The BeKind UNM initiative is dedicated to random acts of kindness. Annually, in February, the Division of Student Affairs spearheads the celebration of Random Acts of Kindness week on the UNM campus.
In the wake of the recent tragedies in Albuquerque, the BeKind group wanted to step-up and do its part to help prevent road rage and other acts of violence by providing a small reminder to be kind and courteous always, but especially while driving.
Car magnets, which read: “Be Kind. Be Courteous. Get home safe,” have been ordered and will be available for free when they become available. There are also downloadable images available at BeKind UNM.
BeKind’s website also includes the links to the gofundme accounts for 4-year-old Lilly Garcia, who was killed in a road rage incident last week, and for Officer Daniel Webster, who was critically injured after being shot in the line of duty.
In the meantime, if you would like a full size (8.5x11) or half size (4.25x5.5) copy of the sign to display in your car or anywhere you see fit, feel free to download it from BeKind UNM online.
