When it comes to kindness, it's not just the grand gestures that make a big difference. It's the everyday things you do, too.

And thanks to you, the #ShareKindness campaign surpassed its goal of one million acts of kindness, inspiring 1,114,622 acts of kindness in the month of December.

From TODAY's partner LEGO — who donated $1 million worth of toys to Toys for Tots — to the 500 fans on the TODAY plaza who made signs celebrating kindness, the good deeds flew fast and furious.

"If you practice little acts of kindness, they build together to make something really awesome," said LEGO's Michael McNally on TODAY.
