RAK #29: Jason Benjamin Josaphat

This one was a three birds with one stone (sort of) RAK. This is the twenty-ninth of 49 random acts of kindness 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!

I bought a set of three Starbucks cards, taped them to each of these cards and picked three random vehicles in the Safeway parking lot to leave them on. It was so much fun!

This RAK is in honor of Jason Benjamin Josaphat. He was young – only 19 years old – and known for being soft spoken. He called his mother from the bathroom of the club, where he was hiding from the gunman. Friends and family say his laugh was infectious and unforgettable. Rest in peace, Jason.

RAK #27: Jonathan A. Camuy Vega

This one was a three birds with one stone (sort of) RAK. This is the twenty-seventh of 49 random acts of kindness 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!

His body was found covering that of a young mother, Yilmary Rodriguez Sullivan (she will be RAK #41). He worked for La Voz Kids, a show similar to the Voice. Rest in peace, Jonathan.

RAK #26: Javier Jorge-Reyes

This is the twenty-sixth 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!

Clearly, I have a soft spot for HiCaliber – I did a second donation for them. It breaks my heart every week to see the horses that are so sick and terrified, thrown away at auction.

This RAK is in honor of Javier Jorge-Reyes. He had an infectious smile and worked as a supervisor at Gucci. He was a hard worker and a good friend. Rest in peace, Javier.

For this RAK, I made a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

This is the twenty-forth 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!

This was another fun one – I found an empty spot on the grocery store shelf and left a gift card there!

This RAK is in honor of Oscar A. Aracena-Montero. He was known as a bright, postitive student and was excited about his future goals. Rest in peace, Oscar.

RAK #23: Simon Adrian Carrillo Fernandez

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on these, but I’ve still been working on them. I know it’s been just over a year since the Pulse massacre, but I want to make sure these are meaningful which is why I’m taking my time.

This is the twenty-third 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!

This one is near and dear to my heart – I follow HiCaliber Horse Rescue on Facebook. They loud, proud, and huge-hearted.

This RAK is in honor of Simon Adrian Carrillo Fernandez. He was a sweet man who never missed a birthday, had great leadership style, and was known for his attention to detail. Rest in peace, Simon.
