Random Acts of Kindness Week is Feb. 9-15

International Random Acts of Kindness Week is Feb. 9-15. Kindness Matters, a local Fairfield movement, led by Veronica Mollica emphasizes how kindness creates a collective power that positively influences our families, schools, workplaces, and communities.

Mollica along with other North Stratfield Elementary School parents, have developed a Kindness Matters campaign at the school. The guiding belief that cultivating kindness with kids at an early age will foster an environment that is inclusive rather than exclusive. Although the group holds many events and activities throughout the year, International Radom Acts of Kindness (RAK) Week is the perfect opportunity to involve the community and watch kindness become contagious.

North Stratfield students will be completing more than 4,000 random acts of kindness leading up to the week long event. On Monday, Feb. 9, during the school assembly students will share projects they have been working on called the “Gratitude Project” and “What Kindness Means to Me” after taking the kindness pledge. The staff will highlight a kind character trait each day and discuss ways to practice them. All students will take part in a school wide art project that will be displayed in the cafeteria.

North Stratfield students also will venture out in the community by hiding bookmarks with kind notes in public library books. The super hero of kindness scavenger hunt takes place in downtown Fairfield on Feb. 13.

Look for promotional flyers around town and don’t forget to accomplish your own random act of kindness each day of the celebratory week. You can like the Kindness Matters Facebook page for updates and find more information at kindnessmatters.net and randomactsofkindness.org.
