TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Random Acts is on a mission to conquer the world one random act of kindness at a time.

The non-profit is also inspiring K-12 classrooms through their class act program.

A school can win $8,000 for doing a kind act at their school or in their community.

In addition to the application schools should include pictures or videos that tell the story of the kindness act they performed in the community.

“It allows children at a really young age to be involved with kindness,” said Random Acts SE representative Misty Cash. “It incorporates that feeling of wanting to do something for your friends or your community.”

The grand prize winner can use the money however they see fit.

“We’re going to present that $8,000 to the school and it would be great if they did some more kindness in the community with that $8,000,” said Cash. “But of course, if the school has another need they can spend that $8,000 on whatever they need at their school to make learning the best environment.”

The deadline to enter is May 2.
