Bethpage mothers pay it forward with 'Random Acts of Kindness' campaign

BETHPAGE - A group of Bethpage moms has started a campaign of kindness in their community.

The Random Acts of Kindness campaign started when the Bethpage Moms group pitched in to help Rene Iannone, a young mother of three children. Iannone suffers from the autoimmune disease scleroderma.

The moms jumped in and not only raised money and provided meals to her family, but donated plane tickets so she could visit a specialist for treatment in Iowa.

"It's just beautiful and it's contagious, because now the whole community is like this," says Iannone.

The moms are doing everything from delivering flowers to strangers to placing stones with cheerful messages in public places. They are also fundraising to help another mother, whose son has stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma.
