Mailbox money spurs holiday kindness

Keep an eye on your mailbox. You may be getting a special holiday delivery.

A local group determined to spur random acts of kindness is once again sending crisp, $10 bills to people around the Capital Region with one simple request – use it to make someone’s day.

While you may not be able to buy much with $10 these days, you can still buy a smile. The Peak Partners team at Keller Williams thinks that’s a pretty good investment.

Their "Peak of Kindness" project started several years ago.

Leah Slocum got the benevolent ball rolling after seeing a streaming series that explored the kindness of strangers.

It’s an annual tradition now. Team members assemble packages complete with the $10 cash and an explanation of the project – and mail them out. Pictures have popped up all over social media. Kids of all ages use the money to spread some holiday cheer.
