Today We Got To See 150 Kindergarteners Shout With Pure Joy. Giving Makes A Difference.

We participated in the 40 acts of kindness challenge to give out school supply backpacks to the kindergarteners at F.M. Gilbert Elementary School just outside of Dallas, TX. It was fantastic.

Imagine 150 rambunctious boys and girls lined up in a school cafeteria who’ve been told that they each have a gift waiting behind a curtain. Now add a drum roll, confetti flying everywhere and the sudden drop of the curtain to reveal four beautiful pageant queens handing out specially labeled backpacks for each kid. Sound amazing? It was!

What’s amazing about giving is the joy flows both ways! Here’s a tweet from the founder and director of 40aok that proves this:
