26 Random Acts of Kindness Project to Support the People in Newtown

Have you heard about Ann Curry's 26 Acts of Kindness Campaign to honor the victims of Sandy Hook school? It's gone viral all over the world through Twitter and Facebook with people reporting on the random acts of kindness they've doing or are planning to do. I'm thinking maybe if we, as widows, take part in this campaign it will take the focus off our own loneliness during this difficult time of the year. The idea is for everyone to commit 26 acts of kindness, one in the name of each of the victims.  "If you do good, you'll feel good," is what Ann says. Something to think about..............

On twitter it's #26actsofkindness.
