It all started in Sausalito, California, in 1982, when Anne Herbert scrawled "practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty" on a place mat in a restaurant. From there it spread to bumper stickers, quietly at first, but with the powerful momentum of something important calling us to lives of caring and compassion. The bestselling book, Random Acts of Kindness, which includes touching stories, quotations, and thoughtful suggestions, creates a feeling of possibility that can propel us into lives of compassion.

From the book:
"Imagine what would happen if there was an outbreak of kindness in the world, if everybody did one kind thing on a daily basis. Random Acts of Kindness will inspire you to start -- with the small, the particular, the individual -- to bring delight and goodness to yourself and others."

The Editors of Conari Press have produced the bestselling Random Acts of Kindness series, with over 1 million copies sold.
