Good Time Turns Into Flash Mob

What do 8 year olds, hockey, pizza, 200 screaming fans and a high school band have in common?

Cindy Donnelley.


Cindy’s son plays for a team that has not won a hockey game in two years.

But the boys play with their love of the game and always have fun.

While the team won’t be celebrating a championship or title any time soon, Cindy knew they should be celebrated nonetheless.

It was kind of surprising – it looked like the NHL” – Tyler

I looked up and I was like, woah” – Marshall


This heartwarming story speaks for itself as a wonderful reminder that making a difference starts where you look and flows where you step.

Everyone in the arena became part of a story they will remember and share forward for a lifetime.

Ideas don’t have to be grand, take a lot of time, or last forever to make an impact.

When people show up, if even for an afternoon, amazing things happen.


An idea must start somewhere and there’s a reason the idea came to you.

Crazy for cats and potatoes, Lorraine's insatiable curiosity of Life leads her to question, explore and push beyond the box. A self-professed "left-brained creative big picture" type, she has an intuitive knack for seeing beyond and beneath first appearances while at the same time nerding out on the details. Most of all she sees and holds others in their highest until they can see it for themselves.

    Lorraine, this has brought tears to my eyes, how lovely to have an idea to just celebrate the fun of life and not just winning. .. hope it spreads around.. love it..

    I also love how it inspired you .. this is a great quote “making a difference starts where you look and flows where you step” so true.. You’ve inspired me to take note of and act on my ideas, big or small. i can often let them go.. much love xo

      Celebrating Life really does take on a whole different energy than winning. I was caught up in the same way you were.

      I’m grateful you are inspired to be inspired by the ideas you are gifted with. We’re all winners then!

    Wow, this expands my heart so much, I love it! Thanks so much for sharing the love. I’m gonna share this!

      Expanding is a perfect way to describe the feeling and be swept up into the energy of that afternoon.

      If we all thought to celebrate others ‘just because’ how much fun would that be!
