Sisters carrying out 60 acts of kindness to celebrate their late mum’s 60th birthday
Two sisters are celebrating by what would have been their late mum’s birthday by doing 60 acts of kindness for people in the area.
Demi and Megan Lewis have so far donated items to a local foodbank, collected litter in the rain, left flowers on a stranger’s doorstep, books for children and toys for dogs to play with.
The duo decided to carry out a small act of kindness every day in the run up to what should have been Mum Sue’s 60th birthday on 4 November and in doing so are raising money for Nightingale House Hospice.
Demi and Megan said: “Right about now we should be thinking about what presents we’ll get her, maybe what kind of cake she’ll like and how on earth we’ll sneak the balloons from the car into the house without her seeing.
“Whilst we’ll never again get to do any of those nice little things for her, we can redirect that energy and positivity elsewhere, in her name and memory.
“For the last week we have been carrying out (at least!) one small act of kindness per day and will continue to do so for the remaining days right up to her birthday. Sixty little acts of kindness across 60 days for her 60th birthday.
“We’re hoping that in sharing these gestures they might multiply, with people carrying out their own acts of kindness in our Mum’s or someone else’s memory.
“We’re hoping too that together we can raise some money to support Nightingale House, a charity that means a lot to our family, and many other families too.”
Del Underwood, Nightingale House Hospice’s in Memory Giving Fundraiser said: “This is such a lovely way to celebrate Sue’s life.
“As a Mum we like to think our job is to teach our children well and to think of others at all times.
“I think Sue would be very, very proud of her girls. They are celebrating her life in such a positive way, spreading happiness and kindness along the way.
“Well done Sue – you did your job well. Thank you Demi and Megan for supporting Nightingale House in this way.”
