Random Acts of Kindness | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Random Acts of Kindness

I believe I've seen short pieces in the Source from folks thanking others for their kindness when out and about. I hope you think this qualifies, as I want to thank this individual again and publicly

I believe I've seen short pieces in the Source from folks thanking others for their kindness when out and about. I hope you think this qualifies, as I want to thank this individual again and publicly:

I love the Barenaked Ladies, however, buying tickets wasn't in the cards, so I went to the concert in hopes of finding a spot to listen. I found a spot near the entrance. Just as the band came out, the most incredible random act of kindness occurred. This fellow came up with a ticket in his hand and looked up as I was standing on the rock wall.He said he'd been looking for someone to give his ticket to and I was the one! I was so speechless that I'm not sure I even thanked him! The concert was great fun and I hope he sees this and knows how thrilled I was and still am!

Thank you so much; you made my year!

Cheers,

- Linda Hoffman
