What our Grandchildren learn from us or do in our name often becomes our legacy and for this family, the legacy of their grandma is absolutely beautiful.

Eight year old Alex McKelvey from Washington state began her random acts of kindness in 2013 after losing her grandmother, Linda. Alex and her mother Sarah had planned to complete 60 random acts of kindness by March 22 2014 – what would have been Linda’s 60th birthday.

Once they got there, they decided not to stop and to date, young Alex has performed 487 random acts of kindness and is planning to reach 600 by March 22 2015.

Watch the video below about their beautiful story and tell us, if you could teach your grandchild only one thing, what would it be?
