The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation – Inspiring people to practice kindness and pass it on to others

“The Kindness Project began in 1996 as a way for families to honor their deceased child and to help themselves heal. The idea is to perform random acts of, usually anonymous, acts of kindness in your community. A little card is left behind so that the person who benefits from the kindness knows that someone’s life and death continues to matter. This beautiful movement has helped thousands of families to heal and find positive outlets for their overwhelming grief.” —MISS Foundation’s Kindness Project

 Moms 6 Days – “Jennifer’s mother Roberta suffered a brain hemorrhage on September 19th, 2009, and passed away 5 days later on September 24. Faced with unthinkable grief, Jennifer found a way to honor her mother, who was an advocate for random acts of kindness. Each month, from the 19th through the 24th, Jennifer performs random acts of kindness in her mother’s honor.”

“We encourage grieving families to give back to the community “Keeping Love & Kindness Alive” by promoting and doing random acts of kindness in loving memory of the loved ones who have died. It has been our experience that this is just one method of overcoming our own grief by helping others while also giving back to the community.” — Wise Widowed Parents

  1. This is a perfect way to get out of self. I am a consummate door-holder-opener.Some people act like they expect it and some people say “thanks”, What touches me most is the people that rush forward to open the next door to hold it open for others. Kind acts are contagious.
