Recapping our Random Acts of Kindness

It wasn't as easy to do the Random Acts of Kindness for World Down Syndrome Day that we did last year; this year I had to wait until the kids were out of school and then we had a small window of opportunity before Kayla had ballet class.

 We made the most of it with 4 gift cards to give out.

We stopped by Game Stop on our way to a quick dinner at Chick-Fil-A. At Game Stop Kayla gave her card to a father who was with his 2 sons. His younger son said, "so that's why you're wearing those shirts!" and I explained about the date and the chromosomes and the older son said, "yeah I learned about that in biology. Cool shirts!"

Lucas put his gift card in between some games for someone to find.

At CFA Lucas gave his card to a guy who said he really likes seeing people with Down syndrome out in their communities; has a brother who is "non-verbal and high-functioning" but doesn't have Down syndrome, so he has a connection to the disability community.

Kayla gave her card to a lady who was really touched and asked if she could give Kayla a hug in return as her own RAOK.

The kids really enjoy doing this and I'm looking forward to continuing this tradition year after year!

Where did you get your shirts? I LOVE them! I ended up wearing the same shirt I've had for the last few years which is kind of blah.
