February is Random Acts of Kindness Month at Cooper! There are numerous studies on the benefits of gratitude and sharing your appreciation for your colleagues and others is multiplicative! We also want to acknowledge all you do for others, for your patients, and for Cooper, making it a wonderful place to come to work every day.
In service of this initiative, the C.A.R.E. Team is acknowledging Cooper Team Members engaging in acts of kindness and compassion with a kindness coin! If you receive a kindness coin, you can decide whether you would like to keep it or pass it along to the next person you encounter engaging in an act of kindness. (We will be distributing the coins to Program Administrators.) But you can even email a quick note or share a thank you without a coin!
The coins are a tangible symbol of acknowledgement and appreciation. The receiver of a coin can either keep it (some coins have holes and team members have clipped them behind their badges) or pass it along to the next individual they encounter engaging in a random act of kindness. The coins are intended to spread kindness by inspiring additional kind acts. The coins say “Pass it on!” and have phrases like:
- You made me smile.
- Thank you for everything. Token of appreciation.
- Thank you for your kindness. You took the time to show you care.
- Kind: caring, thoughtful, bright, generous … That’s you!
