Total acts of kindness as of August 22, 2017
The Orange County Department of Education and its partners have launched an ambitious campaign encouraging students, educators and community members to help reach the goal of registering one billion acts of kindness.
What constitutes an act of kindness? Well, that’s pretty much up to you. It could be as simple as picking up a discarded cup along the sidewalk or allowing a car to merge in front of you on a busy interchange. Or it could be more involved, like visiting a home for senior citizens, joining a beach clean-up or volunteering at a local animal shelter. Either way, it’s about doing something kind with no expectations of reciprocity, and we hope you’ll add to our running total by sharing it on this site or on social media.
One Billion Acts of Kindness is an initiative created by the Orange County Department of Education and Orange County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Al Mijares to improve school climates, promote character and rally the community for greater civility.
