| by Sean Kelly

A group of 12 anonymous women in Nebraska bestowed a random, kind gesture on a local community member.

Jamie Smith, of Blair, Nebraska, works at a local thrift shop that doubles as a food pantry. 

“You know it's a wonderful place to work, you can help the community and at the same time you're making a pay check, you know that's the best,” Smith told KMTV.

This week, Smith received a random letter, flowers and an envelope filled with money.

A police officer saw a young black couple drive by and pulled them over. What he did next left them stunned:

“The letter says, 12 area women who wish to remain anonymous feel you are very special,” Smith said. “The enclosed gift is given in the spirit of love and is yours to do with as you wish. Please accept it as a random act of kindness.”

Smith said she was stunned and grateful for the women’s gesture.

“You know, truly the flowers would have been enough. I would have loved to come home to just the flowers, but the money just made it so much easier,” the mother of seven said.

Smith subsequently took to Facebook to share the story.

“I wanted to reach out because maybe one of those 12 women would see that and see how I felt, you know my heart was so full, I just wanted to share it,” she wrote. 

Another random act of kindness coming from the state of Nebraska occurred a few months ago, when a 20-year-old man with Down syndrome who was given tickets to his first University of Kansas Jayhawks basketball game by a complete stranger.

The game was unforgettable for the 20-year-old, KCTV reported at the time.
