26 Tuesdays…Are you in?

TIME 100 Gala, TIME'S 100 Most Influential People In The World - Red Carpet

Serious Session Alert: To honor the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting, Ann Curry has started a viral movement called, “26 Acts of Kindness. She hopes each one of us will commit to doing one act of kindness for each of the 26 victims. If you tweet, you can go to #26actsofkindness to see what people are doing. Some are doing one act for each victim; some are doing 26 acts per victim! Some are even reading about each victim and trying to make their act of kindness related to that person in some way.

Thus, each Tuesday I will post a small amount of information about one of the victims, in the hopes that some of you will want to join in on the movement. I will also try to participate and update you each Tuesday to let you know how I’m doing (Knowing my lazy tendencies, I need some accountability here!).

I hope you will join me in this adventure! And if you do, would you please comment below the post for each Tuesday that you “completed your mission.” I don’t need to know what you did–just that you did it (However, if you’d like to share more details, that’s wonderful!). And, here’s why I’d like to know that you participated: Wouldn’t it be fun to count up all of the acts of kindness done because of MIP readers? I promise to keep a tally and also update the tally each week.

Here’s this week’s information from CNN about Charlotte Bacon:

Charlotte Bacon, 6
Charlotte was sweet, outgoing and full of energy, her grandmother told CNN affiliate WCCO in Minnesota. “This is tough. This is surreal. You can’t believe this could happen,” Irene Hagen told the network. “The whole family is just devastated and we’re all trying to come to terms with it.” She said her granddaughter loved school and dresses. Her hair was a mass of beautiful red curls. “It’s horrible. It’s really horrible,” Hagen told WCCO. “It’s hard to believe that someone would kill children, innocent children.”


If you’d like to get ahead of me on this task, here’s the CNN link where you can read about all the victims and see their pictures. Let’s show a 6 year old angel in Heaven what we’re all about here. Are you in?
