26 acts

26 acts.

we are on our way.

as i wrote yesterday, if 25 people join me by doing one act of kindness each, we can do 26 acts of kindness in memory of those lost at sandy hook elementary by the end of december.

+++ my act of kindness is dedicated to charlotte bacon. a friend's daughter recently had an accomplishment at school that is worthy of celebration. i sent her a card noting that we are proud of her with a gift card to one of her favorite restaurants so that she can treat her family to dinner to celebrate. i am also going to take malena to pick out some animals toys that we will donate to the local paws center when we are home for christmas, in honor of charlotte's dream of being a veterinarian.

+++ crystal's act of kindness is dedicated to dawn hochsprung, the school's principal who noted successes and various events at school. crystal bought her teacher's assistant "a starbucks gift card for all the work she does to keep me organized and caught up in class. i appreciate her and wanted her to know.

in addition, i wanted to share what was done at my school this week. last week our random acts of kindness club had a wishing well where students could "wish" for all sorts of things for themselves or most importantly for others. this week over 300 wishes were granted and over $3000 were raised to make sure every raven (our mascot) has a special holiday. clothes, shoes, lunch money, to more trivial like cookies, candy, and pizza were given. i love my school and the hearts of these kids."

+++ ellie's act of kindness is dedicated to olivia engel who was "outgoing and had a great sense of humor". ellie painted the nursery tonight of a pregnant friend who has preeclampsia.

+++ doreen - your act will be dedicated to mary sherlach

+++ marcie - your act will be dedicated to victoria soto

+++ ann - your act will be dedicated to anne marie murphy

+++ lisa - your act will be dedicated to lauren gabrielle rousseau

+++ chris - your act will be dedicated to noah pozner

we need 18 make acts of kindness to be done to make our goal of 26 acts in december.
let me know if you want to be one of the 18, and i will add you to the list.

happy thursday everyone, i think it is going to be a day with filled with a lot of good in the world.
