I heard a very touch­ing sto­ry by NBC’s Ann Cur­ry the oth­er evening.  We’ve all heard about the tragedy in New­town, CN and have strug­gled to under­stand how and why some­thing like this could hap­pen.  It’s not often that I watch the news — I’d rather sur­round myself with hap­pi­ness than the depress­ing sto­ries that typ­i­cal­ly lace the news.  How­ev­er, as I sat wrap­ping presents, I heard Ann tell her sto­ry of how just a few days pri­or she had tweet­ed “Imag­ine if every­one could com­mit to doing one act of kind­ness for every one of those chil­dren killed in Newtown.”…and peo­ple lis­tened.  Reports have been com­ing in from lit­er­al­ly all over the globe — on ran­dom acts of kind­ness — and it’s going viral.

From send­ing first respon­ders thank you cards, tap­ing an enve­lope with a lit­tle cash in it on the gas pump, to bak­ing cook­ies for a neighbor…people are com­mit­ting acts of kind­ness every­where and they are shar­ing their sto­ries.  You can search Twit­ter for #26Acts to fol­low what peo­ple have been doing (it’s heart­warm­ing & inspir­ing!)

So nat­u­ral­ly, I have been inspired too.  I cre­at­ed cards (down­load here: 26 Acts of Kind­ness Print­able) that I have print­ed on card stock to hand out with my #26Acts.  I plan on writ­ing  a short note on the back of the cards includ­ing the vic­tim the act is in hon­or of.  Who knows — maybe it will inspire that per­son to pay it for­ward in some way.  Either way, I love the idea of help­ing some­one out and remem­ber­ing the vic­tims of Sandy Hook Ele­men­tary.  They are all gone too soon.

I would love to hear from you — have you been inspired to per­form ran­dom acts of kind­ness? Please share your ideas or the ran­dom acts of kind­ness you have already per­formed.   Thank you!

When I was check­ing out at Marshall’s the oth­er day, after wait­ing 40 min­utes on line, every­one was frus­trat­ed. I pur­chased a $10 gift card to give to the next per­son to check out at that reg­is­ter w/a note to spread the love in hon­or of New­town vic­tims. It’s a fan­tas­tic feel­ing and plan on doing sev­er­al more less cost­ly acts. This all has to have meant SOME­thing.


I will be using your beau­ti­ful cards to start my New Years Res­o­lu­tion #26 acts com­mening Jan­u­ary 1 end­ing Jan­u­ary 26 2013!


I real­ly love this idea and espe­cial­ly your down­load. But there were 27 inno­cent vic­tims that fate­ful day and I can’t in good con­scious leave Nan­cy Lan­za out. Is there a way to add her name? I appre­ci­ate your help. Thanks!

Thanks very much for the print­able cards. This will help me to remem­ber to do this! Thank you for that too. I love this idea and may con­tin­ue even after 27.
