ribbon as symbol of random giving (donation) of kindness, love, selfless assistance, altruistic motiveRandom acts of kindness happen all around us.

Your child leaves you an unexpected note. The person in line ahead of you at a restaurant drive-through picks up your tab. Someone goes out of their way to make you feel valued, special, or loved — just because.

Special moments of goodness happen every day at Beacon, too, as we set out to create exceptional experiences for our patients, families and guests.

Today is National Random Acts of Kindness Day.

So we’re asking you to take a minute and tell us about an act of kindness that you’ve witnessed at Beacon. Share something special you’ve seen or tell us what kind act someone did for you that made you feel blessed.

Post your story in the comment area below or email your story to The Beam at TheBeam@beaconhealthsystem.orgMaybe the story you share will encourage someone to take a minute to brighten someone else’s day.
