In the wake of last week’s horrific and devastating events in Connecticut, I feel more and more convicted in my quest to promote kindness. My heart, like that of yours, is broken. And all I want is to scoop up the whole world and care for it. Show it love. Show it that kindness and peace are the only way. I want everyone to be okay.
But that’s impossible, I understand. And so, for now, I will continue this project, and I will continue to be inspired by each of you who pass by my way to share a word, a mission, an act of kindness, a story that brings hope to our dark and broken country and world.
Thank you for actively choosing peace.

Ever heard of “25 Days of Christmas”? I decided that my first mission will be called “25 Gifts Before the New Year”. Life is so stressful this time of the year. I aimed for my cards to help people relax and have fun during their holiday season. Here is part one of the mission:
Mission: 25 Gifts Before the New Year, Part I
For the first part of the mission, I bought a pack of blank cards with two cats hugging on the front. Aren’t they cute?
Then, I purchased five $5 Starbucks gift cards and one Starbucks VIA sample pack. Other supplies included quotable pictures (thanks to Pinterest) and some cash.
I included pictures of some of the cards and my first 8 envelopes, ready to be hidden. Five of the little envelopes have the gift cards, two of the little envelopes have cash, and the big envelope has the VIA sample pack.
Location #1: The Galleria, Mt. Lebanon PA, 12/7/12
I left three at and around the Galleria. Each contained a card and a Starbucks gift card. One was left in a bathroom stall, one in an elevator, and one on a car windshield. Pictures are attached.
Location #2: Office building, Mt. Lebanon Blvd, Mt. Lebanon PA, 12/11/12
Unfortunately I forgot my phone, so I don’t have any pictures of this part of the mission. I left three envelopes containing a card and a Starbucks gift card in the two stairways in the building. One was on a windowsill and two were taped to door handles.
Location #3: California University of Pennsylvania, California PA, 12/11/12
An envelope containing $2 and a note saying “have a treat on me” was taped to a vending machine in the Frich biology building, first floor. Another envelope with $5 and a card was left on a random car in the Vulcan Parking Garage. A picture of the vending machine is attached. Unfortunately, iPhone cameras are difficult to operate when your hands are frozen… so I don’t have a picture of that part of the mission either.
