Monica announced the details on Greg Street's show and together they'll be picking 10 winners based on submissions of 103 words (or less!) about a random act of kindness you have done.

Applicants can enter via V-103.com and each winner will be awarded $2,000 each courtesy of Monica's BeHUMAN Foundation and the People's Station, V-103.
