The power of kindness

Western's Kind Mail project, where alumni wrote notes of encouragement to students living in their old residence rooms during the stressful holiday exam season, has struck a chord.

Launched as a pilot, the goal of the Kind Mail project was to engage 200 alumni in its inaugural year. In the end, more than 1,400 alumni participated and the project received attention from The Globe and Mail, CTV National News, CBC Radio, AM980 News and the Gazette.
