On what would have been Lauren Loughneed's fifth birthday, many people have answered a call to perform random acts of kindness in her memory.

Amanda Zarifah and her husband, Lauren's parents, launched the campaign, asking people to perform random acts of kindness during the month of January in memory of their daughter.

Lauren died last April from Krabbe disease, a central nervous system disease that affects muscle tone and movement, as well as vision and hearing.

Since the campaign started this week, responses have been pouring in on social media, with people using the hashtag #lifewithlolRAK (Life with Lauren Olivia Loughheed Random Act of Kindness).

One woman treated a stranger to a coffee

Others decided to help out at a shelter

Some put their shovels to work

Others were lucky enough to be on the receiving end of a kind gesture

Even cats benefited from the campaign
