9-Year-Old Girl Starts Kindness Movement to Spread Love and Joy
[Aug. 6, 2020: Better Homes & Gardens]
Jaclyn’s mom Allie Gomez says she hopes the group will inspire others. “We are beyond proud of Jaclyn for not only coming up with this Love Project all on her own but for putting this project into action,” Gomez said. “She is one little determined young girl. She truly hopes that her Love Project will inspire other kiddos out there to go out and make a difference and spread love.”
Since she started the Facebook group a few months ago, the response from others has been overwhelmingly positive. “We were not sure how it would all come together and how others would react, but the response has been incredible and such a beautiful moment to witness,” she says.

“Jaclyn has always been the sweet shy girl with a gentle soul. She also was more of an introvert,” Gomez explains. “Throughout the adventure of her Love Project she has completely stepped out of her comfort zone. Going up to strangers to not only give them a love gift but also interact with them has brought out a whole new level of positivity and confidence with self-esteem.”
Last week, a local news station awarded Jacklyn with an award called Shine A Light, which honors those doing good things in their communities. Jaclyn is the first child recipient of the award.
