We bet that lady, who helped a lost tourist and also spared some change for a homeless man (bless her), wasn’t thinking too much about increasing her karma levels. And by acting selflessly, perhaps she doubled the value of her good deeds.
While we doubt that qualifies her to win the million-pound jackpot (although you never know), we do think she’ll get back a ton of positive energy, or at least a seat on her busy train to work.
To find out what your karma level is and whether you’re behaving altruistically, we’ve designed the Karma Calculator. Let us do the maths, while you do the deeds.
Do you always hold the door open for someone behind you?
Do you always say 'bless you' when someone sneezes?
Do you offer to help your friend with carrying bags if they carry more than one?
Do you donate to charity?
Would you help a mother carry her pushchair up the stairs? Or someone with a suitcase?
Would you work in a charity shop/soup kitchen voluntarily for one day?
Would you stop to help a lost tourist?
Would you give spare change to a homeless person?
If someone dropped a £10 note and you saw, would you return it to them?
Would you offer your seat to an elderly, pregnant or disabled person?
Would you stop someone being verbally abused in a public space?
If you bought someone a gift would you expect someone to give you one back?
