Dying Man Spreads Kindness And Inspiration By Giving Away Krispy Kreme Donuts.

Inspiring Others

Chris instructed the kids he met to do random acts of kindness. He said, "If I can't impact people then this whole thing is a waste." His quote was seen on church signs around town and he's purpose and mission inspired others on Facebook.

Even though he had already made plenty of people smile with his acts of kindness, he didn’t stop there because he was determined to spread happiness even further. But this time, instead of passing out delicious treats, Chris handed out something a bit more valuable.

Butterfly Grants

Naming his new initiative “Butterfly Grants,” Chris started handing out fifty-dollar bills to children every time he went somewhere. And after he handed each child a crisp new fifty, he encouraged each one to always live life to the fullest and to use the money to help change the world, just like he was doing.

“Butterfly Grants” became even more successful than the Krispy Kreme deliveries, and before long, the entire nation was hearing about his “Butterfly Grants.” People all over the country took a page from Chris’ book, and teachers began to petition to have the program put into place in their schools.

Change Makers

Dr. Judith Palmer, a major advocate for the program, said: “I believe that most students are thirsty for ways to make a difference in the world. They do see the needs. I have found our students to be socially aware and determined to become change-makers.” And, boy, she couldn’t have been more right.
