The City of Fishers has announced a new initiative to spread kindness throughout the community. The 2000 Acts of Kindness Challenge encourages residents to complete 2,000 acts of kindness by Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 18.
The challenge supports locally owned Fishers restaurants and encourages residents to dine local. Fishers is committing $100,000 in gift cards from locally owned restaurants to distribute to residents for completing and sharing their act of kindness.
“2020 has been a year that has challenged us as a community, but it has also given us new opportunities to come together,” Mayor Scott Fadness stated. “I’ve seen neighbors helping neighbors, offering to pick up groceries or deliver meals. I have seen our residents step up to support strangers, participating in food drives and creating holiday care packages for those in need. To cap off this unprecedented year, I challenge our community to give back 2,000 times over, in ways both big and small. Shovel a neighbor’s driveway, send a letter of encouragement to a friend, hold the door for a stranger. Find opportunities to serve others in new ways and let us showcase what Fishers is all about.”
Residents can share their kind act, or nominate someone who has performed a kind act, through an online form at smartsheet.com/b/form/2bb80db199a44683b3c19e881bc5cb50 or on social media using #FishersKindness. By completing the online form, the individual is eligible to receive a $50 gift card to a Fishers restaurant.
