A Better Region 8: A very special GR8 Act of Kindness this Thursday at 10

For over a year now, we've partnered with First Community Bank for a campaign called GR8 Acts of Kindness which shines a spotlight on folks right here in Region 8. These people go out of their way to help others.

We've seen a lot of worthy recipients receive recognition.

One of my favorite aspects is the fact that these people are nominated by the people they've helped.

Which leads me to a very special GR8 Act of Kindness. Our committee came together and all agreed that one nomination letter stood out from the rest.

Little did we know at the time that the person who wrote it had passed away.

We also came to find out that it was the last thing he had ever written.

This Thursday, our own Diana Davis shows us the most emotional and surprising story we've done yet. It's a story that reminds us all that a small gesture can have a big impact on the people around us and how powerful one’s last wish or action can truly be.

So, if you haven't already, take a moment to nominate someone for the next GR8 Act of Kindness and tune in this Thursday on Region 8 News at 10.

Being selfless, taking the time to recognize those who are kind, and stopping to say thank you makes this A Better Region 8.
