Seffner family using Facebook to spread kindness

Posted: Updated:
SEFFNER (FOX 13) -

A Seffner woman is giving back to the community and encouraging others to do the same on Facebook.

Karla Gibson says she and her sons are participating in "25 Days of Kindness."

The mother of two said she was inspired to pay it forward after a stranger paid for her meal at a fast-food restaurant.

Now, she is performing acts of kindness for her community.

"I'm a single mom and I've got the two kids. I just think it is important for them to see first-hand how other people live," said Gibson. "We could be on the streets as well. I think it is one second away for anyone."

Gibson and her sons, Chad and Kyle, prepared bags filled with snacks for the homeless Friday.

"We've got pretzel crackers, peanut butter crackers, candy cane, a couple mints," Gibson said of the contents.

She said the three will deliver the food, along with a bottled water and information on places where free meals are available in the neighborhood.

In some bags, she included two to three dollars in cash and a lottery ticket.

Each day, Gibson shares her act of kindness on Facebook. Nearly 400 people have joined her growing group from cities around the country.

Her son Kyle says he hopes to see the movement grow.

"Even the little things are really big," he said.
