Chip and Joanna Gaines are no strangers to random acts of kindness. But fan Elyssa Snider was in for the surprise of a lifetime when a casual Tweet from Target led to a shopping spree compliments of Chip Gaines himself!
There’s no question that God has blessed Chip and Joanna Gaines greatly. But with 5 kids and multiple businesses, it’s a wonder they have time to brush their teeth, let alone surprise unsuspecting fans with random acts of kindness.
But, of course, this precious couple never falls short of generosity!
Big or small, spreading kindness is par for the course for Chip and Joanna Gaines.
In fact, Chip Gaines even challenged the Magnolia company, as well as fans, to intentionally spread kindness by creating flyers made up of random acts of kindness anyone can do.
I challenged our people here at @magnolia to make kindness loud, and I'm asking y'all to do the same. Kindness is contagious, and it's time we ALL change the conversation. You can read more about it here: https://t.co/kKZgkC2TPA #makeKINDNESSloud pic.twitter.com/XsLZlkPKdJ
