10,000 Acts of Kindness

Celebrating York's Unity through 10,000 Acts of Kindness

Celebrating York's Unity through 10,000 Acts of Kindness will be a multi-cultural, multi-faith, non-partisan and all inclusive unity festival celebrating the growth York  has made over the past 50 years.  The celebration will be held on June 30, 2019, in Penn Park with one-and-a-half miles of tables in an attempt to earn  the Guinness Book of Records' title for the longest table in the world.

To be one of 10,000 people seated at the table a person will have performed a recognized act of kindness that benefits others in a meaningful or tangible way.  Ten Thousand Kindness Coins will be minted and awarded through local community organizations, faith groups, schools, businesses, government agencies, and online nominations.   Each act of kindness will move us  one step closer to full unity.

The purpose of this year-long project is to shed light on the kind and positive side of this area of central Pennsylvania. Throughout the year, county-wide involvement, led by Ambassadors for Unity through Kindness, will facilitate many projects,  events, and opportunities to build community and highlight the kindness of thousands of people. This is an opportunity to spread the good news about York far beyond our borders through the use of both social and traditional media.

At the Celebration of York's Unity through 10,000 Acts of Kindness festival on June 30, 2019, 10,000 area residents will break bread together to celebrate the kindnesses that have been gifted throughout the year and brought us over 10,000 steps closer to full unity.

We believe York has the potential to be a model of unity for the country. This event could change our world as each act of kindness creates unity and reaches out spreading through York and beyond.
