What’s A Random Act of Kindness?
An act of kindness is just that–something unexpected done by one person that blesses someone else. Sometimes these acts of kindness are done anonymously (or not). And sometimes a person personally knows the person receiving the kindness act (and sometimes not)!
No matter what you decide to do, if you’re helping someone else, you’re performing an act of kindness!
