the kindness project...

Saturday is International Kindness Project Day, a project started by a woman, Dr. Jo, who lost her daughter in 1994. Here is a snipid of information about it.

About the Kindness Project via Kindness Project

"The Kindness Project began in 1996 as a way for families to honor their deceased child and to help themselves heal. Now, years later, almost 2,000,000 (yes, two million!) Kindness Project cards have been used around the world to perform random acts of kindness in memory of a child, parent, friend, or spouse who died before their time.
The idea is to perform random acts of, usually anonymous, acts of kindness in your community. A little card is left behind so that the person who benefits from the kindness knows that someone's life and death continues to matter. This beautiful movement has helped thousands of families to heal and find positive outlets for their overwhelming grief.
My friend, Liz, posted something on Facebook today asking all to do a random act of kindness on Saturday to honor her cousin's baby, Henry, who died suddenly at the beginning of this year. Henry was not even one, he was not sick and one morning he was alive and the next, gone. I hope you will perform a kind act on that day to honor him and all of the other children, parents, friends and spouses who are gone "before their time" but not forgotten!
