We refer to such things as " Senseless acts of kindness ;~). If you don't have a lot of money to make a big donation, one you can do is carry about five bucks in change and pop it in parking meters close to expiring. I always look for the "Beater" type cars, indicating their owners seem to be living pretty close to the line.
Another you can do if you are lined up for coffee is buy the coffee for the next couple of people behind you, just tell them to pay it forward ;~). Such simple gestures never fail to brighten someone elses day, I know it makes me smile.
