Hello, everyone, and thank you SO much for joining me in celebrating my birthday with acts of kindness! I am going to keep updating this list throughout the day. I would LOVE it if we made it to 100! If you are able to go our of your way to do an act of kindness for a stranger, would you please let us know what you did? You can comment here or on our Facebook page, or e-mail me at [email protected] If you want to include your city and/or state, that would be awesome, too! Thank you for celebrating with me – you have no idea how happy this makes me.
