Kindness Running AMOK!

One of the coolest events Random Acts does each year is the Annual Melee of Kindness (AMOK). I’ve done it twice myself, and this year was even cooler than the last!

So I bet you’re wondering what a photo of Times Square is doing on my blog. No, sadly, I wasn’t in NYC to take that photo. But a number of Random Acts staffers and supporters–including musician Justin Guarini!–made a big splash in the Big Apple, gathering food and supplies for needy animals, and having a great time.

The fun continued a few months later during the Endure4Kindness event (E4K). This time, the Random Acts team offered video tours of the city via Periscope, in exchange for donations! Here’s mine (warning: it’s long…also, peacocks).

The great thing about Random Acts is that crazy and fun events like this happen all over the world–not just in major cities like NYC. You can get a glimpse of some of the random goings-on over at their Kindness Files!

And if you’d like to contribute to fund more random acts of kindness, you can do so on my CrowdRise fundraiser page! I’d be happy to consider it an early birthday gift. (How thoughtful of you!)

‘Til tomorrow!

I have been fascinated by the unusual all my life. One of my very first written works was a school assignment exploring the validity of ESP and paranormal phenomena. Though I was very young at the time, I immediately found myself fascinated by performers like Yuri Gellar and David Copperfield, and these days I'm absolutely blown away by people like Derren Brown. Even today, I want to believe that abilities exist which have no valid scientific explanation. I have been reading Stephen King novels for as long as I can remember, and I'm a sucker for tv shows like "The X Files" and "LOST". One of these days, I'll tell all the stories that have been floating around in my head while I've been busy trying to live life.
