An act of kindness can come anytime, anywhere, from anyone — including someone very young. In honor of the Season of Kindness, we asked TODAY viewers to share photos of their kids doing something kind, and many of the responses made us swoon.

Here are some of our favorites:

1. “My daughter wanted to have a birthday party for her imaginary 'sister.' My son has grown out of the imaginary friend stage, and usually tries to tell her they aren't real. But on this night, he was happy to play along with her... Even taking selfies with her 'sister.'” — Ashley Lucas
