8-year-old completes 600 acts of kindness, gets to meet penguins

Alex McKelvey an animal lover and 'professed future zookeeper' got the opportunity to meet the animals Saturday at the Woodland Park Zoo, according to the zoo's Facebook page.

The Woodland Park Zoo thanked Random Acts and co-founder Supernatural star Misha Collins, for making the connection possible. Random Acts is a non-profit group that encourages people of all ages to perform their own acts of kindness wherever possible, according to the group's website.

McKelvey was also given free zoo carousel passes, which she passed on to others, another act of kindness.
