Lynette McGill is spreading the message “be kind,” after an unusual encounter with a customer at the Emerald Park store where she works.

On Monday at Bella Chic, McGill met a survivor of the Oct. 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas.

The woman did not leave her name, but she purchased two bracelets, leaving one bracelet and a message on a yellow sticky note for McGill to pass on to the next customer.

“(She said) she’s just going through a really hard time and she wants to pay it forward and do something kind,” said McGill.

“It’s been a really tough go these last couple months and she wants to do 58 random acts of kindness to pay it forward to people, and this was one of them.”

The woman chose the number 58, she wrote, “in remembrance of the 58 angels who lose their lives that night.”

McGill said their meeting was “touching and overwhelming.” They both cried.

“She said it’s very difficult to get out of house and she feels scared. … She doesn’t know why she survived and others didn’t,” said McGill, who finds the woman’s message “heart-warming.”

“Just that random act of kindness, you don’t know what people are going through, so it could change their whole day or their whole life,” said McGill. “So just be kind and pay it forward and it could really help somebody out.”

The simple friendship-style bracelets already had a positive message.

They are being sold as part of a fundraiser for a 13-year-old Emerald Park girl named Mya, who has cancer.

Bella Chic owner Michelle Strawford plans to donate $1,000 to the Saskatoon Ronald McDonald House, where Mya’s family has stayed during her treatments.

“For her to choose these bracelets, it also means more to us than she probably knows,” said McGill.

This is a positive story, said McGill, when “so many things that can be bad on social media.”

Survivor: Jeff Probst sizes up the final five .
Each week, Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of Survivor: Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Ben was shocked that nobody went to follow him as he left to go look for an idol, which he then found. Should the other five players have had someone constantly following Ben everywhere or is that too impractical because there might be times — say where someone goes off for an interview or to the bathroom — that are impossible to monitor? What’s your take on babysitting folks looking for an idol? JEFF PROBST: You would think by season 35 there would be some kind of Survivor Manual with guidelines for every situation. But there are so many factors that come into play in each situation that it’s just not that clear. The easy criticism is to say “You idiots! You deserve it!” But having been in those jungles, I can attest to the fact that finding an idol is not nearly as easy it often appears to be on the show. Sometimes you get lucky and find it fast, but usually, you are searching for hours and most times come away with nothing. So I do think that was part of the thinking… “He’s not gonna find another one.” And I also think groupthink plays a part because nobody wants to be the babysitter. It’s exhausting and so often your time would be spent following someone who doesn’t end up finding anything. So if someone in the group suggests letting him go, others are easily swayed.
