Please help me put my gratitude into action by doing 30 acts of kindness to celebrate my 30th birthday.
My 20s were ending, and I was filled with anxiety.
I was supposed to have everything figured out by 30, but I wasn’t even close.
So to deal with my anxiety, I started to write down everything I was thankful for - family, friends, education, career.
By expressing my gratitude, I realized that every good thing that happened to me was helped by the support and generosity of others.
So I decided to put my gratitude into action by doing 30 acts of kindness to celebrate my 30th birthday.
And who better to show my appreciation than essential workers? They have gone above and beyond to keep our communities moving during these difficult times.
Yet, essential workers are often overlooked and underappreciated.
So rather than helping one person at a time, I wanted to see how many I could impact with one act of kindness at a time. So here’s what I’ve been able to do:
Raised over $12,000 worth of school supplies from 18 companies to make supply kits for 150 middle school teachers in Oakland, CA. (ABC7 News)
Made 400 flan desserts with ingredients donated by a grocery delivery startup and delivered them to 32 fire stations for firefighters in San Jose, CA. (NBC Bay Area)
Raised over $18,000 worth of self-care products from 14 companies to make care boxes for 118 animal shelter workers in San Francisco, CA. (KRON4)
Raised almost $10,000 worth of healthy snacks from 9 companies to make snack boxes for 150 Paramedics and EMTs in San Francisco, CA. (video)
But there’s a problem. I’ve learned I can’t complete this mission alone.
I realized I could have a more significant impact by including others in this journey. As they say, “if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
So I want to invite you on this journey.
By making a donation today, we can create a ripple effect and impact hundreds of essential workers. They’ve been there for us, and now it’s our turn to be there for them.
Between my personal savings and company donations, over $40,000 has been given to help almost 1000 essential workers. This certainly wasn’t an easy task, and I would appreciate any support I can get to continue this momentum.
Based on our current efforts, $50,000 or more would go a long way toward completing this mission. If you have it in your heart to help people like, Nurses, Veterans, Paramedics, and Social Workers, your donation will be greatly appreciated!
Since I want to include as many people as possible, I have partnered with a local videographer to capture the journey as it unfolds. Not only will your money create a meaningful impact, but you will be able to see your donation come to life.
Ultimately, the bigger the act, the bigger the impact on those who need it and those who give.
Thank you, and together we can make our communities a better place - one kind act at a time!
