No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.—Amelia Earhart
Kim, one of our readers, sent over the trailer for the documentary Good Virus, Kindness is Contagious that we thought was fitting for Random Acts of Kindness Week. Watch the trailer after the jump.
The documentary Good Virus, Kindness is Contagious profiles scientists, authors and ordinary people whose lives illustrate their incredible discovery: kindness is contagious. “Kindness spreads just like the flu virus. If one person starts being kind, being generous to other people in that group, that behavior can spread from person to person to person and soon the whole group is more likely to exhibit that same behavior.”
The purpose of Good Virus is:
- to illustrate that—contrary to what you may see, hear and read in the news—kindness is all around us (THE GOOD) and
- to inspire people to spread that kindness (THE VIRUS).
Good Virus is all about the small things, tiny acts of kindness that don’t cost a lot of money or oblige praise.
Check out Good Virus and learn how a little generosity can help you live a happier, healthier, wealthier, longer and more fulfilling life.
What is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you? Did you “pass it on“?
Thank you Kim for sending us the Good Virus trailer!
