Our twenty-second random act of kindness for the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy honors the memory of Victoria Soto, age 27, a first grade teacher who died trying to protect her students. Her quick and selfless response is credited with saving some of the lives in her classroom. Family and friends remember her as a loving teacher who lit up in the presence of her students and who thought and spoke of them fondly, calling them her "angels" and always striving to do more for them.
In remembrance of Victoria Soto's dedication to her students and her passion and love for them, Cathy made a special donation of needed classroom supplies to her local elementary school to a first grade teacher whose impact on students was close to her own heart:
Thank YOU, Patti, for all that you have done for George and the many children whose lives you have changed and enriched throughout the years." - Cathy
