National Random Acts of Kindness Day - February 17

I was having a conversation with my good friend and co-author Debbie Roser when she mentioned it would be nice if we could more often think of others than think of ourselves.  This prompted me to say, yeah, like random acts of kindness.  She agreed and since she was at her computer decided to see if there was a national celebration of random acts of kindness.  Well, here's what we discovered on Wikipedia:
Random Acts of Kindness Day is the name of an unofficial holiday increasingly celebrated around the world by localities or organizations, or nationwide, in order to encourage acts of kindness. The original founder of Random Acts of Kindness Day is unknown.[citation needed].
The holiday is celebrated annually in the United States on February 17 and in New Zealand on September 1.[1] In New Zealand, RAK day began at a national level in 2005[2] by Josh de Jong, Marshall Gray, Megan Singleton and Reuben Gwyn. It is not a holiday, rather a national day where the entire country is challenged to do something kind to a friend or stranger for no reason at all.

We really were tickled that here we were talking about this and it is this Friday February 17th - just two days away.  This gives everyone plenty of time to prepare for this awesome opportunity - to do something kind for someone without expecting anything in return.  What a novel concept!  The idea of giving to give - just for the sheer joy of it. 

Join us in celebrating National Random Acts of Kindness day this Friday!!!!
