Watch how an act of kindness can spread amongst people - The Feed Blog
(CBS) - We can all probably do with something nice and uplifting to brighten the day, and that is definitely how I would describe the above video. Watch how an act of kindness can spread amongst people. The rather touching video with music by Matisyahu is entitled "Kindness Boomerang" and was posted onto YouTube by Life Vest Inside who writes: Watch as the camera tracks an act of kindness as its passed from one individual to the next and manages to boomerang back to the person who set it into motion. Stand with us in spreading the love and repost our video on your wall! Together we can make a difference! A really beautiful video and message that has definitely earned itself a triple-rainbow salute from all of us here at The Feed. © 2011 CBS Interactive Inc.

Recently I came across another couple of sites which are similar in principle to Only2Clicks and Hyperigo.
