May is the month of Random Acts of Kindness! To celebrate this amazing iniative by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation to make kindness the norm we are challenging staff and students to do a random act of kindness each day this month. When we show kindness towards others it has a ripple effect- impacting on the person we are being kind towards, but also increasing our own sense of wellbeing. Help make kindness the norm at COGC by spreading it in the simplest ways! The challenges spread kindness in four themed areas:
To participate check out the Random Acts of Kindness Calendar on this page. Each day has a prompt to help you get out there and spread positivity! We have made these suggestions interactive, easy to do and as cheap as possible, so that everyone can get involved! Give them a try and let us know how you’re getting on by sharing photos and videos of you doing the challenges with us. Feel free to include pictures or videos or a couple of sentences reflecting on your experience. You can share your responses to the challenges by either:
- Posting in the padlet’s we've set up for the different challenges (links in the calendar)
- Tag us on Twitter, Facebook or Instgram
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also keen to share your stories via our Humans of COGC campign. Humans of COGC is an ongoing campaign which celebrates the diverse student popluation at the College through articles written by students. If you would like to write an article on the theme of kindness, one of the four catagories or a particular challenges, send us an email at email@example.com.
