Pennfield School student James Bistlne hands a bag of quarters to a surprised customer at a Bristol landromat as a ‘Random act of holiday kindness.’

Pennfield School students have been startling people in the East Bay with their acts of holiday kindness at unlikely places and moments.

Suzanne Ramponi, a kindergarten class mother at the Portsmouth school, wanted to do a charitable project with her son and his class.  She came across Random Acts of Holiday Kindness, otherwise known as RAHK’ed.  Each child was given three RAHK’ed cards to use in the community.

The gestures have been simple, such as paying past due library fees for a few people, bringing balloons and a toy to a sick child at the hospital, taping money to vending machines around town, buying a gift card at Dunkin’ Donuts and giving it to a person in line, or baking cookies for fire and police departments.

The Pennfield School kicked off the kindness project last week, so look for the students’ cards around the community during the month of December
