Getting involved in Thousand Hours

We have loads of ways for you to get involved in Thousand Hours. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to weave acts of kindness into your every day life; into your family life; and into your community. Have a scroll down for some easy ways to join in A Kindness Revolution this October and beyond! 

31 Acts of Kindness

We developed 31 acts of kindness that you could do throughout October in 2019. That’s one a day! Head to our 31 Acts of Kindness page to have a look and get some ideas of things you could do in October 2020. There’s even a downloadable poster, so maybe you could be doing some of this acts of kindness throughout the year too?

Other Ways to Get Involved

Personal Volunteering

You can do any personal volunteering of your own, throughout the month, whether that’s baking cakes for your neighbours, litter picking around your community or anything else you can think of. The sky is your limit when it comes to kindness. Just don’t forget to keep track of how much time it takes and Log Your Hours on our website as you go! And send us your stories!

Organised Volunteering

We will be organising a few different types of events that you can volunteer at. We’d love to see you out and about with us, making a difference in our community. 


Go Local

There are a lot of projects already doing great things around your community, every day of the year. Seek some out and join one! Whether it’s volunteering in a charity shop, litter picking on a regular basis, or regularly donating to a local cause.

Choose October as your month to make a change and commit to something great around your town. #KindnessIsNotJustForOctober

(but it can START in October!)


If for any reason, you can’t physically take part in Thousand Hours in October, another way that you can get involved is to financially give to the project. 

If you would like to give money towards making Thousand Hours happen, you can give via the Ashford Vineyard website, just choose “Thousand Hours” from the drop down list.

Log Your Hours

How ever you choose to get involved this October; whether that’s through personal volunteering, volunteering with an already established local organisation, or with organised events run by us or our supporters, don’t forget to Log Your Hours on our quick and easy form. Just tell us what you did, who you impacted, and any stories you have to share.

You can even upload photos onto your form!

Log your hours every day; as you go, no matter how small. Every little counts towards A Kindness Revolution in our Community!

Stories inspire and encourage us to keep going, and keep being kind! If you have a story to tell, we’d LOVE to hear it. Head to our Stories page to read some stories, and share your own with us via the easy form!
