April’s daily act of kindness challenge is over, but the positive impact is not. Many people joined the acts of kindness challenge and shared their amazing good deeds on social media. I loved reading the beauty of kindness and how many lives were impacted by simply being kind. A huge thank you to everyone who participated. You are all so amazing!
I think kindness is contagious and can really make someone’s day. It doesn’t take much effort or money to be kind, but the effects can be life changing. Plus, throughout this month it was evident that karma was in full effect. Several wonderful things happened to many of the people participating in the challenge. Personally, I saw many great things happen in my own life that really proved to me that kindness all day every day is truly the way to live.

Doing this challenge I also realized that I was already doing acts of kindness most days! Sharing on social media and blogging about the acts of kindness made me more aware of the good deeds I could be doing and allowing me to share the love even more. This challenge was amazing and I plan to live my life doing daily acts of kindness. It is so rewarding and wonderful! I highly recommend everyone make daily acts of kindness part of their routine. It just makes the world a better place and brightens everyone’s day.
