About our #SpreadKindness bracelets

 In most incidents of bullying and harassment, there are witnesses present. When we don’t step in, we can inadvertently signal that we approve of the behaviour, leaving the target feeling very alone. When we safely take action, we can help stop the negative behaviour from continuing, and show that bullying and harassment are not behaviours we will condone.  

It only takes one person to make a difference in someone else’s life.

When it comes to mental health, one person can make a difference, too. For example, having a kind and supportive friend may buffer us from some of the negative things that inevitably happen in life. Being a trustworthy and reliable good friend – not just a superficial one – can make a difference in both your life and your friends’ lives!

Spreading kindness can be as simple as showing up, being there, saying something. It doesn't have to be complicated. But sometimes it does take courage and a real commitment to doing the kind ting.

Our new #SpreadKindness bracelet campaign was developed by our National Youth Advisory Committee members Alison Flett and Alex Hilson, along with PREVNet graduate student Chloe Hudson.

Wearing a #SpreadKindness bracelet signifies that you are a person who is both willing and able to support a peer.

 

 

The #SpreadKindness bracelet is also a symbol for all of our Youth Advisory Committee’s projects that we’re rolling out this year, all of which have the aim of promoting healthy relationships and preventing bullying. 

We have lots of bracelets to give away! If you’d like one and you a) live in Canada and b) are 14 years old or older, send an email to us at PREVNet@queensu.ca with your name and mailing address, and we will send you two bracelets! Wear one and share one with a friend! (While supplies last; we will remove this message when they're all gone!)

Then, take a photo and tag us on Instagram. We’re @spreadkindnesscanada. We’d love to see how you are spreading kindness in your communities!
