Bring kindness into your workplace

Spending time at Heartlands Church in Casino last Sunday morning and having the pleasure of sharing ideas with the crew from the local Global Care team was a delight. Last year the team for National Others Week held a BBQ in the local school to celebrate the children and to encourage them to be kind to others. Joan McKee shared some her successes at her workplace last year and felt inspired to encourage other people to bring kindness into their own workplaces.  Joan penned some thoughts to share with you:

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO IN YOUR WORK PLACE FOR N. O. W. THIS YEAR?
I work at Summerland Christian College in Lismore, NSW and I thought I could do something! I spoke to the Principal and staff and they all said… “Go for it” So for that whole week, the College celebrated NOW! With the Primary students creating posters… With every one receiving a.. Certificate of Participation! High School students started each day with a card on which to write their goals for the day. Then on the Friday… Primary students brought in yummy goodies for a cake stall and the High Schoolers operated a BBQ, Sausage Sizzle. From this day we raised $1,290:80 and this money was sent to Global Care in Penrith to help the Bushfire Victims!! We even made it into our local paper… So looking forward to what we are going to do this year…. As the College has that week already marked off on the calendar for this year!!!

 

The wonderful highlight for me from this experience is that Joan has also multiplied out her efforts for this year, inviting other churches and businesses to become involved because at the end of the day, it was FUN.  People had a blast and felt great as they were doing something that is worthwhile. Everybody wins.

How will you bring kindness to your workplace?

This video is about a lady who wanted to keep her promise to a friend to help.
I love how she says, I’m on the earth, I’m here, if I can contribute, I should. Shouldn’t we all and not just think of ourselves.
