It’s Random Act of Kindness Day!

Wikipedia defines a random act of kindness as “a selfless act performed by a person or people wishing to either assist or cheer up an individual person or people. The phrase may have been coined by Anne Herbert , who claims to have written “Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty” on a place mat at a Sausalito restaurant in 1982 or 1983.”

Today is a great day to smile at a stranger, leave a flower on a doorstep, sent a handwritten note or card to a friend (just because) or make your spouses favorite supper. Random acts of kindness needn’t be big things, often the smallest gestures of selfless giving have the greatest impact.

What can you do today to make a difference?
