Kindness abounded in many places in 2016. But good deeds were especially abundant in one Rockefeller Center storefront in New York City, where everyday folks churned out kind acts throughout the holiday season.
The #ShareKindness Experience, a real-life kindness factory, enabled visitors to take part in making the world a better place through generous actions such as writing letters to veterans or decorating lunch bags for kids in need. Thousands of guests visited the Experience, a partnership between TODAY and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation. By the end of December, the Experience helped the #ShareKindness campaign reach 1 million acts of kindness. From contributing comments to #ShareKindness stories on TODAY’s Facebook to tweeting with the #ShareKindness hashtag, YOU helped end 2016 on a happy and helpful note. One million kind acts is nothing to sneeze at. How much we can get done in 2017 is up to you.
And just how is it possible to count kindnesses? Head over to the Today Show to see the numbers.
