This is the thirty-ninth of 49 random acts of kindness (RAKs) that I’m doing to honor the victims of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting. Hopefully each small act puts a little bit of happiness back out in the world!
My college roommate is doing something very cool – for the 3rd year in a row. In her own words:
The season to give is right around the corner and I’m ready to continue our tradition with my kids! Every year, I put together Blessing Bags to donate to the NICU at UCSD. Please consider a $35 donation to sponsor a woman. (As an employee at UCSD in lab who works closely with the NICU, I would like to donate to the Moms who have babies in the NICU this holiday season to help bring a smile to their face). The bags would include M3Z spray and Soul (to help with anxiety and sleep), manicure items to help cheer them up, a card with their sponsor’s name and well wishes, and some other fun things to help them through their most trying days. Please let me know if you would like to sponsor a NICU Mom this holiday season.
If you’re interested in helping out, please let me know and I’ll connect you!
This RAK is in honor of Rodolfo Ayala-Ayala who was 33 and a native of Puerto Rico. He was known for his spirit around the office – always dancing and making everyone around him happy. Rest in peace Rodolfo.
