It not only touches someone’s life but defines us as a person. Kindness also makes us happy and happiness makes us kind in turn. Charitable acts are not only about the “haves” helping the “have-nots” – anybody can extend a helping hand to others who need help. And it’s not just about material help. It can be about sparing your time and energy, showing that you care or just simply being considerate. A single act of kindness, big or small, can go a very long way. It reveals and consequently reaffirms our humanity, which is something we tend to neglect.
