It’s always the right time to do something kind. So how about starting right now?

Welcome to TODAY’s second-annual #ShareKindness campaign, a celebration of doing good. Throughout the month of December, we’ll be spotlighting stories of empathy, generosity and humanity.

And we’re encouraging YOU to get involved.

Follow #ShareKindness on Facebook, do something kind for someone else or let us know about a kind person who deserves to be recognized — and use the hashtag on Instagram or Twitter to tell us about it.

Help #ShareKindness by tagging the kindest person you know on our Facebook page.

Every story shared and every act of kindness committed, large or small, will count towards our goal of 1 million acts of kindness in 2016.

Together, we can make the world a kinder place, and end the year on a happy and helpful note.
