Uvalde Memorial Acts of Kindness

 On May 24, our nation was once again rocked with the horrific and tragic loss of multiple young children and their teachers. This senseless act of violence leaves us all feeling devastated, vulnerable, and helpless. As we struggle to comprehend the reasons, problems, and solutions surrounding an act such as this, we also cannot help but think of the lives directly impacted by the shooting, especially those that were lost.

Whenever we try to find footing again after horrors such as this, it feels only right to acknowledge those lost, particularly in ways that honor who they were. We want to take the time to look at these beautiful children and educators as human beings, to see through their eyes how they lived and loved, what brought them joy, and what might impact the world today to keep their memory alive when their physical presence is so sorely missed.
Once again, with great sorrow that this even has to be a repeated event, we would like to do as we did with the Sandy Hook tragedy and honor those lost in Uvalde by spreading love, joy, and kindness in ways that are meaningful to each of them as an individual.
As we are working hard to collect funds and generous donations to be able to do this, we want to recognize the all-too-long list of lives that have been taken away from us before their time.

As we collect money to fund random acts of kindness in their memory, we are also attempting to research the interests, passions, and dreams of each person that was lost. Our goal is to make a positive impact in this time of suffering, so that the beautiful things about these people are not forever overshadowed the horrible way they were taken from us. Please, purchase, donate, and share- whatever you can do to help us reach this goal is appreciated.

We are currently selling stickers and donating all the money raised to fund these random acts of kindness. To purchase, please Venmo or Paypal and include your address. We are also accepting direct donation .
