Kindness Breeds Kindness


It's official. Kindness breeds kindness! In case you've ever wondered if tiny acts of kindness really make any difference at all, you can be assured that research has now proven that generosity is contagious. A single act can influence dozens more! Through a series of blog posts tonight, ( via A Year Of Giving via Kendra's blog ---thanks Kendra), I found a great article about kindness that is definitely worth a read. click here to read it

In "A Year Of Giving", this guy gave away $10 a day during 2010 to people he met in the Washington, DC area. In addition to fostering a more altruistic attitude in himself, he met many new people and hopes to have nurtured that spirit in others as well. While that year is now past, he has begun several other projects, one of which is the Worldwide Day Of Giving. The second annual event will be held on June 15 of this year and encourages people all over the world to participate by passing on $10 to someone they meet that day. How cool is that?!?!

I'm going to mark my calendar---sounds like a fun adventure!
