i went to get food from a local restaurant, in town, on high street where i witnessed someone pay for another persons food since the person did not have enough money on them at the time for their order. the fella who ended up paying for the others meal did not even take the cash that the other man had instead he told him to hold on to it and enjoy his day. the look of joy and appreciation on the mans face who had his food payed for was touching to witness. afterward i went up to the gentleman who had payed for the food and acknowledged him for his act of kindness. i than asked him his reasoning behind his actions to which he responded. " hey, ive been there in that situation wishing someone would do the same for me" after a brief discussion with the man i handed him the bracelet and explained the background behind and why i was giving it to him. to which he seemed quite eager to continue and pass on.

On September 14, I gave the actively caring bracelet 6091 to Anna Magler, currently a junior at WVU. Anna and I were waiting, along with other students, for the College Park shuttle in the pouring rain. We were all huddled together and scanning through the rain looking for the shuttle. I see Anna, leave the line and go over to this man without an umbrella or coat on. She says something to him and handed him her umbrella. He returns a nod and she rushes over to the bookstore. When Anna returned she had an umbrella and handed it to the man. He returned her umbrella and she made her way back to the line. Other students noticed her actions and as we all boarded the shuttle, I witnessed a boy hand the man a sandwich. I chose this moment to hand out the bracelet because there were multiple actions of actively caring, and how Anna’s actions influenced another student to show that they care as well. I informed her, what the bracelet represented and to pass it on to someone else if she sees an act of kindness.
