45 Acts of Kindness, Part 3

From Alison in Frisco:

I did not know Steve and I do not know you.  But your beautiful memorial "45 Acts of Kindness" touched me this morning.  It was a bit of a rough morning - everyone at my house is still adjusting to the time change so the morning routine was stressful.  After getting my kids dressed, ready and off to school I decided to get a Starbucks, which is a rare treat for me.  A kind stranger in the drive thru anonymously bought a $45 gift card for me and accompanying it was the flyer stating that the gift was given in memory of Steve on his 45th birthday.  

At first I was just shocked and thankful, but then I felt the need to pay it forward.  I immediately felt drawn to the mention that Steve loved baseball.  My husband played baseball most of his childhood and in college. He now he shares his love of the game with our son as he coaches his team in Frisco.  Our whole family truly loves the sport.  So, today I made a donation to the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation in Steve's memory.  

The foundation provides scholarships, grants and camps for children in need as well as trips to Rangers Ballpark for children battling cancer.  Read more here:

God Bless


From Kelly in Oklahoma:

In honor of a former parent of some really great students, I brought donuts to my staff today! Steve Damm was taken too soon by brain cancer. He loved kindness! Each year on his birthday, his family organizes an Acts of Kindness day! Steve Damm made a difference while he was here and his legacy will live in through his kids, Cooper and Katie!

From Caren in Plano:

I bought a stranger breakfast in the McDonalds drive thru. When I told the cashier what I wanted to do, he looked at me like I was crazy and asked "Are you sure?"


From Jason in Lewisville: 

Paid for breakfast for a mom and her son. Forgot to print the cards, but told her the story and she pledged to return the act of kindness for someone else!

Donated a gift of flight to a Ph.D. and Professor at University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Steve so enjoyed his flight with me on a trip to Houston.
