This holiday was started in 2005 to share random acts of kindness toward others. I remember getting a free Starbucks gift card handed to me in 2005 with a note telling me to pass along the act of kindness to someone else. I don't think I'll ever forget the gesture from a random stranger. It's not hard to leave someone a nice note or buy coffee for the person behind you in the Starbucks line. Make the extra effort today - trust me, it will be appreciated more than you know!
Here are a couple sites (and news articles) that give more information about this day:

How cool is this?
This is great too!
