As we head into full-blown holiday mode here in the United States, we like to think about what we are grateful for in our Random Acts family. When we hit December, we are apt to think more on this family and the commonality that brings us together. Our desire to improve the world one random act at a time, through the little ways and also the larger ones, unite us in a very special way. Working here, you meet an amazing group of people.

In that vein, we would like to give a special thank you to Random Acts board member Genevieve Padalecki. She is an inspiration to all of us here on the staff, as a perfect image of positivity and kindness that comes through in her blogs and in her daily life. Whether she is advocating for sustainability or getting drenched in the rain as she joins a women’s march, she is generous with her time and influence.

We are very grateful to be recipients of her efforts through her generous donations. We appreciate her work with Grove and First Aid Beauty, where  proceeds went to Random Acts to fund acts of kindness. She has supported numerous projects and helped countless people.

May all of her good work come back to her ten fold. Thank you, Genevieve!
