Random Acts of Kindness.

Random Acts of Kindness

Lately, I’ve been noticing a lot of videos going on around the internet of people helping others. But what if I told you there is a way we could help hundreds of people by just doing one random act of kindness? What would be really cool is if you would print it out and when you’re done, you just pass it on to the people that you do the good deeds for or if that's not possible, just name a few things to them so they can carry on the chain. Anyways. Enjoy it!
