WHAT IS A RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS?

The term random act of kindness is generally attributed to Anne Herbert who wrote, “Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty” on a restaurant place mat. The term refers to selfless acts, both large and small, that are committed unexpectedly, without prompting and with no apparent ulterior motive. Examples might include paying for a coffee for the person in line behind you at the coffee shop, helping a person cross the street, or offering to help soothe a crying baby while the parents finish shopping. People generally use the term to refer to acts performed for strangers, but random acts of kindness can also be done for friends and family.

From now until June 6th we’d like you to nominate someone in our community for a random act of kindness. We will watch the “Likes” for each posting that is made and those with the most “Likes” will be eligible for a gift. Between now and then we will be posting suggestions for how you can perform a random act of kindness. Keep watching our Facebook page for more details.
