On Thursday, he cleaned playgrounds with his wife at The Growing Tree Academy in Tampa for free.

"I couldn't believe that they wanted to do it for free. We were excited about it especially with things closing right now. I was very surprised," said Carla Dittman, Assistant Director at The Growing Tree Academy.

The couple asked their followers on Facebook if any schools would like its playgrounds cleaned for free.

Hendricks posted on his company's Facebook page on March 12 offering to help the community.

The couple plans to clean another 18 playgrounds for free.

Justin and Tiffani have three children and wanted to make sure a child's playground is safe.

"We really hope that we can spread kindness. If people are seeing one act of kindness, hopefully the acts of kindness will just carry on and carry on," said Tiffani Hendricks.
