Spreading kindness one small act at a time

On Nov. 7, you might find yourself smiling more than usual. “Random Acts of Kindness Day” is coming to UNB.

“This year the UNBSU is planning to spread kindness throughout the campus community,” said UNBSU vice-president external Nicole Saulnier.

The random act of kindness movement started in 2008 in Ontario. Now in Fredericton for a second year, it’s a great way to brighten up someone’s day with even the smallest gesture.

This year the UNBSU will be walking around and handing out free coffee coupons courtesy of Sodexo and giving away bags of candy to all students.

“This is a stressful time of the year and we are really hoping that people will pass kindness to others,” said Saulnier.

“[Random Acts of Kindness Day] is really important because it reminds us that something as small as a free coffee could greatly improve someone’s day. It promotes a campus culture that is positive and supportive of our peers.”
