I gave up my seat on the tube this morning. It doesn’t sound like much, but for those of you who commute across London you know how precious sitting down on a packed carriage can be.
While it wasn’t a life changing gesture, hopefully it was one of those little things that made the bag-laden woman’s morning a bit more pleasant. It was really the least I could do on Random Acts of Kindness Day, which, for the record, is today.
It got me thinking about some of my favourite Coca-Cola moments when they’ve done something completely random to make people smile, which there are plenty of – take a look below!
When students at a London university got more than just a Coke from their campus vending machine.
When StreetGames volunteer, Rachael O’Brien, got a surprise visit from the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy Tour.
When Coca-Cola enlisted the help of six vloggers across five different YouTube channels to spread happiness in unsuspecting ways for Happiness Week.
When truck driver Matt Smith fulfilled his childhood dream and became the first member of public to drive the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas truck.
5. A Local Hero
The credit for this random act of kindness actually belongs to Neils Kegg, a volunteer in Newcastle, who used ParkLives from Coca-Cola Great Britain to start up a hugely successful five-a-side football league for young people in his local community.
