Something easy we all can do is give a gift to everyone you meet. I’m not talking about a formal, wrapped-up present. Your gift can be your smile, a word of thanks or encouragement, a gesture of politeness, even a friendly nod. And never pass beggars without leaving them something. Peace of mind is worth the spare change.
Happy Holidays to one and all and many blessings in the New Year!

I am truly humbled. My simple “Be Kind 365” blog has inspired someone else to begin the selfless journey of spreading kindness throughout our world. Please take time to check out her “Unending Love, Amazing Grace” blog here. This woman is going to change lives and make the world a brighter place.
Her name is Jessie Kaitlyn, her and I need your help. Please join us in turning the world’s frowns upside down and making a difference in someone’s life. We can’t do it alone. This is living proof that one act of kindness can multiply and have far-reaching effects. Leave a comment about a simple act of kindness you have done or one that has been given to you, I would love to hear about it.
Be Kind 365, it only takes one step!

Sunnyvale, CA -based Yahoo! has launched a new site to rally its audience of some 600 million people into random acts of kindness. Timed to coincide with December holidays, the site encourages users to post activities, such as volunteering at a homeless shelter or helping an elderly neighbor. Once an activity is posted, the user asks, “You in?” to inspire others to do likewise.
“We believe that one small act of kindness can ignite a ripple of generosity and we hope to inspire the Yahoo! community to create a wave of goodwill around the world,” said Meg Garlinghouse, senior director of Yahoo! for Good. “Update your status to share what you’re doing to spread holiday joy and inspire others to also pay it forward.”
Just launched, the site already has a fair amount of content with people posting text and images. You can find the site at kindness.yahoo.com pictues can be uploaded to Yahoo! owned Flickr, or users may visit Yodel Anecdotal.
