(MOBILE, Ala.) You never know who is standing next to you.
Take, for instance, the woman loading purchases into her car at Bel Air's Target.
When asked if she's ever committed "random acts of kindness,",she said, "People in line in front of me and people in line behind me, I've paid for their purchases."
It makes her feel good, she said.
Turns out, the generous lady is Sharon Williams, the mother of former Alabama player Wallace Gilberry who now plays for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Seems mom has a soft place in her heart for her fellow man.
Random acts of kindness...
They don't have to be big things, something as simple as moving a shopping cart out of a parking space.
It's just a way to let your fellow man know you're doing something for him or her, even if they never know you did it.
And now there is a national movement underway to commit those random acts of kindness in honor of the 20 children and six adults killed at Sandy Hook Elementary.
It's a Facebook and Twitter event called 26 Acts.
It's a great idea born, in part, by Auburn resident Warren Tidwell and Tony Perkins, the son of former Alabama coach Ray Perkins.
"Someone contacted us,," said Tidwell, "they put 10 dollars in a Christmas card, and it was addressed to 'you', and they put it under the wiper arm of a car for someone to find when they came out of a grocery store."
NBC's Ann Curry at the same time, had started her own Facebook and Twiiter Act of Kindness event.
She's always had a special place in their heart for kids, as she told Local 15 during an interview several years ago.
"I believe information is power," she said back then, "and if people know what is going on, as a country, we say when something is wrong, that needs to stop. That has happened time and time again."
NBC contacted Tidwell, and asked about working together... and Tidwell suggested Ann Curry take the project completely because of her ability to reach the entire country.
