Cape Coral resident Leigh Clark does random acts of kindness all the time as her hobby, and her mission has gone national on network television.
“My hobby is just giving back,” Clark said. “I have a full-time job, I’m in software sales, and then this is my passion project. I also have a young son.”
She says it doesn’t take much to make someone’s day. “Handing out lottery tickets to strangers that’s always fun,” she said. “Leaving quarters at a laundromat in a jar that says ‘take what you need’.”
She started this seven years ago after she went through a tough personal time. As an artist, she started making paintings and sold them. That money went toward random acts of kindness. That’s how her nonprofit, Kindleigh, was born .
“When we do these different types of projects, we put them out to the community,” she said. “I have people around Cape Coral and Southwest Florida who will get involved in different things we do.”
She also leads the kindness community that has 4,000 members nationally.
“Even if my reach is slightly significant, its a positive impact on a world that needs it and that’s really what drives me.”
