The initiative is organised by Ashford Vineyard (a Community Church in Ashford), and the ‘Thousand Hours’ project will encourage people to pay it forward and give something back to the community by doing a random act of kindness.
It could be anything from paying for a coffee for the person next in line to volunteering your time to help a charitable casue.
This year, the Thousand Hours team will be in 25 primary schools in Ashford and the surrounding areas; teaching, inspiring and encouraging the children to be kind on a daily basis. The team will be organising events across the town that the whole community can get involved in, and will be encouraging everyone to find ways that they can give their time to bring kindness to the people around them.
If you would like to get involved in “A Kindness Revolution” this October, follow Thousand Hours on Instagram/Facebook: @AVThousandHours #ThousandHours19 #AKindnessRevolution, check out their website: www.thousandhours.org,
Join in with some of the organised events or do your own acts of kindness throughout October both on your own, or as a family. Just be sure to log your hours as you go, towards the total, on the Thousand Hours website! Whether you give 1 hour, or 20 hours during the month, it all counts, and it all makes a difference.
