    Buddhism A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity. Judaism He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor. Proverbs 22:9 Christianity Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned 1 Timothy 1:5 Islam BEHOLD, God enjoins justice, and the doing of good, and generosity towards [one's] fellow-men; Quran 16:90 (Asad) Baha'i Faith To give and to be generous are attributes of Mine; well is it with him that adorneth himself with My virtues. Baha'u'llah

    It inspired me to do good unto others, not just once in a while but every day. We can all make a difference, a little hand out, a helping hand, asking after one's health, Can I be of help? Giving of one's self. I do try, but I could try harder. Be nice to your neighbours, Do a Good Deed a Day. No matter how small.

  • ADELAIDA C BRILLEBOURG

    Give me a lot of inspiration...!. Thank!!

  • Diane

    Everything, so moving and true I believe.

  • shanta

    never forget your bad times and also never forget those that assisted you through them. if you find an opportunity to assist them , well and good, if not do good to others. the wheel turns and we must always bear that in mind

  • apu

    I was highly moved !

  • Ann Shahbaz

    Made me cry. Love the title... thanks for this. Kindness heals everything.

    We must be cognoscente of how we treat and interact with everyone that is put in our path. We don’t know what afflicts them; if their needs are physical or spiritual, if they are going through a time of sorrow or grief, if they feel lost or criticized… Judgment should not be the first thing in our minds or hearts, but a smile should always be our opening line! Everyone come to lives for a reason, and it is up us to figure it out. Give your heart, do good to others, always strive to be a better person and to walk in the light.

  • Roxanne

    Eventually, the things we sow in life, the behavior we plant, the attitude we give...everything we freely give without 'expecting' anything in return; returns to us, our children..our children's children on to the generations 'WE' may never meet. Be careful what you sow...because it will find it's way back to you...eventually.

    Jesus said -Mathhew 25 Vrs. 31 "But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit upon his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered in his presence, and he will separate them as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will place the sheep at his right hand and the goats at his left. 34 Then the King will say to those on the right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.' 37 "Then these righteous ones will reply, 'Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? 39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you?' 40 And the King will tell them, 'I assure you, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!' AMEN

    I can't get it to play!

    I will show this to my 5th and 6th graders in Ethics Class because it shows in a few minutes the importance of living an ethical life. We truly never know when we will be on the receiving or giving end of an ethical choice.

    Kindness doesn't always need words.

  • Dianne

    Giving is from the heart!

  • Dianne

    Kindness is never forgotten. This is so beautiful.

  • Ken

    As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. It would take a book to tell the story of the number of pictures in this video. It is much more effective than reading the story. I applaud those who gave us this moving video.

  • Tom Paine

    Paying it forward: so much better for the soul than whining is. And emotional intelligence is the only kind that matters in the end. This ad is a wonder.

  • Dian

    This keeps my hope and faith alive by knowing things are getting better. We just have to keep inspiring each other, uplifting one another. We are the greater good. Namaste.

  • Gurudatt Kundapurkar

    So simple yet so effective in conveying its message ! And I found it hard to believe that the video message wasn't promoted by any NGO but a commercial organisation with a big heart and imagination! May the inspiring and compassionate spirit go viral.

  • Tracey

    Simply beautiful. What a wonderful video & so true. While it does not always come back in so direct a fashion, kindness does return to us always. Always pay it forward, it is the greatest gift & brings such pleasure.

  • samsara

    beautiful. nobody will be a poor man by donating.

  • uma

    Young generation should always remember what they get good from the society and they should wait for their turn. Giving in return is always happy :)

  • meshack

    Putting a smile in someone's face. Quite an inspiration.

  • Badrinath

    Not sure it always happens this direct way. But it the only way to act and to be happy.

    "Too often we underestimate the power of a smile, a touch, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." - Leo Buscaglia ~ Kindness is powerful, and though it asks for nothing in return, it always comes back to the giver, in one form or another.

  • Kristin Pedemonti

    I've heard this story many times before, to see it in video, is simply beautiful. Please, whatever you do, do it out of kindness, you never know how deeply it will impact someone. HUG and <3.

  • sreenath

    giving is living

  • Sharon

    One of the important things in life - giving a fellow human being a helping hand when it's needed the most. Giving without expectations but you never know where it will lead. Bless the people who put the ad together.

  • Elizabeth

    Let us not forget who helps us, especially our loved ones. My daughter is rich now and the only thing i could do for her when she was born, because i was very ill, was to put her in a good home where she had opportunities for education and success. My daughter could choose to be angry at me for abandoning her or she could be grateful that i took the time to place her well. Time will tell.

  • J Onibokun

    There is no greater joy nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone's life. Every man is guilty of all the good he didn't do.

  • Vicky

    This is amazing and I definitely needed the tissues. Giving from the heart.

  • mike bootwala
