Random Acts of Kindness: How to Make It a Better World (Hardcover)
Random Acts of Kindness ─ Inspirational Stories
Make a commitment to spread kindness wherever you go. Being kind doesn't cost anything, but it can mean the world to those around you.
What if all of a sudden everyone started performing daily good deeds? This inspiring collection presents true stories of people who've committed, received, and observed voluntary acts of kindness. Hearing their stories reveals how these simple, small acts of goodness can have a profoundly positive effect in the world. The true stories, thoughtful quotations, and suggestions for generosity in this book will inspire you to live more compassionately and be a kinder person.
Join the kindness movement. In 1995, a small group of people at Conari Press, including M.J. Ryan, Will Glennon, and Dawna Markova, came together around the idea that small gestures and simple acts can make a difference in people's lives. Thus, Random Acts of Kindness was born, but they had no idea how big this little idea would become. Soon, instead of the usual two or three letters from readers, they were getting bags of mail from readers submitting their own acts of kindness and stories of compassion. Now, twenty-five years later, over one million copies have been sold and it is a worldwide movement, with National Random Acts of Kindness Week, celebrated each February.
An inspirational gift of kind words. Sometimes the smallest gesture makes the biggest difference. This little book shows how to start--with the small, with the particular, with the individual--in order to make a difference in the world. It features:
- True stories about acts of kindness and generosity of spirit
- Suggestions for living more compassionately
- Inspirational quotes to get you started
Readers of motivational books and stories like Chicken Soup for the Soul: Random Acts of Kindness, A Pebble for Your Thoughts, I've Been Thinking..., or You Can Do All Things will love the encouraging, inspirational stories in Random Acts of Kindness.
