Show Your Buckeye Love on National Random Acts of Kindness Day

Each February, the Ohio State community comes together to celebrate Buckeye Love. This year, the emphasis for our celebration is kindness. What better day to celebrate than National Random Acts of Kindness Day on Thursday, Feb. 17.

Buckeyes across the university are being called to share kindness with one another, both in-person and virtually. We are asking all students, faculty, staff and university partners to embrace the opportunity to create connections that bring joy and inspire others to do the same.

Sharing kindness in a virtual work environment can be challenging, so we’ve gathered a few resources to help you get started.

Branded Graphics
