Share This Journal: A public journal documenting random acts of kindness
We all know that it is good to be kind. While we do acts of kindness just for the sake of making someone’s day, wouldn’t it be cool to know the ripple effect you had? This first of it’s kind journal encourages paying it forward and documenting the chain of kindness. You record your name and contact information (however much you are comfortable sharing,) perform an act of kindness, document it in the journal and give the journal to the recipient of your kind act. That person is then prompted to record his or her reaction, perform another act of kindness for someone else, record it and pass it on. Once the chain of 12 acts of kindness is completed, the final person is instructed to contact you and return to you your completed journal. You can buy someone a cup of coffee, bring flowers to the clerk at the post office or even leave the book behind on a bus or in a cab with a gift card or even a few dollars. Imagine getting your completed journal back and seeing the chain of positive and kind acts because of something you did. I teamed up with a former stranger, now dear friend and part of my life forever, Amy Gopel to create this. Her brainchild.
