They say kindness is contagious. If so, these comics may just be the pathogen you need to succeed... at being kind.

Random Acts of Kindness Week is nearly over. That's good news if you're the breed of human who can only handle being kind for a day or two -- let alone randomly kind.

If you are inclined to kindness, however, you've got a whole 48 hours to pull some off. Is that enough time? Probably not. It could be hopeless! Listen, we're talking about kindness, not optimism.

Should you miss the kindness deadline -- randomly or otherwise -- relax. You can be kind any day of the calendar year. The world could use it. It can't get enough of it, in fact. And when we say "fact," we mean it. Scientists did a thing. There are papers somewhere.

Consider your kindness strategy with the aid of these comics. Then go try it out. Maybe you'll set off a chain of events with moving, tragic symmetry?
