18 year old Samantha Manns is remembering her beautiful great-grandmother, Virginia (“Jinjey”), in the best way possible – with good deeds.  Samantha’s great-grandmother, who had a profound effect on her life, recently passed at the age of 89.

“Some of her last words were, ‘I don’t want anybody to be upset.’ And I was really upset for a few days,” Samantha stated. “Then I thought, maybe I can’t be happy right now, but I can do things to make other people happy.”

It all started at the McDonald’s drive-thru where she paid for the person behind her in line.  Samantha said she looked in her rear-view mirror and saw that the customer was crying tears of joy.  “It made me feel pretty good.”, Samantha said.

She went on to creating a Facebook page called 89 Acts where she continues to list her good deeds.  As the site grew in popularity, she created 89 Acts packets which detail good deeds that anyone could do.

“It’s crazy how many people have asked me for the packets,” Samantha said.

And that’s what’s good,
