This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes from 10 year old Alanna Wall, who started an organization called Polished Girlz to serve girls with special needs. She has youth volunteers paint the nails of girls with special needs to not only make them feel beautiful and empowered, but also to remind them to wash their hands to reduce infection rates.
The Polished Girlz serve a variety of communtiy organizations and support groups. It is our goal to “Polish” girls with Special Needs all over the United States and Abroad. We are excited that such a simple act of love can bring such happiness to both the clients that we serve and the youth volunteers that serve them. As an organization, the Polished Girlz seek to empower not only their clients, but their volunteers, by offering them opportunities to improve the quality of life, build invaluable leadership skills, and providing them with opportunities for community service.
How great is this organization? As always, if you have a suggestion for next week’s Random Act of Kid-ness, let us know by commenting on this post!
“Once you begin to acknowledge random acts of kindness – both the ones you have received and the ones you have given – you can no longer believe that what you do does not matter.” -Dawna Markova
