Hi!

Welcome to the 49 for 49 blog. Check out the kindness projects we've done to honor the Pulse shooting victims.

For Stanley, we brought restaurant gift cards to The Center Orlando to help fill an urgent need for the families and friends of Pulse shooting victims and survivors. In the days following the shooting, family members and friends were arriving in Orlando to comfort their loved ones, or sadly, help arrange funerals.

The kids and I had never visited The Center before and didn't know what to expect. We were warmly welcomed, thanked and invited to sign a banner of support. I'll always remember what the kids wrote. Brock: "Love will overcome fear." Molly: "We love you so much and we are so sorry."

Later that afternoon we attended the OneOrlando candlelight vigil and saw this beautiful rainbow. A day of hope after a week of sorrow.
