Seven Little Duckies from California to Florida

I went on vacation to Disney World in Florida recently, and wanted to leave a trail of duckies for The Little Yellow Duck Project.




What is the Little Yellow Duck Project?
The Little Yellow Duck Project involves people around the world handcrafting little yellow duck gifts as random acts of kindness that are left in public places for others to find. A special tag on each one invites the finder to take their gift home to brighten their day and to visit this website to register where they found their gift. We hope that the stories and information found here will encourage them to pledge their own random act of kindness by registering to donate blood, bone marrow, and organs tissues.



I made 7 little duckies the week before I left.






I painted all their eyes with Tulip Slick Fabric Paint to make sure they were safe for 
anyone who would find them.





The first ducky was named Teddy, after the UK's youngest organ donor. 
I gave him to my Sister in Law when she picked us up, to take us to the airport.





The second ducky, named Russell after my late Grandfather,
was left at the San Jose International Airport. 





The third ducky, also named Russell after my Grandpa, was left in the Magic Kingdom in Disney World.
He has already been put on the map!





The fourth ducky, also named Russell, was left in the Animal Kingdom in Disney World. 
He has already made it to the map as well!





The fifth ducky, named Shannon after my sister who passed away before I was born. 
She was left in Epcot in Paris. She has already been put on the map!





5 duckies had found their homes and 2 still waited in the hotel for their forever homes.





The sixth ducky, named Russell, was left in Downtown Disney, right outside of the Disney Store.




The seventh and last ducky, named Russell, was left in Hollywood Studios right before we left the park.



So far 3/7 ducks have made it to The Little Yellow Duck Project's map
and I hope more will be placed on the map.

  1. That is such a lovely, and worthy, project! And all your duckies were so adorable! I hope they all find homes soon, and will be put on the map! I enjoyed looking at the pictures and reading your comments during your trip to Disney...with the ducks and also with Precious!
