    What a perfect book to read right now during these stressful and uncertain times where the smallest act of kindness goes a long way Brad Aronson wrote this amazing book that truly inspired me in the most wonderful way through these heartwarming stories of people's acts of kindness and how it affects people in the most positive and meaningful ways This all started when Brad Aronson's life took a sudden turn when his wife Mia was diagnosed with leukemia For the next few years as Mia receives treatment and Brad trying to cope with their five year old son Jack their family received an outpouring of support and generosity from friends family and strangers These simple acts of kindness brought Brad and his family through their dark times This generous spirit brought him inspiration to write about these small acts of human kindness which he shares in this book Within these chapters are a call to action on how we can make an impact in someone's life no matter how small we may think that may be Ideas on how can we make a difference in someone's life is sprinkled throughout the book and what I enjoyed the most were the sections at the end of the chapters on how to spend fifteen minutes to think differently to thank someone or to celebrate with another person I loved that the book empowers the readers on how to be awesome through thoughtfulness generosity and kindness Brad Aronson offers up easy to accomplish actionable ideas to start making a difference right now I highly recommend this book for an inspirational read on how we can make this world a better place

    In the current present that we are living in this book is a needed welcome Even so during these scary times As I was reading these stories I was both happy and emotional Some tears may have been left behind but they were happy tears of joy This book features all kinds of stories There is the one of people banding together to help purchase a service dog or the story of one man who came from nothing to become something He never forgot where he came from and became secret santa Before he died he shared his story in the hopes that others would continue his legacy of secret santa Today there are thousands of secret santas all over the world There is the story of a little boy who reuired a brain surgery thus leaving the little boy to miss out on Halloween HIs parents sent invites to family friends and neighbors to participate in an early Halloween Every house on the block was lit up that night It is stories like the above and that will have readers believing in the good nature of human kind For every bad story in the news there are good ones as well It can be easy to forget the good ones are the bad ones may get the spotlight Yet with the pandemic we are currently facing we are reading tons of stories of kindness One small act can make the difference

    Very inspiring and also guilt inducing What have I been doing with my life?? This was a book club book Since we were all going through major anxiety and other issues during this time we felt like we should focus on something uplifting It generated a really nice discussionAronson shares his own personal stories as well as others' and gives the background for the small beginnings of some big ideas and great charitable organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters He also shares ways in which we can all make a difference even just by doing one small thing each day There's a list at the end of all the organizations you can donate your time and money to but also other ideas for how you can do your part every day to help someone or just let them know you care and you're there for them

    This is the perfect book to read right now The news as Brad Aronson points out rarely covers the good stuff but small acts of kindness make a big difference and they’re always there if you look for themThis book inspired by the numerous acts of kindness Aronson’s family experienced when his wife was diagnosed with leukemia is filled with inspiring moments that will make your heart full and your eyes water This book is the big hug that we all need right now It certainly left me feeling like a weight had been liftedAnd as if that isn’t enough proceeds are being donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters I recommend this book to everyone I promise you’ll love itI received a copy in exchange for my honest review

    Faith in humanity restoredHumanKind Changing the World One Small Act At a Time was the most delightful and encouraging book I have read in a long time  While we are in the midst of unknown times during this pandemic this book was everything and I'm sure will continue to be even after the pandemic is over Reading real stories about individuals who took even the smallest of actions and the impacts they had on others was soul filling I loved how the author organized the stories in each chapter and how each story tied into the next with the what we can do and challenges at the end of each  The honesty and kindness of those individuals in the stories he tells is contagious  I found myself both laughing crying and my heart breaking and swelling with love for so many in the stories  I also really appreciated that the folks in this story weren't swimming in money or resources they gave with the little they had and it opened my eyes and my heart to want to do for those in need   Often when  people do acts of kindness they don't get to see the fruit of their act which sometimes feels discouraging  Reading the outcomes of the individuals in this story was a great reminded that even the smallest things can have the biggest impacts At the end of the book there is a Hall of Fame which lists all the organizations mentioned in the book and then some It's a great place to start figuring out how to give back and I'm excited to get involved with some of those organizations I am grateful to have received this Kindle book from a Goodreads giveaway and am glad I can share my honest opinion on the book  I will definitely be buying this book as gifts etc for the foreseeable future and even plan on purchasing a hardcopy of it for myself I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did

    I’m totally here for this book It is so good and uplifting and happy Humankind is one that you need to get and then gift to a friend This is a great reminder that a small of act of kindness can go so much further than you could ever imagine Sometimes people just need that little bit of help and a small action can have such a large trickle effect This is one of those books you will want to hug when you finishThis book is told in small stories about people from around the world So today I challenge you to celebrate Celebrate something little like a good meal a long walk a new friend or even just a light turning from red to green

    A really beautiful read whether during a time of upheaval or not This book was chosen by my book club as a feel good journey while we find ourselves surrounded by news of the relentlessness of the current global health pandemic COVID 19 social unrest and heightened divisiveness among political parties Diplomatically articulated I hopeWith a touching recount of how others reached out to his family when his wife was diagnosed with cancer Aronson launches an exposition of myriad selfless acts that prove not only to alter the life of another but often lead to a larger lasting effort that impacts countless others Extraordinary examples of paying it forwardHe rounds things out by including encouragement and information for the reader to identify ways to do their part From financial contributions to ways to get involved the possibilities are endless If you're like me and don't mind a few happy tears now and then give this one a try
