DENVER — A group of friends has come up with a plan to see 365 acts of kindness performed in 2013.

The Open Hearts Project is the brain child of Rod Burks. He wanted to set up an organization to motivate citizens to help our neighbors while supporting charity groups.

“Everyone has a heart big enough to perform at least one act of selfless service during the new year,” said Burks. “Our first project is to feed 300 homeless folks on New Year’s Day.”

We found Burks and several friends at Larimer 35’s kitchen early Tuesday morning, cooking and baking items for the give-away. Everyone was chipping in with making cookies — they need 900 for the snack bags they are giving away.

Open Hearts Project is a non-profit which hopes people will get involved with to help chart 365 service projects.

The web site is openheartsprojectdenver.org on their site you can chart your project and converse with others who are also working to help others.

The group can also be reached at 818-613-7096.
