On Monday, Noah and I set off to do our first random act of kindness, part of our #26RandomActs Challenge! With the help of a few friends (thanks Monica and Beth!!), we adopted an angel from our YMCA angel tree Our angel was a 7 year old boy who asked for school supplies, hats, scarves, and socks.
On Monday Noah and I dropped off a big white bag full of goodies for our little angel (and a smaller bag of new baby toys for the YMCA to add to someone else’s bag). Noah carried the little bag of toys in and handed it to the girl behind the counter. I explained to him (just as I did when we were shopping for the angel) that we were giving toys and gifts to another little boy. He just smiled and nodded, like he competely understood. He didn’t have any problem handing over a big bag of toys, so I was super proud. I thought surely he would want to keep them!
I was able to snap a few pictures of our trip
