Random Acts of Kindness

Small gestures make the most difference on a daily basis. It's easy to get so preoccupied with our own lives that we forget about others, but with just one simple act of kindness, we can change the way someone else's day goes, and we can better ourselves and the world in the process.

This challenge is designed for you to take the time to do something for someone else — and hopefully they will pay it forward to the next person!
