We started in the morning by getting all this packed up and ready to go.
At Lucas' soccer game Kayla gave out a couple small gifts to two girls.
We went to Chick-Fil-A and gave out two vanilla iced coffees
We left this gift card for free Chicken Minis on the table for someone to find.
We went to the animal shelter and donated blankets...
...and Lucas attempted to come home with this little pup!
We went to the library and donated a book and found a little boy to give a gift to. When I explained to his mom what we were doing she said she has a friend (in another state) who has a son with Down syndrome and she's been posting all about the RAK for WDSD. How cool that she was aware of this from her friend's posts ... and was the recipient of a RAK herself!
Went through the drive thru at McDonald's and asked to have these gift cards handed out to the next two cars.
We went to Wendy's for a Frosty break ...
...and gave this sweet lady a gift card. I'm bummed this is the only picture I have; I thought I took a couple more with my phone, but this was the only one. She has a daughter named Kayla and her mom worked for ARC for 30 years.
Last stop: Fire station to donate stuffed animals for them to keep on hand for kids when needed. This guy has a nephew with autism and another guy has a 2nd cousin with Down syndrome. They just might join Kayla's team in October for the Buddy Walk!
We had a great time and I think the kids really enjoyed making other people's days by giving them unexpected gifts.
