Acts of Kindness
Random Act of Kindness helps you chose a good deed to perform, and share it with your friends! You can also donate to worthwhile charities directly through their websites!
We all want to make the world a better place, but where to start? You can donate, volunteer, organize, join, march, walk and do a multitude of other things, but sometimes it’s hard to find direction.
Once you find an act you like, you then have the option of posting the act on Twitter to inspire others. Sometimes the smallest gestures can have an impact on people around you and make the world a better place.
Users post messages, known as “whispers,” which are displayed as text superimposed over an image automatically retrieved from Whisper’s own search engine or uploaded by the user.
Anyone can post an anonymous message to the service in the form of an image macro: text overlaid on a picture. When you open the app, you see six such images. Each one has a “secret” on it. You can respond to a message publicly or privately, choosing a public anonymous post or a private chat. Users don’t have a public identity in the app. While they do have persistent handles, there’s no way to contact them except *through* the messages they post.

Pay It Forward
A nice way to increase happiness is to get out of our own mental loops and start thinking about others. Pay It Forward is built on the idea that small acts of kindness can add up to big changes. The app sends daily suggestions for a simple and fun act of kindness, and keeps track of your all your kind deeds. You can track and share your progress and see where other random acts of kindness are going down. There’s also a classroom section designed to help teachers promote kindness in schools. Available at iTunes and Google Play.
