Lucy Goose Weber

i didnt know Lucy. However I did hear some pretty amazing things about her. She was a very strong little kiddo who left this world way too early. This is something that my wife recieved and passed it along to me. We will be doing this in honor of Lucy. I think the paying if forward is an excellent idea. To do it in honor of this little girl is something pretty amazing. Thank you to all that will participate and especially to who thought of this great idea.

As you may know, Lucy Weber's 2nd birthday is coming up on June 8, and we would like to honor her in a way that reflects what Lucy did so well, which was bringing out the kindness, compassion, and generosity in people.

One of the things we were constantly amazed at throughout Lucy's journey was how she brought people together that would have never crossed paths had it not been for her and how, after hearing her story or meeting her, people were compelled to go out of their way to do nice things for each other. All of us who were close to Lucy want to make sure her legacy continues, so we are marking her birthday, June 8, as the first annual Lucy's Legacy Day. The idea is basically a "pay it forward" or "random acts of kindness" day. Perhaps you know of someone struggling with an illness in their family or dealing with another type of unfortunate circumstance, and they can be the recipient of your generosity. Maybe there is a neighbor who needs assistance you can offer. Certainly there is someone whose day you could brighten simply with a note or phone call letting them know you are thinking about them. The most impactful acts of kindness may actually be those directed toward a total stranger!

All you need to do to is print a sheet of Lucy's Legacy cards (attached to this email and also available on Lucy's CaringBridge site and the Team Lucy Facebook page), keep them in your purse or wallet, and when you think of Lucy, do something nice for someone and hand them a card. Chances are, the recipient will be compelled to pass along the kindness - and the card! We also encourage you to share your experiences on the Team Lucy Facebook page - it will be fun to see how far we can get this goodwill to spread! Let's celebrate Lucy's birthday by getting tons of cards circulating and making the world a little bit happier in the process.

The first thing you can do to help is SPREAD THE WORD! Please forward this on!

Happy Birthday, Lucy Goose! We hope to make you proud!

these are the cards to hand out to help with the process of paying it forward. Please feel free to print and honor  Lucy
