Samantha Laycock is committed to brightening the lives of Airdrie moms one by one.
The owner of BeYOUtiful Box, which provides monthly subscription boxes to women to promote self love, has touched the lives of many by leaving little packages on the cars of random moms around Airdrie as a way of spreading sunshine.
She and her children, ages 10, six and one, also do random acts of kindness such as leaving candy canes on vehicles in parking lots and taking snacks to Airdrie firefighters, RCMP members and staff at Urgent Care.
Laycock is motivated by the grateful smiles and positive feedback she receives.
She is also passionate about teaching her children that their kindness can make a difference in people’s lives, even those they may not know.
“We all need a smile,” says Laycock. “We all have those very rough days when nothing goes right. It is nice to know that you can make [people] happy and give back to your community with simple acts.”
Ashton Bennett is impressed by Laycock’s ongoing dedication to reaching out the community.
“[Laycock] has experienced personal trauma in her life, and, instead of letting it define her, she has chosen to use it to help others who may have suffered the same things,” says Bennett.
