26 Acts of Kindness movement: Are you in?

HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It's customary to see people donating their time or money around the holiday season, but what if we all committed to 26 acts of kindness, despite the time of year? Some may argue, we could change the nation.

A massive, unexpected wave of goodwill began online with a simple idea: "Imagine if we all committed 20 acts of kindness to honor the lost children of Newtown." NBC News National and International Correspondent Ann Curry sent the message on Twitter and Facebook.

The idea has evolved into a viral effort known as "26 Acts of Kindness," in honor of the students and faculty who died at Sandy Hook Elementary. The acts of kindness continue to spread overseas and are being categorized on social media under the hashtags #26Acts and #26ActsOfKindness.

Have you witnessed, or maybe been the recipient of, a random act of kindness? Head to the WLBT Facebook page and share your story.
