Knight Reading 2023-2024: Everyday Ubuntu

Why Little Things Make a Big Difference

While large scale and systemic changes need to happen to safeguard our collective future, we also have to be mindful of how important small acts of kindness and generosity can be in our daily lives and the ripple effect that they can create. 

  • What seemingly small interaction or moment in your life had a larger impact on you than you may have suspected at the time?
  • What little blessings are you thankful for in your life?

Additional Context

Everyday Ubuntu discusses the effects of both large and small acts that improve our lives. These smaller acts are part of the One Billion Acts of Peace campaign detailed on page 198. This organization, founded by a group of Nobel Laureates, focuses on how we can improve the lives of others and make a significant community impact through small gestures.
