Ann Curry sparks 26 Acts of Kindness Movement
Ann Curry, NBC News correspondent asked herself, after the tragic massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, what
she could do. And she thought performing 26 acts of kindness, one act for each child and teacher who lost their life that day, would be a small gesture to honor the victims.
Ann then invited everyone to join her by sharing the idea on social media. Within a few days the hashtag “#26acts” was trending on Twitter and a “26 Acts of Kindness” Facebook page began to grow. People began to tweet Curry with photos and descriptions of their acts of kindness such as paying for parking meters, tolls and leaving larger than usual tips.
Curry wrote on the NBC News website that the movement is a way to “help heal us all.”
