President Steenkamp: RRU Kindness Cascade


Dr. Bonnie Henry has made the word “kind” a part of our day-to-day conversation, but my favourite quote is from the Dalai Lama: “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”

Next week is Kindness Week around the world.

I admire kindness. It is surely not random. Often small in action, its impact is vast.

Help me start a Kindness Cascade!

I have been thinking of all the kindnesses you show each other every day at Royal Roads.

So I am going to begin a ‘Kindness Cascade’ next week. I have chosen a student to do something kind for, then I will ask her to pass it along to someone else in our community, and I hope it will carry on. We’ll share the results next week.

A few kind ideas

If you wish to join in, please do! Share your act of kindness (here are a few ideas) on our RRU social media channels with an #RRUKindnessCascade so we can all cheer you on.
