Former Today Show host Ann Curry has sparked a movement through Twitter called #26acts, in part to bring about something positive from tragedy.
In honor of the 20 children and 6 adults brutally murdered on Friday, Dec. 14, in Newtown, Conn., she is asking that people commit 26 acts of kindness.
People have responded in heartwarming, inspiring ways. After a random act of kindness, they are tweeting back to Ann what they have done.
Here are a few posted so far, with more coming in every few minutes:
"Sent Christmas card to a sailor at boot camp who won't be home for the holiday. In honor of 6yo #AllisonWyatt"
"Donated to my local food bank. This donation helps feed 30 people, many of them kids."
"I bought Starbucks for the man behind me in line. I'm a teacher. He told me to stay strong as I cried."
"Saw a homeless couple sleeping in the parking lot...left them breakfast and a $20 gift card."
