Sometimes we lose our faith in humanity when we learn about violence, hate crimes, murder, rape, and all the other kinds of evil that are happening in this world. It’s all over the news anyway; we see and hear about it everyday. We live in a world where injustice and oppression occur right under our noses and sadly, there are times when we can’t do or won’t do anything about it.
Then comes a story like this- a real-life story that somehow uplifts our spirits, gives us hope, and restores our faith. This is a story about an 8-year old girl named Alex McKelvy and her family.
When Alex’s grandmother passed away two years ago, Alex and her family thought of a way to honor her life. The family decided to complete 60 random acts of kindness until their grandmother’s birthdate, which was last March 22, 2014. But when the family accomplished more than 60 kinds acts, Alex was inspired to continue helping others, with the goal of helping 600 people until her grandmother’s birthday this year.
Alex volunteered to be a part of a non-profit organization that offered shelter and food for the homeless, and she also performed many, simple, kind gestures, which would have made her grandmother very proud.

Well, not THIS centenarian. When I learned about what she did for her 100th birthday, all the “extreme” stuff that I did felt so lame in comparison. Georgina Hardwood celebrated her birthday like no other centenarian can – she went skydiving. Damn, lady!

How do you make a special child feel extra special on his birthday?
