Act Of Kindness Act Of Kindness: Kindess is Magic- Fun Fair was a success and raised a lot of money for the Lyncourt PTO. LyncourtPTO22/23. The Hall family (their daughter Azzy is fighting leukemia) will be presented with $752.40 with $500 donated by Jayden Laing. Stephanie Vanhoover won the Xbox console and immediately presented it to Jayden for his generous donation. You may be wondering how a 6th grader comes up with $500? He wanted to donate $50 to the Hall Family and his mom posted on social media that she was proud of Jayden. Many friends asked if they could also chip in, and they let them know that donations were going to be accepted at the Fun Fair. It was a heartwarming moment to witness! Thank you Jayden for your generosity and thoughtfulness.
