I just wanted to take a minute to share this really quick. Thought maybe some of you could help:)
Two and a half years ago, best friend in the whole, wide world lost her two precious twin baby girls. Reese and Scotlyn were born at 25 weeks due to severe preeclampsia.
This Christmas season, Kim wanted to do something special to remember her baby girls! Looking at their little empty stockings hanging on the mantle on Christmas day did nothing but bring her more grief. So, this year, she decided to fill their stockings with random acts of kindness!! She is asking people to do a random act of kindness. Type up a short note (and a pic, if you want) about what your act of kindness was and email it to her at firstname.lastname@example.org . She will print them all out and put them in their stockings on X-Mas Eve. On Christmas day, they will take them out and read them to Reese and Scotlyn with their family. You can read more about this on her blog- A Day in the Life of a Toddler.
I'm sharing this for 2 reasons:
1. I think it is a fabulous idea!!!! What better way to celebrate the life of your sweet angel baby!!!! I though others might be inspired to do the same and thought it might make it a little easier for you and your family to get through the Holiday Season.
2. I love Kim so much! She would do anything for anyone!! And, I thought it would be so amazing if I could get others to help!!! It's so very special for people that you love to go through with the random acts for her babies....but, it would be so special if she got some from random strangers too!!! It would mean the world to her!!!!!!!
Want to give back this Holiday Season?? Here is a list of Random Acts of Kindness to help inspire you!! http://www.randomactsofkindness.org/kindness-ideas You will be giving back x3!!!!! Once, for the person you help with the act of kindness, once for Reese and once for Scotlyn!;)
I would LOVE soooo much for these two little stockings to be filled this Christmas!!
Thanks so much for your help!!! Merry Christmas, friends!!!!!
