Acts of Kindness

About Acts of Kindness

At Sparkt, we want you to do more than just enjoy our stories about people making a difference. We want you to make a difference, too! And there's no easier way to make someone smile than a simple Act of Kindness.

Our Act of Kindness section gives you inspiration and ideas. Like the stranger who paid for a fire department's groceries when they had to rush from the store to a call. Or the teen who gave a bullied classmate some of his own clothing so the boy could fit in. The best thing about so many of these stories is that they demonstrate that being kind doesn't have to cost a cent. Like the FedEx driver who was caught on a doorbell camera shoveling snow from a customer's porch before delivering a package, or the students who showed up at a sick teacher's house to cheer her by singing holiday carols, or the school janitor who used a personal touch to comfort a student with autism who was in distress.

We hope by reading our stories about people who make the effort to pay attention to others and take the time to do something to make someone's day, you'll make a habit out of doing little acts of kindness yourself. Even your small act will make a big difference in the lives of other people -- and in yours.
