Tiffani: Harper Inspired Me To Do The KIND Thing (April 21, 2012)
Tiffani Thiessen has blogged about her experience with Do the KIND Thing — an initiative with Baby Buggy to bring relief to parents in need. The White Collar star — who has 1 1/2-year-old daughter Harper with husband Brady Smith — says working with the charity was an honor.
She writes: "Over the last month, I've been honored to team up with Baby Buggy and fellow actress and mother, Elisabeth Röhm, to give back to parents in need and make the world a little kinder in the process through an initiative called Do The KIND Thing. One thing I am always trying to teach Harper is the importance of kindness and giving back — and Do the KIND Thing reinforces that very principle."
The 38-year-old actress adds, "Since the birth of my daughter Harper, my life has significantly changed for the better, but I would be lying if I didn't admit that parenthood brings with it many unexpected moments. While I am blessed to have the resources to give Harper a bright future, many parents are not as fortunate."
In March Thiessen and Rohm invited people to carry out small acts of kindness to a parent.
She states, "This meant anything from holding a door open for a mom or dad with a stroller to babysitting free of charge."
Fortunately there were enough people who pledged and she ended up working with KIND and Baby Buggy on "donating diapers and other essential items to families who need them most in New York."
Thiessen notes, "It was a meaningful event that truly pulled at my heartstrings and helped shed light on such an important cause."
