Hillarys_22_Acts_of_Kindness_listShe’s a nursing major in college so helping people is already on her agenda, but Hillary Sadlon poured on the kindness for others even on a day when she could have been pampering herself.

After seeing someone post online about how they did it, the Seton University senior spent months planning how she could be kind, generous and thoughtful on her upcoming birthday.

She made a giant list and dubbed her scheme, “Hillary’s 22 Random Acts of Kindness for Her 22nd Birthday.”

She told the Setonian school newspaper “I wanted to do something big to show that helping others has a contagious rewarding feeling that comes with it,” S “I wanted to make a difference, even if for one day,” she added.

Among the many good deeds she accomplished, she donated blood, left inspirational notes on cars, weeded her grandmother’s yard, left a gift for the mailman, brought flowers to local nurses and brownies to the neighbors, and brought balloons to a special education class.
