Capp Kindness Day

The Capp Kindness Project Monday was amazing!! It made me SO happy seeing all the posts of people doing acts of kindness in Matt's name every time I got on Facebook. My heart was just overflowing.

Here are some of the things I did on Capp Kindness Day:

Taped some goodies to a Redbox machine

Made an Operation Christmas Child box
 Taped a gift card to shopping cart
 Left some goodies and a gift card for the mail person
Made a  donation to brain cancer in memory of Matt
 Made blessing bags for the homeless with Katrina
Bought a pizza for someone 
 Paid for the order behind me at the drive-through
 Left quarters on gumball machines

And here are just a few pictures of some of the posts from around the country of people doing their acts of kindness:

I have to thank Katrina for coming up with such an amazing way to honor Matt on his birthday. I have to give her the credit-I just helped take it to a larger platform. She surely has a heart of gold(I mean, she gave away her CAR, y'all!). I am thankful to now have her as a friend in my life. I am thankful for the impact Matt made on her and for the work God is doing in and through her partly because of that impact. I am thankful to her for letting me vent and talk about Matt sometimes past midnight, and for her always having the perfect words to say, without trying to "fix" it or cheer me up.

I also want to thank each and every one of you who participated yesterday. I didn't know if people would jump on board or not, but the #CappKindnessProject far exceeded my expectations. Matt would have been so honored and humbled, and I know he would be smiling that big smile of his seeing all the posts. You all have NO idea how much it meant to me. It was truly what I needed after the crappy last couple of weeks I had. I’m not even a hugger, and I want to hug every single person who participated!

This WILL be an annual event, so you have a whole year to be thinking about what you want to do next year! But I also hope this was a reminder to us all to be kind and to find ways to help and spread love to those around us in little ways every single day. It's so easy to get caught up in our own lives and struggles and problems, but there's something about stepping outside of our little bubbles every now and then to help someone else that is just good for the soul-God made us that way! We may not be able to change the world, but one small act of kindness could quite possibly change someone's life. And that matters. Be the light y'all.
