      Perform acts of kindness for 26 Sandy Hook victims


      The Sandy Hook Elementary shooting was senseless in every way imaginable, but out of each horror, we often see human spirit that overshadows any evil.


      When it became known that people were performing 26 random acts of kindness in honor of the 26 Sandy Hook victims, NewsChannel 15 decided to share the effort with our community.


      With only 30 minutes of preparation, four hours of footwork and nearly $80, our task was complete.


      The 26 Acts:


      1. Give flowers to a stranger


      2. Place a dollar bill on a vending machine to buy someone a drink


      3. Buy coffee for someone


      4. Give someone a break at work


      5. Sing Christmas Carols


      6. Help a kid learn how to ride a bike


      7. Give someone a random Christmas card


      8. Pay for someone's gas


      9. Help someone with a gift idea


      10. Pay for someone's meal behind you at the drive thru


      11. Leave $5 on a random person's car


      12. Help someone with their groceries


      13. Give a meal to the needy


      14. Make a donation to charity


      15. Walk someone's dog


      16. Pass out candy canes to strangers


      17. Do a chore for someone


      18. Write a note to a troop overseas


      19. Bring lunch to firefighters


      20. Hold the door open for someone


      21. Pick up something that someone has dropped by mistake


      22. Give a random person a hug


      23. Thank a veteran


      24. Pay off someone's layaway


      25. Deliver donated toys to needy children


      26. Give donuts to police officers




      During this mission, we started to see acts of kindness that people were doing for us - just as random but without the cameras.


      Those are the true heroes we all should aspire to be.
