An URGENT Message from my Mom

Hi Guys!,

As you know, it’s Lynsey’s 26th birthday on Tuesday (tomorrow)… and as you ALSO know, since she’s not feeling up for it this year because of the chemo, we’re all striving to do acts of kindness on her behalf to make it “26(acts of kindness) for 26(years)”!

Well this is all well and good, but I decided as one of MY acts of kindness to “up the ante” on this plan… Instead of 26 for 26, I’d like to put out the challenge to everyone to make it TEN TIMES that number!

That’s right… 260 random acts of kindness to be completed on Lynsey’s birthday, October 28th (or close to it at least)!

To make this happen, I’m asking for your help. Here’s what I’m hoping you can do…

1) Complete (at least) one random act of kindness yourself that day. (You’ve already done THIS part with our dinner date!!)

2) Ask TWO friends or family members to also complete an act of kindness that day, and request that THEY in turn, ask 2 of THEIR friends/family to do the same.

3) Email either Lynsey OR me to let us know what you and your friends/family are planning to do that day so we can keep track of how many participate.
Here’s Lynsey’s address–> lynsey.hodgson@gmail.com Here’s mine–> mnairn@uoguelph.ca

Acts of kindness can be as simple as donating clothing to a local charity or buying a coffee for a stranger – OR they can be as big as you like!!
Kindness comes in ALL sizes!

And please don’t feel limited to just ONE act of kindness …or to only inviting TWO other people to participate! Feel free to inspire as many others as possible to get involved on Tuesday in celebration of Lynsey – just let us know how many are participating and what kindness(es) they complete, so we can keep track and hopefully meet my MUCH-WISHED-FOR goal of “10 times 26” acts of kindness!

Who knows… maybe before long, “random acts of kindness” won’t be random anymore, they will just be what we ALL do EVERY day!

Many thanks for anything you can do to participate with some selfless acts of kindness for others – and a happy birthday for Lynsey.

cheers for now,
– Mary

Email me at lynsey.hodgson@gmail.com if you are interested in purchasing one. They are beautiful!

Love for Lynsey

Last Friday Bryan, Martha, Laura and my Cutten family hosted an amazing fundraising event (“Love for Lynsey”) at the club. It was a spectacular evening filled with such support, laughter, and fun! The food and beverage team did an amazing job with amazing service and out of this world food for the 300 guests we had in attendance. Thank you to everyone who helped organize the night, worked, and volunteered their time. Thank you as well to all the donors and sponsors.

Yesterday I started off the Thanksgiving way in an amazing way, receiving a cheque for over $28,000 with the proceeds from the event. I am so thankfully this weekend, and always, for my amazing support system. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

Happy Thanksgiving All!

26 for 26

Hello Friends!

I just wanted to remind you about my plans for my birthday this year. Last year I did, with the support of many of my friends, 25 acts of kindness on my birthday. This year I would like to have 26 people help me do 26 acts of kindness on (or around) my birthday to help me celebrate. My birthday is October 28. So far I have 13 people who are on board. I would LOVE to get 26 people to participate. Please e-mail me if you are able to help me celebrate. The act of kindness can be anything from donating clothing, money, blood, to telling a friend how much they mean to you. It can be as small or as big as you like. Here is a list of who is participating and what they are doing. E-mail me at lynsey.hodgson@gmail.com if you would like to participate!

  2. Jenna L: Hair Donation
  3. Dianna L: TBA
  4. Cody Ra: Flowers to his teachers
  5. Knox Retreat Ladies: Donate food to Chalmers Food Cupboard
  6. Jennifer M: Special surprise for a dear friend
