#26acts #act1

I'm sure many of you have heard of the "26 Acts of Kindness" movement that Ann Curry sparked, but for those that haven't, it's a joint effort to honor those 26 lives that were lost in the Newtown shooting. After the senseless traagedy, many were asking "What can I do?" The answer was to utilize social media to have people commit to 26 acts of kindness in memory of each life lost.

There are lots of examples that you can find online, but here I'll record my own acts of kindness. Here's to hoping that they inspire acts of kindness within others...

Act 1: I paid for and prepared a washer and dryer in my dormitory laundry room. I really wish that whoever was on the receiving end saw the note, looked more into #26acts, shared the experience with friends, and went on to spread some love him/herself.

(1) pay (2) add detergent (3) add fabric softener and clean filter (4) leave a nice note

Feel free to share your acts of kindness to inspire both ideas and kindness in others.
