If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Last Friday, three hours before shabbos, I told the mid level on the team that I'd handle everything until shabbos myself, since she would be handling everything over shabbos.  Double kiddush Hashem, because I was shomer shabbos, and did chessed.

Not sure if this counts, since I don't know if they realized I was jewish, but...

Found a Mavic Pro Drone while hiking a few weeks ago. Tried searching how I could track its owner, finally pulled the SD card, used the GPS coordinates from the pictures of a backyard party to pull up the house, then looked up the people who lived there, then looked up their phone numbers and called them, and they knew the owners of the drone, so we were able to return it to them.

They came and picked it up, we left it in our mailbox for them. They actually left us $50, which really wasn't necessary, but they only told us afterwards. Nice of them!

I was trying to figure out a way to do that without sounding like I was being arrogant about it, but couldn't figure out a way...

It's important (esp these days) to let it be known that Jewish people give back once in a while too. We are built on these concepts actually.

True but it could have the opposite effect.

Neh, the day before, perhaps. Not when he's returning s/t of importance to him.
