- Kindness Card Stories
On January 4, 2005, Sandy and Glenn Rosati lost their most precious gift from God, their beautiful daughter Shyann. Shyann touched many hearts in her short life.
At Shyann's Celebration of Life Service, cards were handed out with Shyann's picture, asking that a random act of kindness be performed in her honor, with the recipient being given the card and asked to pass on a kindness and the card. Since Shyann's death, many people have been inspired to perform acts of kindness in her memory.
In December 2005, a friend of the Rosati family performed an act of kindness in Shyann's honor by wrapping up packages of coloring books, crayons, stickers and books, each with a kindness card attached to it.
She brought them to the children's emergency room at a local hospital, where they were distributed to the children who came in on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Shyann's parents, Sandy and Glenn Rosati, founded The Shyann Kindness Project in April 2006 to carry on this wonderful way of spreading kindness.
The mission of The Shyann Kindness Project is to serve and put smiles on the faces of underprivileged, at-risk, and medically fragile children by providing fun and needed gifts while promoting and teaching kindness and acceptance of all people.
The Shyann Kindness Project is a 100% volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has served more than 20,000 underpriviledged and/or medically fragile children since April 2006.
