8 Year-Old Girl Honors Her Grandmother With 600 Acts Of Kindness In One Year
April 8, 2015
The parents of 8-year-old Alex McKelvey, of Lakewood, Washington, could not be more proud. Alex has completed her 600th act of kindness in honor of her grandmother.
Her mom shared the above photo on Instagram with this caption:
"WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!! It's been an incredibly busy day, but it was well worth it!! For Alex's 600th act of kindness Alex made over the youth center of her local YMCA including brand new paint on the walls, pictures, television/blu ray player, gaming tables, and board games!!! Happy 600th Act of Kindness my sweet, precious, beautiful baby girl."
The project began in September 2013, when Alex's grandmother passed away. To honor her life, Alex and her family vowed to complete 60 acts of kindness by what would have been her grandmother's 60th birthday on March 22, 2014, The News Tribune reported.
When she met that goal last year, Alex raised the bar and aimed to complete 600 acts of kindness by the same date in 2015.
"I picked 600 because it was 10 times more than 60," said Alex. "And we're not going to stop there. We're going to do thousands, then a million. I'd like to reach so many people."
