A Las Vegas family is making it their mission to make strangers smile by committing Random Acts of Kindness across the city.

14-year-old Isabella Saucedo and her sister Gabriella have been leaving little gifts and cards that say "Enjoy this Random Act of Kindness" for strangers in hopes of making their day.

"It is great to at least make people feel good about themselves," said Isabella.

The girls have attached the letters to things like detergent, which they left at a random laundrymat, and brand new baby wipes on a random store shelf in hopes a mother would find it.

"I hope that it made their day and put a smile on their face," said Gabriella.

This idea of giving back didn't just come from the girls instead it started with their mother, Kristina.

"I just see on a daily basis how much we're losing our children," Kristina said.

Kristina first took her girls to a class called Real Talk, which is geared toward kids who are in trouble or have even face jail time.

"I was scared," remembers Gabriella.

"I wondered what did I do? Did I do something wrong?" Isabella said.

"I just wanted them to see that one little thing they do can lead them down a terrible road," mother Kristina said.

Kristina would know. She has dealt with the hardships of life as a single mother who first became pregnant at 15 years old. She now works for the school district and sees the trouble kids can quickly get in.

"It's a tough world out there," Kristina said.

What started as a lesson for her daughters, Kristina says has turned into a growing experience for the entire family.

"Put things aside and listen to your children because you will learn a lot," Kristina said.
