Collage of random acts of kindness


On November 6, 2015 the University of Waterloo partnered with The Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation and the Stratford Perth Community Foundation to spread kindness on our campus and in the community. Celebrating Random Act of Kindness Day for the third year, #UWaterlooRAK saw hundreds of students, staff, faculty, and community members giving and receiving kind gestures.

Random Acts of Kindness Krew

On Saturday, February 28th, the Federation of StudentsRandom Acts of Kindness Krew helped kick the winter blues by offering their time to shovel driveways in our community for their first ever Shake the Snow event. Polishing up approximately 6 houses with 4 committed volunteers resulted in a successful community-driven adventure for this relatively new campus club.

Inspired by the University of Waterloo’s RAK Day achievements from last fall, club president, Victoria Harkes, felt that such a positive initiative like this could fuel it’s momentum with year-long student and community support.

Spreading kindness in our community with #UWaterlooRAK

On November 7, 2014 the University of Waterloo teamed up with The Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation and our Federation of Students to spread kindness on our campus and in the community. #UWaterlooRAK day saw hundreds of students, staff, faculty, and community members giving and receiving random acts of kindness.  Some of the activities included sharing kindness treats, gratitude and thank you card stations, exemptions on parking violations, the collection of winter wearables for those in need, toiletry donations for the Out of the Cold program, kindness encounters with Tony the Tiger and King Warrior, and a local community clean-up.
