STUDENTS and staff at the Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) are being encouraged to engage in an act of kindness a day.
The Moylish college has launched its ‘Kindness Kampaign’ to mark World Mental Health week.
College vice-president Terry Twomey got the ball rolling this week, making his own conscious act of kindness.
Now students and staff in each campus are being encouraged to do likewise.
The idea is someone receiving an act of kindness will then do likewise to someone else. It is hoped the college will receive the Kindness Flag award from Pay it Forward Limerick, and become the first third level institution to be acknowledged as promoting kindness, culture, wellbeing and positive mental health.
