Here are some of our favorite moments of kindness we saw during 2015. Here's to seeing more things like this for the new year! (these are shown in no particular order)
Can we please have more role models like you Taylor Swift?!

You guys showed the world what kindness is all about. #PorteOuverte indeed. Read more & see the actual tweets at pbs.org.
A simple request by a young burn victim was seen by the world. It took two huge mail trucks to bring her the mail and cards and toys and other fun things are still arriving! So. very. amazing. You can read the full story (and get an address to send a card yourself) at huffingtonpost.com.
A young, single dad takes a chance and moves away from a bad situation. He had a job and a place to stay lined up before he left, but after those things fell through he was compltetely out of luck. A chance street interview by Leon Logothetis helped change things in a big way. Read the full story and see the interview at thedenverchannel.com.
A cool post on facebook by Destiny Carreno recalled a random act of kindness she witnessed by a cashier at McDonalds (Kenny) stop what he was doing to help a customer cut and eat his food. Very amazing story... the coolest part? Kenny did it without hesitating or wanting any credit.
We've seen a few of these posts this year and we love each of them. They are a super simple idea to do an inexpensive random act of kindness. How fun would it be to get one of these DVDs yourself? Next best thing? Give one to someone else. Hint: even if you don't use Redbox, you can still do this by just renting a movie, stuff a fun note in the DVD and immediately return it.
Again, not sure of the story behind this image, but I'm sure the little boy and his dad are incredibly happy now. Fostering and adoption is kindness on a whole different level.
So a cute little kid invited his class to a birthday party and for whatever reason, no one showed up. His mom, heartbroken for him, posted the situation to facebook and the community came togehter quickly to throw him a birthday party he'll never forget. Take a minute and read this story to see how awesome and kind people can be.
A group of school kids in Connecticut took time to make care packages for the military and packages with gloves and mittens to families in need. Nice job guys! I'm sure they will really appreciate your work. Check out the facebook post for other photos.
So there are some of our favorites we saw this year. If you noticed something that we missed, let us know in the comments and we'll add it to our list so others can be inspired. Here's to a kind 2016!

I just reposted #7 on my FB page - and, am doing this when I go to the grocery store this afternoon! I don't use Redbox - but, I can imagine that someone might appreciate the gesture - and, perhaps continue it!!!!'
