A Prairie Village woman who spent the year after her 40th birthday performing 40 acts of goodness to honor people who made a mark in her life is inspiring others.
The Kansas City Star reports that Tami Greenberg called her project "A Year of Being 40 and Grateful."
The Star's story about her moved Danny O'Neill to tears. The founder of the Roasterie, a Kansas City coffee roaster, announced a similar goal and encouraged others to do the same in his annual Christmas letter, sent to nearly 14,000 people.
Others also were inspired. A work colleague sent a letter of thanks to an old teacher/coach from high school. Another woman started her own project for her 40th birthday.
Greenberg says she's "touched" by the response.
