A kind stranger left an R10 note inside a book at the Centurion Bargain Books as a way to bring a smile to the finder showing random acts of kindness can take any shape!


Centurion, South Africa (20 July 2020) – Kindness comes in all forms but when it comes by surprise, it is the very best feeling in the world! That was what Wendy mo’Afrika learned recently while browsing books at the Bargain Books in Centurion.

While Wendy was browsing, one of the books she opened had a note and an R10 note slipped inside. The note said:

“Finders, Keepers.
Here is a R10 discount on whatever you want in life.
Much Love, Anneke”

Bianca Noel-Barham, the marketing manager for Bargain Books reached out to share the beautiful act of kindness with Good Things Guy.

“I just thought I would share this incredible act of kindness. During these times even the smallest gesture can mean a great deal to someone. I really think Anneke’s act of kindness should be noticed and admired.” – Bianca Noel-Barham

We agree, it is a lovely gesture and one that would really bring a smile to the face of the person that finds the little treasure.
