In case you were worried that Hamish, our Supernatural pig, was a little homesick, here’s a photo of him with our #FeedthePig winner, Crystal Southard. 
As you can see, Hamish loves his new home. But if you miss feeding the pig each Tuesday, you can always #getkind instead.
This month our theme is supporting the arts. We hope we can count on you to join in the fun, and don’t forget to share your photos and stories with us by tagging #theRandomAct.org and #getkind.

Did you know the fourth week in August is Be Kind to Humankind Week?
Why not celebrate by doing a few random acts of kindness for some of the awesome humans you know - or who you haven’t yet met. After all, a stranger is just a friend waiting to happen.
Now get out there and do some good, and don’t forget to save a little kindness for yourself too.

A big drum roll please! We received so many amazing designs. It was a really hard decision to choose only one, but after weighing in with our panel of sock monkeys, we’re proud to announce that our Caught in the Act poster contest winner is Serena Mercado.
We hope you’ll join us in congratulating the winner and that you’ll nominate a Kindness Superhero (or two or four or fifteen) through Caught in the Act. 
If you have questions about how the program works or who can be nominated, just drop by our blog. You can also send questions anytime to Events@theRandomAct.org.
And don’t forget to tag stories and photos of the amazing people you’ve “Caught in the Act” with #theRandomAct.org and #CITAct on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." - Dalai Lama
You don’t need a special day to be kind. Every single day is an opportunity to make the world a better place.
A single act of kindness may seem small, but you never know just how far it will go. Kindness is hard to give away because it always comes back to you. 
Now get out there and do some good and have an amazing week!

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” - Jane Goodall

Kindness counts. Always. Random acts of kindness do make a difference. 

We hope you’ll consider a random act of kindness or two (or four or fifteen) this weekend. You might even want to get your friends together and make this a Weekend of Kindness. 

Organize a park clean-up, serenade a local retirement community, or pay it forward with a cup of Joe. The possibilities are endless.

Now get out there and do some good and have a great weekend.

Random Acts started with a simple idea:  ”If all those talented, if slightly weird people could band together, we’d be an unstoppable force.” And, guess what? We are! We are conquering the world one random act of kindness at a time - thanks to you!
And, you know what? This is love.
