  • Dearborn, Mich. — Today eyes of a nation, eyes of the world turn to Memphis, Tenn. Today, at about 6:01 p.m. CT, 50 years after the assassination of a revolutionary, who still connects people across this nation and around the world, thoughts turn momentarily to the past.

    Now, a partnership between The King Center and Ford Motor Company urges you to carryout acts of kindness, just as Martin Luther King Jr. fought for civil rights through nonviolent protests. Dr. King understood the power in unity and that an individual is made stronger when a group acts with a common goal.

    The 50 Acts of Kindness Campaign runs through Aug. 28. That’s 146 days to complete 50 acts of service or kindness! Register an act online and in Contact Information/Name of Group enter Ford. Share this campaign around your campus with this poster.
