Watching a Domino travel as it inspires person after person to do a Random Act of Kindness, is amazing as it is fun. Inspired by Dakota I sent Domino #3453 out into the world and love seeing the updates. I passed along this domino to a friend, telling her how Dakota’s story had inspired me to take action. My friend, in turn, passed along the domino with Dakota’s story to her friend. Reading about the travels of the domino, show how Dakota’s story is inspiring others to help her reach her goal of 100 Random Acts of Kindness. Here’s hoping that domino keeps up the momentum:
The Travels of Domino #3453
I received the Domino from my coworker who shared the details and story =) Upon receiving it, I invited our neighbor (who recently experienced a difficult breakup) to mass and coffee with my wife and me on a Sunday morning. We talked about the experience and it seemed to be good timing to help lift his spirits!
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 🙂
It was a surprise treat when I received this domino from Storey. We were catching up, sharing what we’re passionate about in our lives and giving each other encouragement for our endeavors. So, when Storey handed me the ” domino” I was excited to share the spirit of random acts of kindness. I thought about what I’d do for some time and then one day In an ” act in the moment” I was reminded of the domino – and of Dakota. I saw a car trying to pull out of the gas station. I waved him on and we had this great exchange of smiles and waves like we were old friends; a nice reminder that we don’t need to be strangers on the road.
I’m excited to be part of Dakota’s Random Acts of Kindness. For this domino I stopped to let a car cross the highway after watching for 5 minutes up the traffic jam that no one was letting them through.
