Victor Cruz, receiver for the New York Giants, played with 6-year-old Jack Pinto's name on his gloves and cleats on Sunday. This small gesture inspired journalist Ann Curry to ask her 1 million+ twitter followers to practice 26 acts of kindness in honor of each Newtown victim. We invite members of the town of Darien to participate. Let's come together as a community to spread empathy and kindness locally and beyond.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

- Make a Memorial Donation to Sandy Hook victims

- Sign up to volunteer at Person-to-Person

- Grocery shop for a senior as a volunteer for Aging in Place + Gallivant

- Make a donation to Domus House

- Donate non-perishable, unopened food to the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County

- Pick out a toy and donate it to Toys for Tots

- Buy that person behind you in line a cup of coffee.

- Cook dinner for a friend.

Feel free to mention your act of kindness on Twitter using the hashtag #26Acts or share with us in the comments.
