Thousand Hours began in Ashford in October 2016 when we decided to pledge a thousand hours of our time to bringing life to Ashford. Whether through personal volunteering in our own neighbourhoods – picking up litter, baking cakes for neighbours, etc. or collectively by putting on community events throughout the month of October, we wanted to make an impact on the town that we love by spreading acts of kindness, and bringing life in any way that we could.
Every year, Thousand Hours gets bigger and better. We now link up with schools to give them the tools to be a part of Thousand Hours too, and we are loving the relationships being built as we help teachers weave kindness into their curriculum, instilling kindness in Children’s hearts from a young age.
For more information about what Thousand Hours is, and how you can get involved this October, check out our website or get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are plenty of ways you can log hours toward A Kindness Revolution this October and beyond!
