Random Acts of Kindess Blogger:Being Sane Takes Too Much Work

A random act of kindness is a selfless act performed by a person or people wishing either to assist or to cheer up on individual person or people.  They may be planned or spontaneous and are encouraged by various communities.  Just like volunteering, random of kindness affects a person positively and makes he/she feel good.  It helps the giver to realize he/she can make a difference in the world.  Anne Herbert takes credit for coining the phrase after she wrote "Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty" on a placemat at a Sausalito restaurant in 1982 or 1983.  The most remembered is College Professor Chuck Wall's Random Acts of Kindness Project.  In the spring of 1993, Professor Wall was teaching a human relations class at Bakersfield College.  He was listening to the radio when he heard "We have another random act of senseless violence to report".  He wanted to turn a negative into a positive.  He replaced the word "violence" with kindness.  Random Acts of Kindness became a project for his students that semester.       Info:   Healthy Place      Wikipedia
