Kindness In The News

Random Acts of Kindness, Giving, Reaching out to othersI often search through news to see what kindness related stories have happened. Kindness happens all around us on a daily basis, but unfortunately it seems the not so good news is often what is glorified and seen most in the news. Therefore, I decided I would start including on my site Kindness in the News! It always inspires me to see goodness sprouting all around the place, so I hope you find it as inspiring as well.

The links attached to the story summaries are to the original news source for the stories. They may thus disappear unexpectedly, so if you encounter any dead links please let me know so I can have them removed...and as always....if there is any noteworthy story which you discover and think should be included here please do let me know!
