Christmas is a time of goodwill and kindness to all and no one typifies that better than eight-year-old Jasmine Baber of Limpsfield Village. Jasmine, a pupil at a Bletchingley primary school, is working her way through her ’24 Random Acts Of Kindness’, which began on December 1 and will end on December 24.
Jasmine is completing one chosen task a day: So far she has made a festive card for a soldier, picked up litter, taken supplies to an animal shelter, let someone go in front of her in a queue and told a silly joke to make someone laugh.
Between now and Christmas Eve Jasmine has various jobs to carry out, including donating food to a food bank, taking coffee to her teacher, getting in touch with a friend, paying for a stranger’s coffee, taking treats to Oxted fire station, feeding birds and smiling, for a day, at everyone she sees.
Jasmine’s mum, Jessica said: “I found the Random Acts idea on the internet and was shocked when Jasmine announced she would rather spread some kindness than eat the chocolate from an advent calendar.”
