Practise random acts of kindness

Practise random kindness and senseless acts of beauty. (Anne Herbert)

An electronic billboard called Tentacle, on the corner of Cuba and Manners Streets, often grabs my attention – if only briefly. Tonight I saw something a bit different. Tentacle included an advertisement that said: ‘Practise random acts of kindness.’ Which sounded vaguely familiar, and which resonated strongly with me … so I went hunting.

Global Ideas Bank has a really nice piece, with some good stories – including one about Anne Herbert.

You might find WikiHow a worthwhile read.

I also found a website and a Facebook page for an organisation calling itself The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation.
