A little kindness can go a long way

Celebrated at Holland Brook School during the week of February 5-9, students were each given a Kindness Challenge checklist and encouraged to do as many acts of kindness as possible.

Four residents of Primrose waited outside Elson Hall at noon and handed out small bags filled with snacks and candy to students passing by.

Residents of Primrose Retirement Community in Mankato spent their Thursday morning spreading random acts of kindness across Minnesota State's Centennial Student Union.

At least for sophomore Emily Bartholic, who received a $10 Amazon gift card from a senior.

Charles Streng said the reactions of students were priceless. "I was in the Army/Air Force and we had to learn how to be officers there, it sure wasn't like this".

Student, Adam Day, of Lancaster, said he would definitely pay the kindness forward.

Launched in 1995, Random Acts of Kindness week is an annual opportunity to unite people around the world through kindness.

This seven-day celebration demonstrates that kindness is contagious.

"I just want to see how nice it is to give somebody something", Hahn said.
