Young Man Gives Compliments To Strangers To Encourage Small Acts Of Kindness

Would you walk up to complete strangers just to tell them they are good human beings? Drew Formsma is a young man who gives compliments to strangers to encourage small acts of kindness. And let’s just say, this young man is having a ripple effect in the lives of many.

Drew knows this world is filled with so much turmoil. Strangers we pass on the street are going through struggles, problems, and battles we don’t even have a clue about. So, what is Drew’s remedy? Give compliments with a gift card for coffee. Talk about the perfect ‘pick me up’ for any day. He says nothing is more important in this world than encouraging people, loving people, and offering a little hope for humanity itself. Drew believes love needs to be brought back into the community. He brings the instructions from Corinthians to life as he stands strong and does everything in love. Isn’t he the hands and feet of Jesus in real life? We like to think so.

This video is so incredibly uplifting and heartwarming as he encounters strangers on a Monday morning just to stop them in their tracks for just a moment to offer up a healthy dose of encouragement. On the cards he gives to strangers, he wrote words of inspiration too! One of the first ones says, “Love can’t exist without giving,” and isn’t that the rock-solid truth? Just as Jesus laid down his life for us, Drew reminds us of how we can encourage each other in small ways.

One gentleman was having a rough Monday morning. He was on his way to give a presentation when he found Drew’s words of encouragement and a coffee card. He responded with heartfelt gratitude as he informed Drew, “You just made my day. I have a presentation to give and this is the perfect opening. Thank you.”

Another woman approached Drew in her car after she saw him walking through the parking lot. Her smile could be captured from a drone camera several feet away and she agrees we all could attempt to be a little kinder to those around us.

Perhaps we all can take a lesson of inspiration from this video and find ways to spread a little encouragement in kindness. It doesn’t have to cost us anything other than being willing to offer a smile, open a door, or give a kind word!

“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love,” 1 Corinthians 16:13-14.
