Fischer said his goal is to break last year's record of more than 165,000 acts of kindness through volunteerism, donations and more.
"I think it really says a lot about our city. We want to just get together and help each other, lift each other up. That's our city's value of compassion," he said during a kickoff event at Meyzeek Middle School.
Fischer said he hopes every Louisvillian will get involved. Saturday, Representative John Yarmuth was one of many who got involved in the "Build A Bed" event at Meyzeek.
