November 28, 2016

It doesn’t cost a thing to be kind to others.

Let’s face it; everyone loves a good smile. It feels good to have a toothy grin spead out across your face, and it feels even better if you can make someone else smile from ear to ear.

It’s just incredibly wholesome.

In a world which is, in no uncertain terms, a bit of a dumpster fire at the moment (seriously, turning on the news is a sure-fire way to ruin your day at this point) sometimes we need to be reminded that goodness exists, that people are still kind, and you can actually be kind to others. Crazy, right?

Here are 19 random acts of kindness which are guaranteed to put a smile on your face, and remind you that the world can be a good place. Prepare to smile at the goodness of others…
