Day 353: Skyped With A Classroom

One of the things that I am going to miss most about doing these random acts is the emails that I get from people (well, at least the positive ones).  I have been able to interact with people both abroad and here in the United States due to the blog catching on, and they have shared some of the most heartwarming, inspirational, and sometimes emotional messages.  Early on in this journey, a teacher from the suburbs of Chicago, Dena, reached out to me to say that she was a fan of my random acts.  Since then I have kept in sporadic touch with her, and recently, she asked if I would do a random act for her class.  She is a HUGE fan of random acts in general, and was going to read a holiday random acts story to her classroom.  Instead of her reading it, though, she asked if I could be the one to read it to her class and then interact with them for a bit.  Because of my hectic work schedule, I wasn't going to be able to make it out to the suburbs, but I knew that I still wanted to help.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I Skyped with her classroom and read the story Silver Packages.  The kids and I then talked about random acts that they had planned for the holiday season and asked me a bunch of great questions.  These are the types of interactions that I absolutely love and it will be tough to give up.  Hmmm, maybe I need to think about January 1st a little more...


  1. Inspired concept. Inspiration to others. Keep it going, man!

  2. Please don't stop while you have the energy to keep going, there are too few people who inspire in such a positive way.

  3. Keep her coming! Don't stop the talking! NEVER STOP :D
