They say kindness is contagious, and when a simple idea for the nation to band together do one small act of kindness in memory of each of the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, the response was overwhelming.

The idea was spearheaded by NBC News’ Ann Curry, who first tweeted out to her 1.2 million followers earlier this week, “Imagine if all of us committed to 20 mitvahs/acts of kindness to honor each child lost in Newtown. I’m in. If you are RT #20Acts.”

Supporters ran with the idea, and kind acts all over the country were completed by strangers who just wanted to make someone’s day by buying their lunch or giving them home-baked goods. The #26acts quickly went viral and is still going strong days later spreading positivity around the country all in memory of the innocent lives that were lost.
