I can not stress enough how much your participation and support mean to us. As we reflect on Noah’s kindness project this year, the one word that keeps coming to mind is gratitude. Saturday was filled with laughter, smiles and immeasurable joy. At one point during the day when we were at our house working on projects to take to the hospital and to share with homeless people, I stopped for a moment and listened to the laughs, the conversations and happiness that filled our home. I looked into the front room and saw a reflection of a rainbow on our living room wall(we have a rainbow maker 🌈) and I thought... this is all happening because we had to lose you. Saying goodbye to Noah after only 12 days was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do, and if I’m being honest I didn’t think I’d ever experience joy like I did before he passed. And then there was yesterday and so many other days that I have lived since, where life has been so so good. Noah’s kindness project is only possible because of so many of you who help us spread kindness with others.
Thank you to those of you who joined us in sharing kindness in Noah’s memory. Our shirts say “there is no foot too small that it cannot make an imprint on the world” and I believe we are doing that, for no act of kindness big or small is in vain. Our sincere appreciation and eternal gratitude.And now, let the photos tell the story...

And then it was time to go pack meals at Feed My Starving Children.
Jennings first Noah's Kindness Project. He thought it was pretty fun too!
I love the saying on the back of our shirts because it reminds me of Noah but also the fact that our acts of kindness, no matter how big or small, are never wasted. For each act that we share hopefully makes someone else feel better and even if it is just one person, then it was worth it.
Thank you for all of you who made this day so much fun and for sharing kindness far and wide.
We are extremely thankful.
Until next time,
Angie and Jarrett
