When I saw this story about the Selkirk woman who turned the front of her house into a community food pantry for those in need, the first thing I thought was, "Wow, now that's a kind thing to do." Kindness is defined as "the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate" and this checked all of the boxes.
Thursday morning while barricaded in the bedroom, I was broadcasting from home on the GNA morning show. It was approaching 9am and as Chrissy and I started flying through the rest of the show, I heard the rest of the house starting to stir. M...
I had a chance to sit down with my son and his classmates last week at school to get their thoughts on kindness and friendship. Many people loved this segment. It showed the true purity and innocence of 4 and 5-year-old's and perhaps there was something for us adults to learn here. Plus, it was funny as heck! In addition to coming away incredibly impressed with how sweet, smart, silly and comp
When you walk into most school bathrooms you find the usual necessities, a stall, sink, mirror, paper towels. One local school district has added a little something special to its middle school bathrooms, inspirational quotes.

A homeless mother in Kansas was caught stealing $300 worth of stuff from Walmart last Monday. When the police were called it was officer Mark Engravalle who responded. He of course did his job and issued the woman a citation but it wasn't as simple as that for Mark.

Every once in a while I try to find someone to just show kindness to in some way, maybe it's a date night or a backstage pass, maybe it's a new appliance or an overgrown lawn...

Their goal is simple. Commit random acts of kindness and encourage others to pay it forward. And it all started during an after-school discussion between the two friends at the Colonie Central High School library...
I can't even explain how incredible I think this video is, clearly the message of kindness and giving is one that should always be valued and spread as often as possible.
