So many are sharing their stories of love, hope, loss, and the spirit of giving with others. I see so many in this group that I have known for years and others that are quickly becoming wonderful acquaintances and friends. You can give a little or give a lot. The most important thing is lifting each other up — on days of gloomy weather, long work days and weeks, celebrations and sadness. These Random Acts of kindness with others are making their way all of the United States as the group grows on a daily basis.
You receive a box in your mailbox from someone in the group who has chosen to shop from your Amazon Wish List. Your Wish List can contains items you use every day, or ‘wants’ of things you might not wish to purchase for yourself.
So, how do you get started ?
What is and is not acceptable ? Etc.
Read on as I will try to break it down in a number of quick tips.
Step 1: Create and Amazon Wish List.
You do NOT have to be an Amazon Prime member; however, many are joining Prime JUST to receive the Free Shipping and Free Returns benefits. (There IS a 30-day trial, if you wish to test it out first).
For those who have an account:
Go to to www.amazon.com and sign in to your account. Go to “Your Account” tab and select “Your Lists” from the drop down menu.
(Photo Below) Click on the THREE Dots and a drop down menu pops up. Click on “Manage Lists”
Then you will have the following pop up:
After you get through this step,
MAKE SURE to click SAVE CHANGES.
Be sure to search for items that you wish to add to your list.
Here are a few helpful tips:
- Be sure to have a variety of priced items
- The more items you have priced $1-10, the higher your chances are to receive
- Know that just because your have items on your list, there is no guarantee you will receive these
Make sure your read the group rules below to see how this works.
IN order to effectively be in this group, the best way to start is to post a little introduction as to why YOU wish to be involved. Some keep it short and sweet. Others like to go into details as to why your joined. The MAIN thing you MUST do is ask for a specific audience to comment (i.e. where are all the sports moms ? anyone battled breast cancer ? who LOVES to cook and what is your favorite dish ?? ))
Invite your friends, family, co-workers and anyone else to this group and watch it grow. DO NOT blast to your entire friends list (as this automatically adds them to the page). There are three security questions that
How to share your link in a post (where permitted):
Reminder: WHEN You post your link, anywhere in the group, please make sure to post some text as to not get blocked. You may end up having to take a break (as in photo to the right).
You can post every now and then. Just keep in mind not to post to appear ‘needy’. The more creative you get with your posts, the more people will want to follow you.
You sort through lists, upon lists, etc. and choose what you wish to buy. Once you located an item, be sure to add to cart and then checkout.
(It is advised to do one purchase at a time (OR your entire shopping cart will go to one person).
—- When you get to the ‘Gift Receipt’ item, this is totally up to you whether you include your name, or to remain anonymous. The goal is to share a piece of your heart without any expectation in return (including thank yous, gifted back, etc).
When you receive items, many choose to take a photo and place online with a small thank you. It is also encouraged, IF you do so, to post the link to the items received in your text, as well, as some may want to add that same item to THEIR wishlist.
We want to see how this group is spreading #RandomActsofKindness to #GrowInLove.
Don’t forget to share the love.

You can always do a replay at a later date.
