Practice random acts of kindness.

I love random acts of kindness. They are such a simple way to brighten someone's day. And I smile along the way two. Hopefully, you don't have too much trouble thinking of and acting on ways to be kind, but just in case, here are two sites devoted to spreading random acts of kindness:

* Random Acts of Kindness Foundation "inspires people to practice kindness and to “pass it on” to others. We provide free educational and community ideas, guidance, and other resources to kindness participants through our website at www.actsofkindness.org.

* HelpOthers.org works to "encourage 'small acts with great love'" because "kindness is contagious."

Visit these sites and find:

--> Ideas for kind acts.
--> E-cards and smile cards to spread kindness.
--> Newsletters, inspirational stories, quotes and much more.

Inspired? Motivated to act? Let us know about your random act of kindness (given or received). And remember to spread the love.

"No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted." - Aesop

I,too,love random acts of kindness.

Sometimes,just for fun, I drop
a few coins where I know someone
will find them.

I'm sure they love to discover
that sometimes,you just don't find
anything than pennies.

What a fun blog to discover! I feel the same way - our entire family does random acts of kindness as a hobby! In fact, we started a company called Angel Quest - The Random Acts of Kindness Cards (www.angelquest.com) as a game to get families/folks to get out there and have fun doing acts of kindness! In the words of Gandhi "Be the change you wish to see in the world." That is what kindness is all about!

This is such a great blog!! There are some really great ideas on here for ways to brighten people's day. Who knew that such a simple act could have such a big impact. Another great site to look at is www.elphos.org It is a site that spreads positive messages through the mail. I've received a letter through them, and it really made my day so much better.

This is great stuff!

I recently became motivated enough in my quest to become a better person to try to encourage others to do the same. The way I've chosen to go about this is through a random acts of kindness challenge, which I'm hosting here at blogger. My goals are small, but my dreams are big, and I encourage everyone to check out the challenge.
