2 Seahawks fans commit 12 random acts of kindness for tickets to big game
SEATTLE -- Can you put a price on kindness? For two Seahawks fans, the answer is yes.
When Steve Hunsaker and Griffin Walker tweeted they'd do anything to get two tickets to Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams, the team challenged them to perform 12 random acts of kindness.
The pair spent all day Friday doing just that, Tweeting their progress along the way.
The dozen acts started with the two taking a photo of a family at a large Christmas tree near the Pike Place Market, but the team challenged them to think bigger and kinder.
From there, the two helped a homeless man with a sale of Real Change newspaper, gave a personal escort for tourists trying to get from the Pike Place Market to the waterfront's Great Wheel, and bought an outside balloon vendor a cup of coffee to withstand the chilly afternoon.
Their fifth act helped us out a little bit:
The acts became a bit larger as the afternoon progressed -- they bought three women Seahawks-colored flowers, cleaned the floor at Micks Peppourri store at Pike Place Market, and Hunsaker then donated his favorite hat to a little Seahawks fan:December 27, 2013
"I was sad to see it go," Hunsaker told KOMO News.
Next, it was on to pick up a random family's parking tab near the Market (probably about as expensive as game tickets) then volunteering at the Green Tortoise Hostel. No. 11 was spreading the message of kindness and giving back through social and traditional media, all leading up to their 12th and final act: volunteering at Union Gospel Mission to help feed dinner to those in need.
Hunsaker and Walker said that the Seahawks have informed them that they did do enough to earn the tickets and the pair will be among the 68,000-plus strong cheering on against the Rams Sunday afternoon.
