I was introduced to the idea of random acts of kindness in the mid 90's by a woman named Martha Borst who at the time had a program called Phoenix 2000 that several of my friends and myself participated in. She has a book on the market now titled "Your survival strategies are killing you". A very smart woman who is a life advisor. She sent us out into the city streets to do random acts of kindness. It was an amazing experiment in humanity and I've been hooked ever since. One of my favorite quotes from Leo Buscaglia states
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." His ripple theory states that a small kindness is like a pebble dropped in water. It spreads out and the ripple gets bigger as it does. You never know how far a simple kindness ripple might travel through the sea of humanity. Drop stones often and you just might create a wave with your ripples.
