Spread Kindness with Student Health on Haven and Vicky Barone

Random Act of Kindness Day is an annual day dedicated to encouraging kindness in the world, taking place this year on Thursday, February 17, 2022. To celebrate, CUIMC Student Health on Haven’s Well-Being and Health Promotion team is distributing Kindness Cards with thoughtful and uplifting messages in collaboration with North Carolina-based artist Vicky Barone, known for her playful imagery, colorful, uplifting words and greeting cards sold worldwide. Kindness Cards were created using affirmations submitted by CUIMC students, illustrated through vibrant palettes and geometric patterns using Vicky’s signature creative process.
