#40AOK encourages Dallas to perform random acts of kindness


I am a big believer in a "pay it forward" mentality and believe that in your life you receive what you give. After seeing a homeless woman every day leaving the gym, Beaux Wellborn decided he wanted to better his community. He is challenging individuals around Dallas to perform 40 acts of kindness in 40 days beginning March 1 and running through April 9. Acts could include paying for a stranger’s cup of coffee or, something on a larger scale, such as volunteering at a food bank. After each good deed, participants are to post a picture/description of what they did on social media sites using the hashtag #40AOK in hopes that what they do will inspire others to take action. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts with #40AOK are brought together on the website,
