98 Remarkable Acts of Kindness

Bloggers Unite - Acts of KindnessMoving to a new house, not having an internet connection, or a telephone for that matter for 2 weeks really throws a spanner in the works, and it takes time to settle down.

I had been planning to write about Bloggers Unite about a week ago, with a followup post yesterday, but most of yesterday I was again without a connection. I gave up at 7am.

On Blogcatalog there is now a list forming of all the blogs that took part, and one way for me to give a little something back is to link to all of them.

I haven’t just copied a list of URLs, I have actually visited each site and read every amazing article listed – there is a lot of kindness in the world and many of these stories are quite remarkable and touching.

Many of the posts used a generic Bloggers Unite acts of Kindness title, so where needed I have used a title that is appropriate to the story told, or captured the essence of the story or key phrase.

If you didn’t take part I encourage you to read the stories that catch your eye. Many are really quite moving.

An act of kindness that’s been going on for years

A little personal act of kindness

Whilst I was over in the UK last, and in fact every trip I usually pop in to see old neighbours, many of whom being long-standing friends of my parents are now quite elderly, and help with small chores, even just taking the rubbish out or updating them on life in other parts of the world.
Whilst I was writing this I received an email to inform me that one of those neighbours passed away on Friday. I almost didn’t have time to say hello on my last visit, and am so glad I did.

    Andy,
    Thanks for visiting. I do appreciate the link and sharing all the remarkable stories. You’ve done more than just talk about it:-)

  2. says

    Thank you for compiling this list. I’ve read a number of the posts and there are some remarkable acts of kindness and touching stories. Your list will make it easy to read more.

  3. says

    Andy, a great follow-up concept to Bloggers Unite, i.e., reading and then listing. I am going to attempt and duplicate your effort today and read each one.

    Your final comment on your post is equally compelling. One never knows when you will lose someone, see someone for the last time.

    I have also just blog rolled you.

  4. says

    I am so grateful to you for compiling this list in your blog post. I have only found time to read a few at the Bloggers Unite listing of posts because I decided to keep doing something every day until Christmas. Keeping me busy and joyful both!
    Now I will come back here to read additional stories.

    It’s so cool how this morning on the radio a local station was playing a story that won a large monetary prize in their local random acts of kindness at Christmas drive. I cried tears of happiness at hearing the story told on Lite Rock 105 fm in Rhode Island.

    Thanx for adding me, It means a lot…
    I’m striving to promote the Truth about my country, REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA, so all friends are welcome to help in our struggle for keeping our name…
    Best wishes and happy hollydays

    I really appreciate so many people “Paying It Forward” during the Holiday season. This can be a very hard time for many people. It’s great to see a dedicated movement to provide some cheer to everyone.

  8. says

    aloha Andy! Mahalo for putting the list together and for linking me up. I really appreciate your effort in spreading the word. So many blogers do good things every day. This project is a salute to each of them as well as to the projects they’re supporting. I’m enjoying visiting some of the posts and hope to get to all of them eventually.

    Thank you so much for including my link on your blog for the Random Acts of Kindness day.

    It is so amazing to see so many people write about their own random acts of kindness or tell about others who they say doing random acts of kindness. It really warms my spirit to read everyone’s blogs. I am behind and trying to read them all, doing my best but wanted to be sure to thank you for sharing my blog listing.

  10. says

    Sharing the amazing long list here is one random act of kindness by itself! Maraming salamat (Thank you vey much) and Happy Holidays! :-)

  11. says

    Thank you for compiling this list, and for including my post in it. Today, I’m off to complete my Bloggers Unite mission as a Secret Santa!

    Hey, Andy. Thank you for the linklove. But most of all, thank you for being an advocate of this movement.

    Hope you had a blessed Christmas. And cheers to a happier, kinder 2008!
