Oakville Today Features Kindness Coaches Visit to Oakville

Feb 11, 2013

NORTH OAKVILLE – The dynamic duo of kindness will be taking their message to the students (and educators) of Holy Family on Monday with one goal: making the world a kinder place.

Steffi Black and Ivy Sims will be presenting their workshop, inspired by the Random Act of Kindness website (randomactofkindness.org) as part of the school's Random Act of Kindness Week activities.

The kindness coaches are touting the success of a recent study out of Vancouver, which showed students are more accepting of their peers after performing three acts of kindness per week over a four-week period.

"There's a lot of research that shows kindness is contagious," said Sims. "Endorphins are released when you do something kind – a helper's high – and people physically feel good. Once they realize how great it feels, they want to do it more."
