When the Oasis Christian Church in Pueblo West encouraged its members to do 26 acts of kindness in memory of the Sandy Hook victims, one family knew exactly what they wanted to do.
Jennifer Garcia's son, Andre, has leukemia.
They know what it's like to be in and out of the hospital.
He's been in treatment for six years, so he wanted to stick money on the ER vending machines at Parkview in Pueblo West.
When he was too sick to make it there, his mother still did it for him.
"Especially on Christmas," said Garcia. "That's terrible to have to be in the hospital on Christmas and be hungry or thirsty and not have any change."
They hope small acts of kindness will start a chain reaction in the community.
