Yahoo how good grows: Ripples of kindness

someone could post "I am placing the envelope in my closet in a shelter for the homeless, do you?" or "I paid the toll for the car behind me, do you?" The message will appear Yahoo! person in this state can be shared via social networks like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, and will be posted on an interactive world map on the campaign website

Buy a stranger a bus ticket. Donate duplicate tools for a neighborhood garden. Abandon a residence card for an overworked teacher. Do something nice and then connect to the share via Yahoo, Twitter and Facebook.

Yahoo! want to encourage you to do something good and we hope your online sharing sparks others to do good works so well. Newly launched Yahoo! rings of kindness is the place to do this.

User John bought coffee for the local fire fighers held the elevator door for other user Rahkee, and uses N Mc fed lean stray cat. You can browse thousands of recent acts of kindness and add your own. Your visual ripple of kindness "is more than the others read your idea and make a similar action.

To test this model, Yahoo first took to the streets. On the day of the most commercial of food this year - the day before Thanksgiving - the team paid the grocery bills of foreigners.

The response was very positive. Business Wire has reported that one of these recipients - Department of the employee parking and traffic - has said he will not give any tickets for the final day. Other recipients wanted to continue forward acts of kindness as well.

Yahoo has designated the day of the acts of kindness:

City: free port select people at the post office in the busiest shipping day of the year: Dec. 13.

Santa Photos: The payment of photos of people, the busiest day of the year then Santa's shopping malls: December 18.

 Travel expenses: Purchase of human rights baggage at airports designated as the busiest travel day: December 23.

Your single good deed, big or small, can inspire others and cause a ripple effect of kindness that continues to grow as others join in. Start something today — the more people who take action, the larger your ripple will become.
