REPLAY: On the first day of Christmas, we surprise the Schell family with a truly moving gift

This year's 12 Days of Christmas kicks off with a helping gift for a local family 

SooToday's 12 Days of Christmas Random Acts of Kindness program is back! 

This year's surprises will look a bit different as we carefully respect all COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines. 

This means there won't be any hugs this year, but there are still plenty of happy tears!

We knew this year in particular it was especially important to continue to deliver on our mission to spread joy to community members during the holiday season.

Many families have experienced immense loss in 2020.

The Schell family is among them.

Tim Schell unexpectedly passed away recently, leaving his wife and children heartbroken. 

This will be their first Christmas without Tim, so we wanted to try to brighten their holiday season any way we could. 

Watch as we surprise the Schell family. 

A big thank you to our generous sponsors for this Random Acts of Kindness: An anonymous local businessperson, Ohana Yard Maintenance, and OC Hair, Bath & Body Co.

Thank you as well to OC, Hair, Bath & Body Co. for providing safety items for our video team including sanitizer and face shields.
