About 200 area students and adults are participating in "Random Acts of Kindness," an initiative that promotes just what it says.
Kirk Hess, master instructor at Hess's Oriental Martial Arts Center in Sandusky, brought the national initiative to the area three years ago. The basic concept is for people to perform at least 50 acts of kindness each before March 20 and to document each act in a journal.
For the last two years, Hess and the participants logged a total of 10,000 acts. This year he hopes to reach 20,000.
"It doesn't seem like a lot, but it takes 400 people to do 50 acts of kindness to reach that goal," Hess said.
To participate, contact Kirk Hess at 419-680-0061 or the martial arts center at 419-626-6100.
