Have you noticed your friends or neighbors making a difference in the Cascade area? We want to know about it!
Whether it's taking a stray dog to a shelter, taking out trash for a sick neighbor or helping out in a community garden, every random act of kindness is appreciated by the community.
Zee Taylor of southwest Atlanta told Cascade Patch that she is constantly doing random acts of kindness. "It is everywhere. When I open a door for a older person or even when I leave change for a person at the gas station." When asked what act she would perform this weekend, she said she, "honestly I don't know. I guess that's why it is random."
We want to see how many random acts we can inspire across the United States in the 905 communities Patch covers. If you know of someone who has done a good deed in Cascade, tell their story in the comments section below.
