#26actsofkindness via @AnnCurry To Honor Sandy Hook Shooting Victims

By
Real Estate Agent with CO-RE Group, LLC -Real estate sales and services ER100036445

The Sandy Hook school is omnipresent in our minds. It makes us cry and leaves us in disbelief of what  happened just this past week.

Many of us feel helpless but really want to do something. Something to ease the pain, something to help!

NBC's Ann Curry surely felt this way when she asked out loud on Twitter and Facebook:

"Imagine if we all committed to 20 acts of kindness for each child lost in Newtown? I'm in. RT #20Acts if YOU R in. #MTP #Supersoulsunday."

She suggests to start in your own town, house and heart. Since then the hashtag #20acts has generated a firestorm of goodness. People from all over the world are tweeting and 'facebooking' about the things they have done to make a little difference in the world. Publizicing the good deeds on these social platforms really have nothing to do with gloating, but to inspire others to join in the movement.

Since Ann Curry's tweet on Sunday the hashtag has changed to #26acts #28acts or #26actsofkindness. What you label it really doesn't matter, as long as you DO!

So here is my request: Will our very large, generous,compassionate ActiveRain community join in to pay it forward? Your gifts can be gifts of money, time, service!

Inspire everyone with your good deeds! Leave your #26acts comments below!

Great minds must think alike!  I didn't even know about this and I committed to 26 acts of kindness on Sunday and posted it on Facebook for people join in with me.  I want to shower the world with love in hopes of healing our world.

Hi Susanna,  Watching the coverage and am dismayed at how some politicians refuse to give a straight answer to questions on how we should move forward.  I love your program and will commit to it  ( and more ) !

Suzanna - this is a wonderful idea on how to give.  There is a way for all of us to do something for those in our communities and across the globe.  Thanks so much for sharing this - awesome idea.

This is an extension to Paula Hamilton's earier post about random acts of kindness. Now my motivation is doubled. I won't broadcast my actual good deeds though. For me it just takes away from the gratification of doing something really good for someone else. Thank you for sharing this.

Thanks for asking AR members to join this most worthy cause!  I'd love to see others' ideas on ways to reach out in their communities. My idea is making a donation to our local food bank; this time of year (and all year round) there are too many hungry children.

Thanks for sharing and suggesting to AR members.  I will gladly join and participate.  Love always prevails, so if each of us reaches out with an act of kindness, it will multiply over and over

Suzanna, earlier in the month Paula posted about doing an act of Kindness every day in December. We even started a group. Hopefully even more Rainers will get involved!

Susanna, the people around here are setting up all manner of vigils and services for those people. It is a time of grief and will be through the rest of the week.

It is interesting and comforting to read the tweeted donations. What a great concept.

This is just one example of how good triumphs over evil. I think it will be interesting to see some of these stories.

this is a really cool idea.  The other day on Google Plus, I saw a whole post on 26 acts of kindness...I wanted to cry because it was such a stark contrast to what happened.  Love this idea.
