50 Random Acts Of Kindness

I am a huge fan of random acts of kindness. The feeling you get from doing something special for someone else is incredible, especially when they aren’t expecting it. I love being able to be a blessing to another person, no matter how big or small the gesture is. The world can be a very destructive, crazy place, and just a small act of kindness from a fellow human can dramatically improve someone’s life. I decided to compile a list of 5o different random acts of kindness in the hopes that we can all be a little more kind and loving towards each other every day.
