KELOLAND Man Receives Anonymous Gift

December 22, 2012, 9:45 PM by Hailey Higgins

KELOLAND Man Receives Anonymous Gift
HARRISBURG, SD -

The 26 acts of kindness campaign kicked off on social media over the last week and is making it's way across the globe.

It was cold Saturday morning at 6 a.m. when Trooper Chris Hogan went to go to work, but a present left by a complete stranger warmed his heart.

"Pretty sneaky, they came in the middle of the night like and elf or Santa," Hogan said.

The gift, containing coffee and cookies had a note attached that said:
To honor the 26 people who died in Newtown, CT, my family is doing 26 acts of kindness. You are number 17.

"I didn't think it was something that I deserved, it was a special surprise and it certainly lifted my morning and put a smile on my face," Hogan said.

The package is part of a world-wide kindness movement that is being spurred on by social media. Until Saturday, Hogan had never heard of it, but he plans to pay it forward.

"These acts of kindness are contagious and I definitely want to take the opportunity to give to somebody else like somebody did to me today," Hogan said.

The family says they don't have a clue who might have made the kind gesture. But to whoever did it, Hogan says thank you not only for the gift, but for recognizing the people who died by putting a smile on a stranger's face without getting recognition.
