Acts of Kindness: His positivity makes others smile, we returned the favour

Watch as we ambushed Ryan Benoit as part of 12 Days of KindnessĀ 

Welcome to day two of's 12 Days of Kindness.

Today we visited the New Sudbury Centre to surprise a young man who is truly inspirational.

Ryan Benoit is the owner of The Positive Inception, a clothing line brand sold in the mall and online.

Benoit was born with cerebral palsy but feels his disability has made him into the strong, positive and driven person he is today.

He brings joy and kindness to the mall every day and his positive attitude resonates with many who meet him, so much so, that when mall employees heard about the surprise we had in store for Benoit - they wanted to help.

Staff collected money amongst themselves to give Benoit a $100 gift card to HMV and $50 gift card for Teavana along with a sweet gift package.

Kindness really does give birth to kindness!

Make sure to check back to every weekday morning until Dec. 23 as we surprise 12 worthy people with a little kindness just in time for the holidays.
