No one likes being in the spotlight when doing something kind for others. In fact, most people shy away from boasting about it because they think it should be done in silence. In Atascosa County, however, performing random acts of kindness or being kind in general out loud is highly encouraged and supported when done to remember two kindhearted children, Madison and Tanner McCleary. The Pleasanton Express is encouraging everyone in our community to show love this February by performing an act of kindness with the #SpreadKindnessforMandT.

Audrey McCleary, mother of Madison and Tanner, stopped by the Pleasanton Express office on Tuesday afternoon to drop off a tub full of brand new #spreadkindnessforMandT bracelets with a secret message on the inside. Please stop by to pick one up from our office.

While here, Audrey shared a story of kindness being spread in honor of Madison and Tanner that occurred at College Station ISD. “I received a text message with a picture of a check saying the lunch bills of 51 students at Bryan-College Station were paid for in honor of #spreadkindnessfor- MandT.” The check total was amounted to $426.44.

Go out and be kind in the loudest way possible to honor the lives of two loving and kind children from our community. We want to see and hear about your kindness stories and actions this month! When doing so, we ask that you share your experiences on social media using #spreadkindnessforMandT.

For those of you who do not do social media, please email me at rpesqueda@pleasantonexpress.com or give me a call at the office. I will share your story with Audrey and Kevin McCleary, parents to Madison and Tanner, then share them to our Facebook page.

Please look for future stories throughout the month of February about Madison and Tanner Mc- Cleary in the Pleasanton Express.
