26 Acts of Kindness

On the one month anniversary of the Newtown tragedy, we would like to commerate the victims by asking the community to take the 26 Acts of Kindness Challenge. All across the nation, people have responded to NBC's Ann Curry, who challenged the nation to do more good. As Curry says, it doesn’t matter what you do or how much money you spend, or even if you report back. “I know the truth,” she writes. “If you do good, you feel good. It’s the most selfish thing you can do. Right now, this country wants to heal. I think the only thing comforting in the face of a tragedy like this is to do something good with it if you can. Be a part of that wave.”

We hope you decide to take this challenge and be a part of the wave. We would love to hear what wonderful acts of kindess you decide to do. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to protecting the lives of mothers and infants.
