Celebs and Citizens Team Up For 26 Acts Of Kindness

As a way to honor the 26 victims killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School and practice the art of "paying it forward," Ann Curry has called on her Twitter followers and the rest of the world to take part in “26 Acts of Kindness.”

The goal is to spread kindness while honoring the shooting victims. Do 26 kind things, each one dedicated to a different victim. Keep the chain going by leaving a note along with your kind act so your recipient can keep the love going.

NBC News correspondent Ann Curry launched the call to action and originally tweeted, “Imagine if all of us committed to 20 mitvahs/acts of kindness to honor each child lost in Newtown. I’m in. If you are.”

She then upped the kindness quota to 26 and since then the movement has caught on like wildfire.

Celebs that have joined in include “The Office” star Kate Flannery, actress Nia Vardalos, and EXTRA host Maria Menounos.

Buzzfeed has also rounded up a great collection of people’s photos and messages of what they did for someone else. Some examples: “Let my 4-year-old pick a car to leave flowers on at Walgreens,” and “A latte for the kind security guard who stands outside our building, rain or shine, making sure we are safe.”
