Great-Grandmother Inspires 18-Year-Old to Perform Random Acts of Kindness
Thereâs no right way for getting over the death of a loved one, but Samantha Mannsâ method may be the most inspiring.
The 18-year-old from Chillicothe, Ohio is honoring her late great-grandmother by doing 89 random acts of kindness. Why 89? Thatâs how old grams was when she passed away last month.
When Virginia Booth died, she probably had no idea she would leave such a heartwarming legacy, but Manns felt compelled to do something:
Some of her last words were, âI donât want anybody to be upset.â And I was really upset for a few days. Then I thought, âMaybe I canât be happy right now, but I can do things to make other people happy.ââ
Manns has already begun her quest. Her first act was paying it forward by buying a meal for the car behind her at a McDonaldâs drive-thru. Sheâs also set up a Facebook page so people can follow her exploits.
Here’s hoping Samantha reaches her goal and maybe even goes beyond it!
