Kindness Is Always In Season!

March is Kindness Month at Ithaca College! Celebrate with us by posting your random acts of kindness (stories, videos, pictures) to our Employee Benefits & Work/Life Facebook page

“Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.” ~Seneca

One kind word can change someone’s entire day. Pass on your kindness to your co-workers because KINDNESS MATTERS!

Feel free to print and pass out KINDNESS CARDS to make someone’s day a little sunnier.
