More Random Acts of Kindness Inspired by Dakota

Dakota’s story has been spreading! Be sure to check out the Topplers webpage for updates on the Random Acts of Kindness that Dakota has been inspiring. Here are a few more highlights that we’ve seen:

In Denver, campbece just claimed domino 3453.

&lquo; My dear friend, Ashley, gave me Dakota’s domino and explained the program while we were on a beautiful summer hike at Hessey Trailhead. I was really touched and of course wanted to be a part of things. I am so sorry it has taken me so long! I brought the domino and card with me to work last week, thinking it would be a good inspiration to do something on one of my breaks. Today, I was out for a stroll on the 16th street mall. I saw a Denver Voice vendor open the door for a gentleman in a wheelchair leaving a store. I thought this was very sweet and polite of him, so in return for his good deed I bought a paper from him 🙂

In Henderson, Leanne just claimed domino 3377.

&lquo; I received this Domino from Victoria, an amazing friend and someone who knew how much I would love this type of project. I know a young woman who was moving out of her shared apartment to live with her younger sister. Her former roommate had owned most of the household items. She had a bit of furniture but no kitchen items. Her plan was to use her student discount at Goodwill and slowly get what she needed. I texted her one day telling her to meet me at Wal Mart and not to ask any questions. When she arrived, I set her up with a shopping cart and told her to go pick out her new kitchen. She started crying right there in the isle. She was thrilled, as was I to see her so happy and thankful of the gesture. Random acts of kindness warm my heart and soul. Thank you Dakota for inspiring others.

In Louisville, herb  just claimed domino 3449.

&lquo; I’ve been waiting for a moment of inspiration to add a random act to Dakotas branch. I started carrying the domino in my pocket in hopes that it would remind me that all it takes is a quick simple decision to make an impact. Today it wasn’t much: I gave $10 to a guy holding a sign at an intersection. But he definitely appreciated that it wasn’t simply $1. And my daughter got to enjoy the moment with me. More to come but it feels great to be helping Dakota see her big idea becoming a reality.
