Build a Better World with Random Acts of Kindness and Good Deeds

Winner of the Living Now Book Award, Gold – Evergreen, World Peace

#1 Bestseller: Previous editions of Random Acts of Kindness have sold over one million copies

Celebrate National Random Acts of Kindness Week in February. Perform good deeds of compassion and consideration toward others.

The Random Acts of Kindness movement is born. In 1995, a small group of people at Conari Press came together around the idea that small gestures and simple acts can make a difference in people's lives. Thus, Random Acts of Kindness was born. But they had no idea how big this little idea would become.

Make a difference in the world. This good-humored guide to being the change you want to see in the world is filled with suggestions for making a real difference, in ways both large and small. From improving someone’s life with just one penny to ensuring all children are well fed, the day-by-day positive proposals of Random Acts of Kindness combine inspiration with action. Despite the hurly-burly of our busy lives, we can all make a beneficial impact on the environment, throughout out local community, and within our own hearts. This book of inspired ideas and good deeds conveys how “the power of one”―that is, you―can make a better world, starting today!

Sometimes the smallest gesture makes the biggest difference. This little book shows how to start―with the small, with the particular, with the individual―in order to make a difference in the world.

Random Acts of Kindness features:

  • True stories about acts of kindness and generosity of spirit
  • Suggestions for living more compassionately
  • Inspirational quotes to get you started

Fans of books such as Chicken Soup for the SoulA Pebble for Your ThoughtsI've Been Thinking…, or You Can Do All Things will love the encouraging, inspirational stories in this new Random Acts of Kindness edition.

Kids' Random Acts of Kindness

By

Random Acts of Kindness Series

Want to Feel Hopeful About the Future?

Share in inspirational stories of generosity written by children of all ages that reveal their surprisingly insightful feelings about kindness and compassion.

Look back at why the Random Acts of Kindness series was such a sensation. When the adult version of Random Acts of Kindness was first published, hundreds of teachers across the country gave assignments to their students to write about unsolicited acts that they had experienced or initiated. Teachers sent the results to Conari Press which then put out a call for similar stories in a teacher’s magazine. Stories poured in and the result was Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness. Whimsical and funny to moving and thoughtful, Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness helps restore your belief in the potential for goodness in man.

In Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness, you will see how children are the truest examples of open-hearted giving:

  • Kids are hopeful. They believe they can change, easily and often. They look forward not back. They like to think about what could be, not what was.
  • Kids are possibility addicts. They’re always working on something. If you listen you’ll hear a language of hopefulness and striving, an elasticity that keeps them going and trying.
  • Kids love to master challenges. They want to try new things, move in new directions, be productive. They are risk takers, sometimes out of faith, sometimes out of desperation. More than anything else, children want and need to belong, to partner, to collaborate.

Readers of other books in the Random Acts of Kindness series and motivational books and stories like Chicken Soup for the Soul: Random Acts of KindnessA Pebble for Your ThoughtsI've Been Thinking…, and You Can Do All Things will love the encouraging, inspirational stories in Kid's Random Acts of Kindness.
