 Day of Kindness 

 1 September 2015

09h00 - 14h30

Following the trend of an international awareness of kindness, CCDU is inviting the Wits community to participate in a conscious day of kindness.  The aim is to notice the kindness around us and being kind to oneself and others.  Do something kind for yourself or for someone else…

Below are ideas of how YOU can participate:

*  Collection of non-perishable items and clothing to be donated to the Wits Citizenship and Community Outreach (WCCO). 

                - Collection points – CCDU, WCCO, Library Lawns, Alumni Affairs Office
