26 Ideas for #26Acts of Kindness

If we all do one random act of kindness daily, we just might set the world in the right direction.  — Martin Kornfeld

In the wake of the heartbreaking Newtown, CT Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, many of us are wondering how to deal with and process such a tragedy and asking “What I can do to honor those lost?” This past week Ann Curry of NBC News asked this simple question on Twitter, “imagine what would happen if all of us committed to 20 acts of kindness to honor each child lost in Newtown.” She added, “I’m in. If you are, RT #20Acts.” As this quickly spread through social media, #20Acts turned into #26Acts to honor the teachers as well.

Though it shouldn’t take a horrible tragedy for us to be kind to one another, it is still inspiring, motivating, and encouraging to see so many people in our communities come together and care for one another. So to honor those lost we have set out to do #26Acts of kindness and we hope all of you will join us.

To help you get started, we compiled a list of 26 ideas for acts of kindness (in no particular order). Please share your ideas with us as well. Continue reading »

What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

This uplifting and moving video of cancer patients, doctors and nurses from Seattle Children’s Hospital performing a lip sync to Kelly Clarkson’s song “Stronger” was created by Chris Rumble who himself is a cancer patient at the hospital. He said “It was not only good to see the kids happy, but it was also great to see how their parents were so happy as they watched their kids just being kids – dancing, singing and having fun.”

That which does not kill us makes us stronger.— Friedrich Nietzsche

Never, Ever Give Up. Arthur’s Inspirational Transformation!

Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.

But did that stop him from trying? No. Arthur fell many times but never gave up and he proved the doctors wrong. He shows us all, that through hard work and determination, we can accomplish anything we put our minds to.
