The mightiest shade trees and biggest smiles come from “small” seeds of kindness

I was recently having coffee with a wonderful woman who reached out to invest her time to help grow MagazineLiteracy.org. Every year, she organizes a music recital with the proceeds supporting a charitable cause in her community. She said that the next recital would, in a “small” way support literacy needs in her community by sending magazines to children and families learning to read. I was glad for this generous idea, but explained that there is no such thing as small when it comes to acts of kindness. When you plant a seed in your own backyard, a big and mighty oak will grow that will provide joy and protection for countless children and families. From that oak hundreds more seeds will fall to sprout in the minds and hearts of individuals in countless communities. So every bit that each person contributes is big… and the smiles on children’s faces are huge… and the gladness and gratefulness in the hearts of moms and dads whose children learn and love to read is tremendous.
