EL PASO (KRLD) - Ruben Martinez and his mom Rose are shocked at all the response they are getting on social media. 

On Twitter, Ruben Martinez asked people to commit acts of kindness after the deadly El Paso Shooting. Ruben says, "It's really amazing. I didn't think a lot of people would be responding a lot."

Many people are posting their acts of kindness with the #elpasochallenge.

Ruben's mother Rose Gandarilla says, "I posted it thinking a few people like my family and my friends would respond and help him out. But, it's just gone beyond anything we expected."

Ruben is also doing acts of kindness. Their advice: be kind to each other all day every day.
