Doog News loves stories of random acts of kindness, like the 40 Acts of Kindness on Her 40th or Coffee for Cancer Patients and this weekend there will be a lot of good deeds happening around North America. Why you ask? Well, this weekend January 17th to 19th, 2014 has been declared the 2nd Annual “Pay It Forward” Weekend! Jackie Wallis of Arkansas decided to encourage others to do random acts of kindness and created a Facebook page inviting everyone to participate. She’s hoping to help spread some heartwarming joy and positivity around the world and maybe even change someone’s life. Jackie says on FB “it doesn’t take people doing a lot, just a lot of people doing a little.”
A year ago for the 1st Annual Weekend there was 3916 people who joined her FB Event page and signed up to participate. As of today over 470,000 people have signed up and are sharing with the group what good deeds they’ve done by posting their acts of kindness online. Here are a couple of examples from this weekend so far and if you join the group, please share yours as well, both on the Facebook page and also with Doog News. You never know, we might just feature your random act of kindness here on Doog News! Happy reading!
We’re off now to do a random act of kindness…..and, we sincerely hope that the joy you feel by doing something kind for someone else will empower you to consider bringing kindness to the world every day, not just this weekend. 🙂
Have a Doog News Day!
