The power of kindness goes a long way as shown in this video of one middle school's efforts to promote kindness. A group of 8th graders decided to undertake an experiment, doing random acts of kindness over the course of a year. They soon discovered that they preferred to be anonymous rather than to get thanks for their acts, so they called their group "The Breakfast Club." They learned the benefits of altruism in creating happiness, as their efforts expanded to include the whole school as well as outreach to their community.
