What?! Why?!

Throughout history, MONEY has MOTIVATED people to do many BAD things (lying, cheating, stealing, and worse!)... So, why can't we flip the script and use MONEY as MOTIVATION for GOOD things??


Job #1

We pay you $100 and your job is to spend another $100 (that we give you) to buy things for strangers (coffee? groceries? etc.). 

Job #2

We pay you $100 and your job is to just give away another $100 (that we give you) - giving $10 to each of 10 different people who you observe doing their job with exceptional pride, extraordinary patience, or an extremely positive attitude. It could be a cashier, a janitor, a crossing guard, a receptionist, a restaurant server - whomever you feel deserves it!!!

Job #3

We pay you $100 and your job is to give away another $100 (that we give you) - giving $10 to each of 10 different people who you observe doing acts of kindness for others!

Job #4

We pay you and your job is to hand out FREE UMBRELLAS on rainy days - through our sister-site: FreeUmbrellas.org 

Job #5

Wildcard! - YOU tell US what Acts Of Kindness we should pay you to do! If we love it, we'll add it to the list!

Additional Info

Note 1: We eventually hope to be hiring for MANY MORE jobs like this - and to find corporate sponsors to allow us to increase both the quantity of jobs and the monetary details of each!

Note 2: Each job will require you to write a brief recap of each thing you do (could be as short as a single sentence - figure "Tweet-Length"), both for our records and also to help encourage the movement on social media!

Note 3: You'll be given a note/card to hand out with each act to explain what you're doing (so nobody think you're crazy and/or questions you're motives)

P.S. In anticipation of responses from critics and trolls...

1. "But it's not a 'RANDOM' Act of Kindness if you're instructing people to do it!" 

Ok...  Would it make you happier if we removed the word "Random"?  Ok, done. You can now access this web page via both RandomJobsOfKindness.com AND JobsOfKindness.com. Happy? :)

2. "What does that say about society when people are only doing acts of kindness when they're getting paid for it?"

We have lots of responses to this...  

First: Why would you use the word "only" in that question? We believe there are already many, Many, MANY people doing many, Many, MANY acts of kindness with no compensation, no reward, no recognition, etc. (And that's awesome!) But if we can motivate/incentivize MORE people to do MORE acts of kindness, well, we just don't see how that can be a bad thing...  

Second: For better or worse, money motivates people. Money can sometimes be motivation for BAD things (like corruption or theft or worse)... so why is it a bad thing if we also use money as motivation for GOOD things too?

Third: If you think it's disingenuous, simply don't participate, don't apply, and feel free to go visit one of the Eleventy Sleven Bazillion OTHER websites on the internet instead of this one... Problem solved! :)  

The Application Process:

Go DO an Act of Kindness... then email us and TELL US ABOUT WHAT YOU DID! (info@JobsOfKindness.com)
