My sister-in-law has come up with an amazing kindness campaign called Kindness for Kaitlin, for my niece Kaitlin that I would like to share with you. My niece Kaitlin will be turning 18 this coming July, a true milestone event. But this milestone birthday is not being met with joy by my niece. You see, this sweet girl has no friends beyond family. She won’t be having the typical milestone birthday party one would imagine. Kaitlin has William Syndrome but that has not stopped this amazing girl. Her mom, Nicole came up with the idea of a birthday card campaign for Kaitlin to show her how much she is loved and created a Facebook group entitled Kindness for Kaitlin to help in her endeavor.


The hope is that Kaitlin would receive about 100 cards or so just to show Kaitlin how special and loved she is. To our amazement and delight, Kaitlin’s story has been picked-up by CBC News Hamilton. They wrote a lovely article detailing Kaitlin’s story and Nicole’s Card Campaign. (You can read the article Here.)

I have had the honor to watch Kaitlin grow up to the amazing, kind, individual she is today. And I hope she gets a whole bunch of cards from across the globe. Thank you for stopping by and for your kindness.

Take care.
