On Friday November 13, 2015 Richter Center Ambassadors tabled for World Kindness Day at Fresno State. The goal was to inform students about World Kindness Day and to encourage them to do an act of kindness for someone— someone they love or even a stranger. Suggestions ranged from feeding a vending machine, thanking someone, or volunteering time at an organization. These acts of kindness can certainly make someone’s day as well as be rewarding to the person who does them. There are endless possibilities on what you can do for others, and a plus is that most do not involve spending money.
Although there are certain days in the year in which kind acts are done on a large scale, I encourage you to do a random act of kindness whenever there is an opportunity to do so.
Will you act on Random Acts of Kindness Day on February 17, 2016?

I probably fail to live up to this myself more often that I succeed, but I hope that everyday, each person can find an opportunity to go out of their way just a bit… even a few seconds… and show kindness to someone else. It does not take much; a hug, a smile, a cheerful greeting to a stranger, letting someone else go first at the stop sign/intersection (a hard one for me!). Thanks for helping encourage kindness on our campus, Alma!
