House adopts Random Acts resolution
The House of Representatives this week unanimously adopted a resolution introduced by state Rep. Harry Readshaw, D-Allegheny, declaring the week of Feb. 10 - 16 as Random Acts of Kindness Week in Pennsylvania.
House Resolution 608 marks the 20th anniversary of the week which is designed to spread kindness through the community one act at a time.
â€śPennsylvania was one of the first states to endorse an official recognition of the value of Random Acts of Kindness,â€ť Mr. Readshaw said. â€śThe kindness revolution caught fire within Pennsylvaniaâ€™s schools and communities and is now a nationwide movement to improve lives one good deed at a time. The whole purpose of this celebration is to brighten somebodyâ€™s day, for no specific reason, with no expectation of receiving anything in return. This week is a great opportunity to show and teach compassion and empathy to our youth.â€ť
