I think you have a good idea. I'm already doing this type of thing.
If I see someone in truck / delivery vechicle, following traffic laws, or kindly letting another vechicle into traffic, etc, I'll call up and the supervisors know.
Other things I do are:
Restaurants - If I've had a good meal and good service, besides a good tip, I'll ask my waitress / waiter to call the manager over and I will tell the manager about the good service I've received. You'd be surprised at the look on thier faces, when I don't complain about something.
In other stores, if I need assistance and receive it, I'll search out a manager and let them know the persons name who helped me and what an "asset" to the company they are.
In my own company - I send emails to managers of employees that I've had contact with and assistance from etc.
Good luck in your venture....

There are so many ways to help out the needy
From the more obvious...
Donating directly to food shelves, shelters etc (from donating a package of pasta to actually providing regular financial donations).
To the less obvious...
There was a local man here in ND, who operated a sort of "deserving charity" thing - people were encouraged to write to him, detailing their need, and if he was able to a) verify they were being honest, and b) the need was genuine, he published their letter in a local paper and donated the financial help that was requested.
Some people are (understandably) a little put-off by the anonymity of such benefactors; others are fine with the idea. How about organising a group who can donate time too? Volunteering somewhere?
There are many of us regular folk doing just that...donating as and when we can, knowing that it's going to a deserving cause
You're doing a great thing.
