#26acts of Kindness, I'm in @AnnCurry :: Are you? Plus a ton of ideas, videos & printables to aid you!

Maybe you've heard about Ann Curry's tweet? It jump-started a worldwide act of kindness movement honoring the loves lost in Newtown last week.


#20acts turned into #26acts.

I plan to carry out #28acts to include Adam & his mother.

The concept: You carry out #26acts of kindness to honor both the children & adults lost in Newtown last week.

I am full to the brim with love & light over this movement. As most of you know, this notion is the seed in which Kind Over Matter was born. Over the last 4 years we've inspired countless acts of kindness... big & small. This is such a beautiful way to honor the folks lost & hurting over this tragedy - which is all of us, yes? This is the way we heal, by loving. By giving. By being kind to one another. This is the way we shift our collective consciousness. Not just in the wake of a tragedy but EVERY DAY. Imagine if we all committed ourselves to do at least one kindness every day, big or small, for the rest of our lives?


I'm in, are you with me? Let's drop some Kind Bombs, loves.

I plan to carryout my #28acts over the next couple weeks while I am taking a mini-break from posting here at KOM to spend time with my loved ones for the holidays. I'm going to record them all & share them in a video here. I'll probably be sharing photos via Instagram throughout until then.

I made these two PDFs for Wild Sister Magazine this past summer... I am sharing them with you today. Both of them are free downloadable PDFs that you can print out to aid you with your acts.

One is a list of 32 ideas for acts of kindness to inspire you, the other is a sheet of cards that you can cut out & leave in public places with your gifts or notes. You could modify them by writing #26acts on the back.

Click on the images or links below them to download. You will be taken to a page where the PDFs automatically download or you can click the download button there.

I made mine really simple and printed 28 love letters to the world to drop tomorrow during my last-day-of-kids-in-school-hopefully-if-it-doesn't-snow errands :) I love that printable, and love the idea, and THANK you doll!

HI Amanda,
I love your blog, found it via Loran about a week ago. It's very inspiring and encouraging and so in alignment with living in the Wow Moment. Happy Holidays. thewowmoment.com

Hey there, I can't print the checklist or the Random Acts tags because the link is invalid. Any way you could email them to me for a church youth group activity tonight? THANK YOU!! nycolethomas@gmail.com
