She paid for a woman’s gift card at a shoe store, then bought coffee for a stranger at Starbucks. At Publix, she paid for the cake of woman in line behind her.
And Atlanta teacher Natasha Woody is just getting started.
She plans to perform 26 acts of kindness this holiday season. She’s up to six.
It’s a new movement to honor the 26 people killed in the Newtown school massacre sparked by newswoman Ann Curry who asked people to do 26 acts of kindness for others as a way to “help heal us all.”
And the kindness bug is definitely contagious this holiday season. Woody’s students, despite being on free and reduced lunch, happily performed random acts. “One student brought in 72 canned goods to give to others. I know it’s food his family could use at home,” she said.
Throughout metro Atlanta people have been giving back and paying it forward.
“I have never seen such a positive, contagious trend!!!” wrote Stacy Efrat. “As soon as I heard about it, I was in.” She began her kindness quest by paying the toll on Ga. 400 for cars behind her, after someone paid for her.
