Random acts of kindness on Twitter

Most of you will already be familiar with the random acts of kindness principle – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random_acts_of_kindness, a meme which has been in existence since the 1980’s (I remember my mum telling me about it in the car on the way to school one morning).

There’s something beautiful about the simplicity of this meme.

I was thinking after an old woman let me in front of her in the supermarket queue, and I gave a chocolate trifle to a veteran selling poppies (I had a poppy already). Both experiences brought such joy. Such simple compassion. I wanted to share them.

This is where twitter enters.

I have set up actsofkindness as a twitter group, you can follow  it, and by direct messaging you can share any kindness you experience.

I hope it brings you a small dose of joy and beauty, to balance your day. Also hopefully by virtue of it’s existence and use perhaps we will commit more acts.
