White Dog and The White Dog Army
Wonderful World Wednesday

White Dog and her siblings love the concept of Random Acts of Kindness. One of their favorite acts is to share baggies of kibble and a sandwich with the loyal GSD companion and the homeless man they often encounter during their bedtime walks. The WDA believes that every kindness, no matter how small, works toward creating a more wonderful world for everyone.

Recently, we happily discovered that there is an entire foundation dedicated to inspiring people (and we bet, four-leggeds, too) to practice kindness and pass it on to others: The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, www.randomactsofkindness.org. They operate on the premise that kindness is everywhere, and they present links to kindness initiatives that help you explore kindness, whether you seek other communities to join or want to find ideas and inspiration. They also sponsor a Kindness Challenge.

This year there were three winners of the Challenge, including this generous widowed carpenter who brings joy to children:

The White Dog Army finds hope and do-ability in the Random Acts message. It is something that every creature can accomplish. Spread the word…and an act of kindness!

“Let’s start smaller. How many kind thoughts of others can you have in a day? How many people can you encourage? How many people can you help in small way? Now we’re onto something…
“Imagine… if we simply hoped for the best toward every person we come in contact with during the day. If each one of us, day by day, shared acts of kindness with those we know and those we don’t know…how would the world change? How would YOU change? How far would our kindness spread?
“Start with your own world and your own circle of influence. Your friends, family, and community. Start now. Continuously let kindness be the cause you support and watch it grow into a better future!”

We love this idea of showing random acts of kindness to others. Thank you so much for letting us know and for all that you do.:)

Love,

Sounds like a great website. You have probably already heard of this one but kind of reminds me of the same, it is wishuponahero.com :)

We've heard of the Random Acts of Kindness too. It's a wonderful idea and everyone should give it a go! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

I think one of the most amazing things Random Acts of Kindness give is a longer life. I hope Mr. Carpenter enjoys the rest of his life.

I think helping someone in need, no matter how small the task is a great way to start doing it.

Huggies and Cheese,

Hopefully one day soon kindness will not be an act!
