You know what? Sometimes it’s easy to believe there is more bad in the world than good. That’s simply not true and we are out to prove it! Nicole’s Kindness is Contagious column has been running weekly in Forum Communications newspapers in North Dakota and Minnesota since 2011. People from all over the country (and one guy in Canada) have sent her stories of the acts of kindness they’ve committed and how great it made them feel or those times when they received a kind deed at just the right moment. When we share these stories as the giver, receiver or witness, we make kindness contagious!
