Relive the surprise (and the tears) of the 12 Days of Kindness!

Relive all the hugs, smiles and tears of this year's 12 Days of Kindness by

Throughout our fourth annual 12 Days of Kindness, we lent a helping hand, lightened a family's burden, delivered a smile to someone's face and lifted the spirits of some truly deserving recipients.

But we couldn't have done it without the support of the generous sponsors and everyone who took time to send in a nomination.

At, we feel so fortunate to share the stories of these remarkable people who live in our city.

We hope that by sharing these stories of kindness, it will inspire others to perform acts of kindness of their own.

We received hundreds of nominations and is looking forward to sharing even more acts of kindness in the New Year.
