7 Random Acts Of Kindness That Will Inspire Your Own

#6 left us speechless too.

Today, February 17, is Random Acts of Kindness Day: a day when each and every one of us is encouraged to pay forward some of our good fortune with a gesture of random kindness, no matter how small.

Although "big" acts of kindness tend to make headlines, especially when they're done by celebrities or CEOs, that doesn't mean that the less-visible ones are any less important or meaningful. We'd argue that the ones that go unseen are often the most important: that charitable acts committed in the name of goodness itself without any hope of personal recognition have a quality akin to grace

We've culled 7 of these latter examples from Imgur and present them without further comment and ask that you accept them in the context of kindness. We hope that you'll find among them something that inspires you to go quietly into the world today and do something without the hope of any reward save the knowledge and hope that the kindness you put forth will be paid forward and that the ripples of each of these acts will, in turn, create ripples of their own.

Enjoy.
