Ella Loves Random Acts of Kindness

Spreading kindness comes easy for Ella Dubois. At 8 years old, Ella is not afraid to go out of her way to perform random acts of kindness. Having lost her baby brother when she was just 3 years old, Ella and her family have had trying times of their own. Not letting this tragedy keep her down, Ella was inspired to always make others smile. At school, Ella is a friend to all regardless of their background. She is often caught taping dollar bills to the staff vending machine with notes that read, “Have a treat on me.” This past Christmas, Ella took it upon herself to become a “Christmas Angel” for a less fortunate classmate. With the help of her mother and teacher, Ella purchased several gifts and hid them in the student’s backpack before they could notice; not to receive credit for her actions, but to simply brighten the holiday season for her classmate.

“Ella is a kind-hearted, empathetic, and compassionate leader who I believe will move mountains one day,” said Ella’s teacher. On top of her random acts of kindness, Ella also enjoys raising money for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, American Heart Association, and the American Cancer Society. Ella shows us that it doesn’t take much to have a positive impact on those around us. Because of her compassion for others, Ella was chosen as a 2019 Northeast Credit Union Nice Catch winner.
