#26Acts: Ann Curry's Inspiring Challenge After the Sandy Hook Shooting

Last week's tragic school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut that tooks the lives of 20 children and six adults has left many wondering why and how something so horrific could happen.

There are many ways to help the families and community, but here's an easy one from Ann Curry: Do something nice. The NBC correspondent (@AnnCurrytweeted yesterday: "Imagine if we all committed to 20 acts of kindness for each child lost in Newtown? I'm in. RT #20Acts if YOU R in. #MTP #Supersoulsunday."

We're in, too -- along with all many others who have already started paying it forward, using #20Acts and #26Acts to honor all 26 victims who died at the school.)
