Patience is nice (really).
By Christine Stoddard
Virginia truly is for lovers! For Richmond blogger, Patience Delgado, cataloguing good deeds is a year-round endeavor. With every post, the so-called “Kindness Girl” inspires her online readers to fight for goodness across the world.
Patience started her upbeat blog in 2006, after a coffee-loving friend died. Shortly thereafter, Patience and her friends left $1,000 worth of Starbucks gift cards all around Richmond’s Carytown shopping district in honor of the dearly departed.
Since then, Patience has prompted readers to leave notes of gratitude for their garbage men, go caroling with ukuleles, and even raise $14,000 in a single week for harassed LGBT and Jewish organizations. Since fall 2011, she has also contributed to The Huffington Post’s “Good News” section every week.
What a do-gooder!
