Day 127: Wore Orange
Today's random act of kindness was done specifically for one of our readers named July A. Emmance, but it also goes for anyone suffering from or who knows someone suffering from leukemia. Last year, July's grandfather passed away from leukemia. It was very hard for her to watch her grandfather go through that, and it is even harder now as she knows a 5 year old boy who is going through the same thing. July notified me of these stories and let me know that orange is the color for leukemia awareness, so today, for my random act of kindness, my daughter and I will wear the color orange. My daughter even went the extra step and got sweet potatoes all over her clothes in order to wear even more orange. I ask that people rock as much orange gear as possible today, and should a stranger stop you and ask you why you have so much orange on, please let them know it is to raise awareness for leukemia. As I type this out, I just realized that I am going to have a new theme week for my random acts. This week, my daughter and I will wear a different color or pattern every day to raise awareness for different causes. Thank you July for the inspiration.
