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:

Reading Children's Books
At this year's White House Easter Egg Roll, President Obama read the book "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" to a group of kids and was criticized for the way he read it.

Here's video of him reading the book:


Katie says it is impossible to sound good reading a kids book and that anyone who reads a kids book in front of other adults is going to do a bad job, so she challenges Jason and Gavin to read both of their son's favorite books.

Here is video of that:
