ARU Kindness Hour (online)

Join a community of students who love helping, come to our first ARU Kindness Hour of the year!

Thu 24 September 2020 12:00-13:00

ARU Kindness Hour (online)

We have a strong kindness culture at ARU with many students being regular volunteers, activists and just generally kind human beings!

After the world collapsed and everything moved to Zoom we wanted to find a way for our kind community to come together. We created weekly socials called Kindness Hour where every week we do a different activity helping an important cause. We have been signing petitions, knitting clothes for premature babies and making cards for those affected by self-isolation. It has been a lot of fun and we want to continue it through this academic year.

To make Kindness Hour accessible to as many wonderful people as possible, we will be organising the meet-ups online with the plan that we can meet face to face in the future.

In our first online ARU Kindness Hour of the year we will start by supporting an amazing project called Send a Smile organised by United in Kind asking people to contribute a story, drawing, poem etc. that could be sent to someone who is socially isolated and/or lonely. This might be to someone in sheltered housing or a refuge or someone on their own.

It is a great opportunity to get involved in something important and really make a difference to your community during you time at ARU.

We hope to see you there!
