I was originally inspired by Justin Kan's podcast with Cameron Yarbrough (https://youtu.be/gzFsft2O8uo) and believed others might feel the pull to perform small acts of kindness as well.

August 3, 2021 Set up a landing page

Using carrd.co, I set up a simple landing page with a landscape from https://www.pixeltrue.com/scenic-illustrations

I then connected this page to sendfox, which i plan to use for now to just automate sending an email to do one simple task each day.

I know that's probably not the ideal method for this, but then again, I'm not even sure if this is something people would be interested in doing either.

Really have no existing monetization strategy for this one. Just looking to create good for now.

July 29, 2021 Came up with idea after listening to Justin Kan

Justin and Cameron Yarbrough were discussing the concept of living like you only had 1 year left. The idea that it would be spiritually cathartic to express gratitude really resonated with my new interest in the neurological benefits of meditation and mindfulness and gratitude -- I had to explore further.

I thought performing random small acts of kindness (i.e. complimenting a random stranger or sending a text of appreciation to a parent) would be an interesting avenue, and if a big enough movement gathered behind it, we could also counterbalance all the negativity in the world right now.

Initially, I wanted to try and push for a 1 year commitment, but settled for either 14-day or 28-day blocks instead so it would be less daunting. Going to crowdsource some ideas for small acts of kindness.
