The Grade 11 class at Victoria School of Visual and Performing Arts were the first to try it.

Some students put toonies in envelopes all over the city. Some distributed free hot chocolate in downtown Edmonton.

Kimee Lewis, 16, left small gifts all over her mom’s office where morale is low after recently announced staff cuts.

“The best part is seeing people happy,” she said.

The students were invited to kick off Servus Credit Union’s Feel Good Ripple campaign, which aims to inspire random acts of kindness across the province.

The money is distributed in $10 increments at branch locations across the province. You can plug a stranger’s expired parking meter or buy them lunch.

Recipients are encouraged to perform their own good deed.
