Today, Hannah was able to thank the three boys, Bowden, Reed and Will for their act of kindness. The boys and their family stopped by KCBD and toured the station.

Last Thursday, Connie, and Ed Ainsworth decided to take all of their grandkids out and show them the importance of being kind. Each child wrote 3 notes to give to others. The girls went with Connie, and the boys went with Ed. They all went out to do their random acts of kindness and handed out their notes. At the end of the day, they all met up for lunch where they talked about what they did and their favorite part of the day.


Hannah McLeod was on her way back to work when she decided to stop by the Starbucks on 82nd and Quaker just before 11 this morning. When she pulled up to the window to pay, she was told that her coffee had been paid for.

"I was then handed three notes made by three kids. Their grandpa was teaching them about "kindness" today and asked them to all pitch in their piggy bank money to make someone's day," says McLeod.

She said she's getting ready to graduate from Texas Tech this weekend, so this act of kindness made her whole week better.

She believes the notes are signed by Will, Reed, and Bowden. She wanted to tell them the $6 they spent made her whole week better.

"I don't know who they are or where we can get in contact, but I fully believe that they deserve a "thank you" and acknowledgment," Says McLeod, "I think that all of us can be reminded to be kind to others and I think that this is a great way to do so."
