California's SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO — The milestone of turning 30 can be frightening, though. Tsiliacos chose to use his anxiety as motivation when he turned 29 so that it wouldn't trigger a crisis.
Tsiliacos stated, "I took out a piece of paper and began to write down all the things I was grateful for. At that point, I understood that everything good that has happened to me has been made possible by the help and compassion of others.
Tsiliacos has set a goal for himself to perform 30 deeds of kindness before he turns 30 the following year as a way of paying it forward. Consequently, the 30 acts by 30 challenges were established.
Tsiliacos performed his first act of kindness by baking more than 400 pastries for San Jose firefighters. For his second act, he approached Oakland principals for a list of specific supplies they thought their teachers would need.
He gave 150 supply packages to middle schools in Oakland as a way to honor the crucial work that teachers do. Around $12,000 worth of goods from 18 sponsor firms around the nation were contributed in the form of paper, markers, and disinfectant wipes.
Maya Taylor, the principal of Oakland's Westlake Middle School, said, "Kind deeds like these remind us that we are not alone and that there are people out there who genuinely care about our community."
And this kind of activity is not his last.
Tsiliacos stated, "I'm only doing this for the sake of observing their reactions. And our objective is to make them happy and encourage others to give back in their ways.
Tsiliacos has been posting pictures of his kind deeds on social media. He wants others to see them and be motivated to contribute as well. On Instagram, search for @30actsby30 to see updates on Bryan's journey.View Details
