Could 40 days of intentional kindness truly spark a revolution? Lisa Barrickman celebrated the days leading up to her 40th birthday by committing one act of kindness a day. Others embraced her endeavor, and in less than a year, more than 20,000 separate acts of kindness took place. In her new book, A Case for Kindness, Lisa shares the ripple effect that changed an entire community and how you can implement it in your own area of the world.
