Hello, we're the Hestons.

Like so many of our neighbors, we wanted to do something positive in response to the Pulse tragedy ... For some good to come of this senseless violence. Here is how we choose to respond: for every life cut short by hate, our family will share an act of lovingkindness with our community this summer.

With each "kindness opportunity," we honor one of the individuals taken from our community. We hope that in this small way, we're bringing a smile to those who knew them, or maybe even inspiring others to share their love with the world.

With each donation or project, we find that we get so much more than we give. Along the way, our family is learning, having fun together and making connections that brings us as much joy as those we serve.

Here's the main thing we've learned: kindness opportunities are around every corner. Share the kindness, share the love.
