Kind Acts From Kailua To Kapolei

Dear Pamela,

I wish to send APPLAUSE to a nice lady named Wanda. She did a random act of kindness and generosity by paying for my purchases at Longs Kailua.

I felt a rush of surprise and then deep gratitude to be on the receiving end. Best aloha and mahalo nui loa, Wanda!

Aloha Pamela,

While waiting in line at the Salt Lake Longs, a cashier informed me that two lovely ladies ahead of me paid for my items.

This beautiful gesture touched me deeply, particularly because I did not know them. Hopefully, they will read this letter and know their actions confirmed, once again, that life is about relationships and having a positive attitude. May the joy their actions conveyed be multiplied a thousandfold in their lives!

Dear Pamela,

I would like to thank the person who had found my bus pass at the bus stop in front of Tamura’s on Farrington Highway in Waianae.

The cashier told me someone brought the pass to the Kalihi substation.

Dear Pamela,

After purchasing items at Waipio Costco, I went to pick up my wife in Waipahu. It was then I noticed I didn’t have my phone. Oh my gosh, I had left it in the shopping cart in my belly pouch with my wallet!

My wife called Costco to see if someone turned it in. Would you believe someone did?

There were two people involved: the person who found it and an employee who turned it in to lost and found. No names were given. I want to send a big Mahalo for their kindness and honesty.
