From the Back Cover
Every encounter with another person is an opportunity to be kind--a chance to change the world.
"A must-read. . . . If we all do our part, we can--through kindness--become the change that is desperately needed and that will transform countless lives."--from the foreword by Candace Payne, "Chewbacca Mom"
"I have had the opportunity to interact with Convoy of Hope up close and personal. Each time, I have come away deeply moved, inspired, changed, and motivated."--Dr. Henry Cloud, clinical psychologist, leadership expert, and author
"This book reveals the secrets to a more rewarding life. . . . You won't be able to put it down."--Anne Beiler, founder of Auntie Anne's

Their greatest display of kindness, however, is shown in the way they treat every person they come in contact with in their day-to-day lives."--Kevin Jonas Sr., The Jonas Group
"The authors take the 'random' out of acts of kindness to empower us toward an intentional kindness revolution."--Nicole Johnson, author, dramatist, and speaker

Top Customer Reviews
The book is a very quick read but there is a lot of information to digest. The quotes from various notable people kept the text lively. The information on the TED talk by Simon Sinek also added another dimension to the idea of kindness. The suggested "five kind ways" at the end of each chapter are great starters for finding your own ways to be kind to yourself and others.
It is an amazing concept that Your Next 24 Hours can start with one act of kindness, that becomes a day of kindness, that can grow into a lifestyle of kindness.
Although this isn't an original concept, the book proclaims that kindness and generosity are contagious and that, by showing kindness, we show others that they have worth and are important to us. There are even suggestions for ways to be kind.
The authors speak from experience, offering kindness daily through the organization Convoy of Hope. I think you'll enjoy their book and, even better, I believe that you will enjoy helping others and being kind. Being kind isn't limited to one day!
Donaldson is president of Convoy of Hope, which he cofounded with his siblings in 1994. Since then, Convoy has distributed $1 billion of food and emergency supplies to 80 million people in the U.S. and around the world. He and his siblings were the beneficiaries of the kindness of church folk who took them in when their dad was killed and their mom seriously injured in a drunk-driving accident. “Out of anger and bitterness,” he writes, “we could have chosen a life of crime or greed.” Instead, out of thankful hearts, a charity was founded that has brought help and hope to millions.”
We often hear stories of random acts of kindness. The challenge Donaldson poses in Your Next 24 Hours is to make the day before you “day one of a more rewarding life” (emphasis in original). To help you do that, he offers 22 short chapters about how kindness can make a lasting difference in your home, workplace, school, and community. Each chapter ends with “Kind Ways,” action steps to put kindness in action. The book is written winsomely, with stories from popular culture illustrating biblical principles about kindness, gratitude, and the power of hope.
I’m a friend of Hal’s and a fan of Convoy of Hope, so I’m happy to recommend both him and the organization he leads. But I also thoroughly enjoyed this book and the advice it offers about how to make acts of kindness a nonrandom part of each day.
