A Month Of Good Deeds

(KSL)  On a snowy spring morning armed with a dozen bags of food, water and blankets, Daniel Smith is on a mission.

One by one, he approaches individuals in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah who look like they’re struggling to stay warm or are in need of a little help.

“I’m just trying to give back and make a difference,” he replied when asked why he was out handing out care packages in the snow.

At his side is a man with a video camera capturing every tender moment, every exchange, every expression of thanks and every odd moment in between.

“I’ve been kind of fortunate my whole life,” Smith said. “And it just kind of hit me one day that it’s long past due that I stand up and do something.”

Smith decided to devote four weeks to performing random acts of kindness. Each week he came up with a project and then set a $125 budget for it.
