stayed until passed noon ‘til all his job were finished. The customer was very thankful for what I did for him and I said that his a good customer of the company, I can reimburses all my expenses but can not claim overtime pay and a day lost intended for my family. All in a day’s work for the good of the company.
Days passed by and came our branch’s Christmas party. All the branch employees and their family are having a good time when our manager interrupted us for what he said is a very important announcement. I was called on stage and was presented a plaque of appreciation and on top of that, a merit increase bonus . The customer, it seems, was told by my co worker assigned to him that we are not paid for any overtime, (his reason for not attending to this customer). so this customer made a letter to our president exalting my effort. Doing good deeds do reap rewards.
Even a broken clock is correct twice a day...
Well at the time I did not really consider it a "RAOK" but upon review I guess it qualifies...two weekends ago a woman of about my age who lived across the street had a moving van show up followed by a large truck...I crossed over to inquire where she was heading and was told her daughter and grandson very moving in...I listened half heartedly to the plight her daughter suffered at the hands of her ex, then offered a hand if needed for heavy stuff and let her know I had dollies and anything they might need to facilitate the move...she told me that there would be 5 or 6 of their friends and they had it all covered...wished them luck and went back to my poker and slot weekend...just as it was getting dark the knock came at the door...I opened to find all three on my doorstep looking tired and worn...had them in for a drink and the long and the short of it was nobody had shown up and nothing could be moved from the truck as it had been loaded with all the small boxes etc up front with all large heavy items wedging and securing miscellaneous debris...so Todd was off to the rescue and more than that I had offered so had to make good on my word...14hrs later I carried the last of "Shelly's and Ryan's" belongings into the house...neighbor lady, Shelly and Ryan having gone to bed 4 or 5 hours earlier...over the course of the next 2 weeks I have helped paint the mother/boys bedroom, retiled their bathroom, hooked all electronics up and installed new dishwasher (highly overrated experience that was)...once again, I want to say, prior to writing this I really had not thought I had done all that much...and I still have a couple things on my list they need/want done...so my Christmas wish for all my fellow LCBers is that if any of you or your families find themselves in need of help that is beyond their financial or any other capabilities, I want to donate my "come around" for the "go around" I have performed...God bless all and have a wonderful Holiday season...(what comes around goes around) Todd aka snklzona

2016-10-23 19:09:07"Hi claralie, The problem comes when they send out their player promos, its hard to sort out who is eligible and who is not. They just send a general promo mailer to their players, that is why you get the special offer even if you are not eligible to cashout because of the no 3 no deposit bonus rule. They would have to segment the lists and monitor each individual account to see if you are eligible. Its is important for you to monitor your gameplay and be aware if you are eligible or not so as to avoid disappointment. Lets see what the rep has to say. "READ
