Random Acts of Kindness Week Feb 14-20

Posted Sep 14 2008 4:05pm

A couple of years ago, a study conducted at The University of Virginia that found that people, while saying they would rather receive a gift, for a particular reason, from someone they know, actually showed higher levels of pleasure when they were the recipients of a random act of kindness.

In 1994, the United States Congress passed a joint resolution declaring a national “Random Acts of Kindness Week,” which falls this year on February 14th-20th. The http://www.actsofkindness.org/"Random Acts of Kindness Foundation" was founded on the mission of “practicing kindness” and “paying it forward” by doing good deeds for others. Their website is full of things you can do in any setting to help make other people's day a little brighter, and quite possibly, make the world a better place.
