Not Just for Kicks
A Simple Act of Kindness Makes a Huge Difference

James Jardin from Store 2702 in Nixa, Missouri, wasn’t expecting any fanfare when he made sure a little girl got the shoes she desperately needed after growing out of the pair she was wearing. He even got her another pair of kicks to grow into! 

But his act of kindness went viral in April when the Discovery Center of Springfield shared a simple post on their Facebook page – and then, he got a shoutout from Doug!


Hear James’s story in his own words:  

And the story doesn’t end there. When the Walmart Foundation heard about James’s good deed, they donated $5,000 to the Discovery Center of Springfield’s crisis daycare center!  


Even the smallest acts of kindness can make a big difference, creating a ripple effect of good.

As James said: “If you do good things, good things will come out of it.”
