COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Columbus State University aimed to perform 1,000 acts of kindness on Thursday.
24 students went around campus handing out bags of candy with helpful quotes inside of the bags.
"You want to show kindness to people. You want to give respect to earn respect. So showing an act of kindness line opening a door, giving someone a hug or just some encouraging words for someone will definitely help someone's day or change their life by chance," Brandon Oglesby said, CSU freshmen.
The students are from a first-year seminar class who participated and the project is called, "Lend a Hand."
