To celebrates being kind and promotes acts of kindness. 500 Kindnesses is a charity bicycle ride from Toronto to NYC by Todd O'Reilly and his son Daegan to raise acts of kindness. Instead of raising money for a specific charity, they asked “sponsors" to pledge acts of kindness to friends, relatives, and strangers and shared them with others online. Todd and his son's ultimate goal was to raise over 500 acts of kindness – one for approximately every two miles of our journey.
