_My name is Alyssa Gaibler and I am in Kindergarten at Bonny Slope Elementary School.  After reading your kindness cards I decided to write a thank you letter to one of my favorite businesses, Donuts Plus, a donut shop in Portland.  I chose that store because I really like donuts.  My favorite donut is the kind with chocolate frosting and sprinkles.  My Daddy and Beach Grandpa (we call him that because he lives at the beach) have been going to Donuts Plus since I was a baby.  My Beach Grandpa REALLY loves donuts and buys some every time he comes to visit.  The Donut Lady always asks us how Beach Grandpa is doing whenever we visit her shop without him.  Last time Beach Grandpa went in to buy donuts she showed him the letter I wrote to her.  She had it taped up on the wall!  The Donut Lady is always happy to see us and she even gives us free donut holes.  She also has the same birthday as Noah, my three year old brother. 
Your Friend, Alyssa
PS – We don’t know the Donut Lady’s real name, so we just call her the Donut Lady.

    I am the teacher of the kids in the "Kindness Kards" class.  I came up with the  Kindness Kards idea so my students could learn about paying it forward with an act of kindness.  Our class motto is, "Be Wise, Be Kind, Be True" and I feel it's so important for my students to learn about helping others.  We call it "heart work."  They have loved this project and we look forward to hearing who received our cards!
