Kindness is contagious

YAKIMA, Wash. -- It's solidarity with those grieving families that were motivating local folks to be kind to one another. It's called 26 Acts of Kindness. In honor of the victims of the Connecticut shooting, people pledged to do 26 nice things for others. Beyond Yakima, the movement not only spread nationwide, but to other countries as well. Locally, people had been buying each other coffee, donating toys, and doing things that could brighten someone's day.

"They've been giving them clothes, giving gloves, hats when they need it," said Daniel George.
