Woman’s Discovery Of Anonymous Gift Inside Her Book Inspires More Acts Of Kindness

Random acts of kindness are the most selfless way to help a stranger. No credit is asked for or expected, it’s simply done out of generosity. This is why a recent anonymous gift discovered within the pages of a book has inspired a viral thread about paying it forward.

Ashley Jost was shopping at a Target in Columbia, Missouri last week when she picked up a new book.

Jost purchased Girl, Stop Apologizing: A Shame-Free Plan for Embracing and Achieving Your Goals by Rachel Hollis as part of a reading challenge she committed to with her friends which consisted of reading 10 pages of a book every day for 75 days.

After returning home, the 27-year-old started reading her new book on the couch when she was distracted by her dog. Jost tossed the book to the side and noticed a $5 bill fell out.

She flipped through the pages and discovered a pink sticky note between the chapters.

The note read: “To the person who buys this book: I am having a tough day. I thought maybe I could brighten someone else’s with this little surprise. Go buy a coffee, donut, or a face mask. Practice some self-care today. Remember that you are loved. You are amazing. You are strong. Love, Lisa.”

Jost was touched by the random act of kindness.

“I thought it takes someone really special to divert the energy and attention on a bad day to improving someone else’s,” Jost told BBC. “I know if I was having tough day I’d just want to sit in my pajamas eating ice cream!”

She later shared a photo of the note on her Twitter account.

Her tweet reads: “I just finished a chapter of a book I bought at Target in Columbia, Mo., this morning. Afterward, I tossed it on the ottoman and $5 fell out onto the floor. Then I found this note. Wow. People are so cool.”

Since posting, the tweet has garnered more than 3,000 likes and was also shared to the popular Facebook page Love What Matters.

People were in love with Jost’s story.

And some were even inspired to share their own good deeds.
