Thursdays Random Acts of Kindness! Johnny Depp travels with Jack!

August 21, 2014

Here’s a re-post of one of my favorite Thursday stories that we’ve done! Enjoy!


As most of you know, we try to take time each Thursday to recognize Random Acts of Kindness with a Disney spin to them. This week, I had remembered a blog we did last summer, regarding how Johnny Depp “travels” with Captain Jack.

When Johnny Depp was making the rounds promoting The Lone Ranger, he explained in an interview why when he travels, he always takes his Captain Jack Sparrow costume with him.

“Sometimes you go to kiddie hospitals and things like that,” the actor explained. “I’ll just sneak in and go and surprise a bunch of kiddies through the different wards…It basically turns into a two-, three-hour improvisation and it’s really fun. So I travel with Captain Jack.”  How awesome is that??  What a guy!

I think that’s a wonderful way to pay it forward, and an extraordinary act of kindness. Can you imagine what it must be like for those children to get a hospital visit from Captain Jack Sparrow himself? What a beautiful thing to do.

In everyday life, we get busy and distracted, and sometimes going the extra mile for others gets pushed aside. Stories like this, and other ones that we’ve done on Thursdays, are an excellent reminder for me. It only take a few minutes to make someone’s day!
