One of the nicest things about The Kindness Experiment is that some of each pur4chase of this goes to Heifer Internatonal. If you don’t know about this wonderful charity, look it up, you will be amazed! This book has 365 stories and each of them has it’s own lesson to be learned. The author set out to perform one random act of kindness each day and the book gives us his recollections of his good works.

My favorite (I think, there were many) was Act 49: The Snow Angel. This isn’t really a spoiler because each day has its own tale but the author goes out on a slippery, nasty day to lock a lady’s car as she is afraid she will slip and fall. The quote at the end of this one is by Kin Hubbard and states “Don’t knock the weather. Nine-tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation if it didn’t change once in awhile.” Too true!

This is a feel-good collection of good deeds done, hopefully reciprocated by paying them forward and will surely open your eyes to a splendid concept: Do something nice for someone. You don’t have to know them, you just have to do it!
