No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted – Aesop

In Ellie’s eulogy, the community was called upon to honor Ellie’s memory by doing at least one thing they’ve never done before to make the world a more beautiful place. Loved ones were asked to consider volunteering somewhere new, donating to a cause that is special to them, or paying it forward to a complete stranger.

If you are the giver or receiver of a random act of kindness that moved you, post your story in the comments below, to our Facebook page, or share it on Twitter or Instagram usingthe hashtag #ForEllie.
