Have you ever had someone hold the door open for you or help
you carry your groceries to your car? What
about you? Have you ever smiled at a stranger as they were walking by or given
someone your seat on the TTC? Performing random acts of kindness is a
phenomenon that has been around for a while. This year, the week of February 13
to February 17 is known as Random Acts of Kindness Week. It is meant to
highlight the kind acts that people do for each other every day as well as to
encourage others be more benevolent.
Throughout this week, students in residence at Ryerson
University will be encouraged to perform kind acts for one another. With
various activities being organized by the staff, students will be invited to
participate in acts, such as displaying their random acts of kindness in the
building lobby and pinning sweet messages on strangers.
In addition, members of the Residence Life Team will be
handing out free stuff to students on different days during the week in the
Pitman lobby to further help promote what this week is about.
Ryerson residents, let’s spread the love by giving.
