You have read the trending stories of random samaritans paying for shoes for the homeless, children using their allowance to pay for the groceries of an unsuspecting customer or anonymous patrons paying for Happy Meals for the car behind them in the drive through. Cynthia takes a look at the reasons why the acts of kindness are increasing in a questionable economy and the impact the acts have on the recipients. Are all recipients of kindness happy about the gifts? We'll talk to Brite Divinity School's Assistant Professor of Theological and Social Ethics Professor, Keri Day and CEO of Chase Auto Finance and 40 Acts of Kindness founder, Thasunda Brown Duckett about the culture of giving in America and the debate over the "kindness" factor in America.
