Awesome Acts of Kindness


After Monday's horrific bombings at the Boston Marathon, many stories came out of people stepping up to help out the victims in the midst of all the chaos.

People could be seen running to help others immediately after the first bomb went off. Many marathon runners, who had just completed the race, ran straight to local hospitals to donate blood, just after crossing the finish line. And local Boston residents offered up their homes to people who became stranded after streets were being shut down.

Despite the terrible scene, It seemed like the good stories kept showing up. Actor / comedian Patton Oswalt posted a great comment on to his Facebook page about this, declaring to anyone who would commit such a heinous act that "the good outnumber you, and we always will." You can read his full statement here.

Gavin, however, could not disagree with Patton Oswalt more. Saying that no matter how much good people do, it will never be enough to overtake the affects bad and the apathetic. Listen to him talk about Patton's comments here:
 

Jason and Katie want you to help prove Gavin wrong by showing him that there is more good in the world than bad. They have started 1079 Awesome Acts of Kindness campaign and are asking people to perform an act of kindness and let the world know by tagging it #1079AwesomeActs on Twitter or sharing it with us on Facebook.

Help us prove Gavin wrong!
Listen to listeners call in to talk about the different awesome acts of kindness they have performed:

Awesome Acts
I heard the challenge yesterday morning, but decided to wait until I received an awesome act, and it only took 1 day. I got off work a little early and hit up the JK Liquors on Folsom BLVD. The guy behind me saw I was in the military, thanked me for my service, bought my 6 pack and took off before I could even ask him his name. More proof that the good outnumber the evil, and we always will.
