Good deeds create endless ripples of kindness

Even the simplest act of kindness can make someone’s day and inspire them to pay it forward.

Ripple, a short film from Singapore, tells a story about a man who wants nothing more than to pay tribute to a stranger’s good deed that moved him decades ago. As the story unfolds, something beautiful happens that nearly forced me to tears.

What an amazing little film. This is a testament to how a simple act of caring can create an endless ripple of good. I only hope that you, dear reader, are able to pay it forward after watching this. I know I will.
