When bringing things back to the McComas after Gobblerfest, a few items fell out of the boxes we were carrying. Ushan Abeysekera was passing by at the time and did not hesitate to jump right in to help us out. Thank you for taking the extra few minutes to help out your fellow Hokies!

My favorite animal has always been a pig. When Patrick found out how much I loved them, he offered to take my friend and me to a pig farm! After the first visit he actually asked permission of the barn managers to see if we could go back and hold the baby pigs. Thank you, Patrick, for taking time out of your day to actively care by helping me fulfill a dream that I have had since the last time I held a pig (over 10 years ago).

One night after RA training...I ran into my friend Adam. He had a long, grueling day of OChem finals and had missed our RA dinner. He was tired and hungry and so I gave him one of my bagels/bananas/peanut butter to nom on. It was great to talk and catch up, and a week or so later he surprised me with a AC4P bracelet. It's funny how important that little green plastic has meant to me, and I intend on making another deserving individual just as happy. Thank you Adam...and thank you AC4P!

I am a new employee in the psychology department at VT. Dr. Scott Geller gave me this wrist band for my project of creating a directory of faculty staff and grad students for incoming students to familiarize them with the staff here. Dr. Geller shared this amazing idea with me and I loved it!

I was socializing in my old office suite when I received a warm greeting and hug my a new friend named Gabby. Gabby and I had met once before, but we had never really engaged in actual conversation. With my goal of meeting one new person everyday, Gabby's warm demeanor, outgoing personality, and bubbly disposition made me feel very comfortable learning about her and sharing about me. Gabby clearly values making those around her comfortable, being open and approachable, and taking the time to learn about others, and in turn helping others learn about her. For making my day and making my act of "the one new person I met today" extremely memorable, I shared Actively Wristband number 55839 with Gabby.

I was at a halt on putting the finishing touches on my new office and I had some things that needed to be hung. I use a wheelchair to get around because cannot stand or walk and I had not had a free moment to ask another co-worker in the office to hang a bulletin board and a few other things on the walls for me. Two of my co-workers, Jonathan and Annie, stopped by to help me hang them without even asking. They even made a make-shift level out of a ruler - it was quite impressive. I am very grateful for their actively caring actions!

Virginia Tech has a late night dinning facility called DX. Anyone who has bought food there late night has most likely had some type of interaction with a woman who works there named Anne. Anne is so sweet every time I go to DX. Not matter what time of the day or night, sober, or intoxicated, she is so kind to every student who walks through the door. On Friday night she asked me how my night had been and expressed genuine interest. I have thought about giving her a wristband in the past, but that night was special to me. I hope she reads this and realizes how much her kindness brightens my day/ night every time we chat. Thank you Anne, you make the Hokie Nation better!
