After the tragedy in Connecticut, a social media movement is growing, honoring those killed in the attack.

Over the weekend NBC News correspondent Ann Curry posted this question to Twitter: "Imagine if everyone went out and committed 20 acts of kindness for every child lost in Newtown?"

That turned into the hashtag #20acts.

Tuesday, Knoxville-based One Vision International received a donation as part of the 20 acts movement. It's a non-profit that helps children around the globe.

"Of course everyone knows it's an unfortunate incident that occurred in Connecticut, but it's good that so many people around the country are doing something good because of it. And all the way in Haiti, those kids are going to benefit from something unfortunate that happened in Connecticut," said John Miller.

One Vision couldn't say who made the donation or how much it was for, but it says the money will go toward food and medicine for its orphanage in Haiti.
