-- The Random Acts of Kindness day began in New Zealand in 2005, but has since spread worldwide. It celebrated by individuals, nonprofit groups and businesses. The idea is kindness is contagious, and small acts ripple and create a wave of change. The gesture doesn't have to be big. It can be as simple as buying someone a cup of coffee or giving up a seat on the subway or bus. Source
