Olivia Engel

Our seventeenth random act of kindness for the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy honors the memory of Olivia Engel, age 6, who was known for her huge personality, sense of humor, wiggliness, and her love of swimming and other activities, including dance, Girl Scouts, and church programs. She led the family's nightly prayers over dinner.

In Olivia's memory, we are sponsoring swimming lessons for a child at the Boys and Girls Club. This donation was made possible by Gretchen Henry, who generously contributed the necessary funds. Thank you, Gretchen, for your support!

  1. I love this idea so mentioned it on Facebook. My friend told some other teachers and said, "Someone left a random $1 scratch ticket on the board. It hit for $10 so we all matched it and made a nice donation to the Y next door."
