43 acts of kindness update

Cooper, Katie and I are blown away by the response so far to 43 acts of kindness! We can't wait to celebrate Steve's 43rd birthday by sharing love and kindness with the folks all around us.

1. I created an event on Facebook (you can find it by clicking here), and already 160 people have committed to performing an act of kindness this Friday in memory of Steve! Thank you so much for embracing our idea. (You can read the original post here.)

2. Our friend Kelly Cox suggested that we make available a card that you can print to attach to a gift or to leave behind on Friday. You can click here for the printable card.

3. Please remember to email me Friday after you've performed your act of kindness. Send a note about what you did and a photo if you have it. (Cellphone photos are great.) I can't wait to share with everyone the love you all are sharing.

4. Feel free to share the idea with your circle of friends -- through your own blog, email, Facebook, word of mouth.

Hi Tyra, I followed your blog 2 years ago, as a result of Shannon Rohde talking about your wonderful family. I was touched by your story, your family, and your unbelievable positive spirit. I truely hope you, Copper and Katie are doing well. I love this idea of "43 acts of kindness." I am a high school guidance counselor and just started a program/club that I am incredibly motivated and passionate about called "Friends of Rachel. (Rachel's Challenge). The premise of the club is to spread kindness throughout our environment. It is SO simple!!! Rachel's life was cut short but her legacy lives on world wide and I love sharing this with young people.

Her motto:

I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion then it will start a chain reaction of the same. - Rachel Scott

I am glad that Shannon told me to visit this blog and I hope Steve gets to watch hundreds and thousands "acts of kindness" from above. Take care - Raquel
