FAIRFIELD, Conn.  -- Kindness Matters, a local Fairfield movement, led by Veronica Mollica, will help local residents celebrate International Random Acts of Kindness Week, from Feb. 9 to Feb. 15.

The movement emphasizes how kindness creates a collective power that positively influences families, schools, workplaces, and communities. Mollica, along with other North Stratfield Elementary School parents, have developed a Kindness Matters campaign at the school.

The guiding belief is that cultivating kindness with kids at an early age will foster an environment that is inclusive rather than exclusive. Although the group holds many events and activities throughout the year, International Radom Acts of Kindness Week is an opportunity to involve the community and watch kindness become contagious.

North Stratfield students will be completing more than 4,000 random acts of kindness leading up to the week long event. On Monday, Feb. 9, during a school assembly, students will share projects they have been working on called the “Gratitude Project” and “What Kindness Means to Me” after taking the kindness pledge.

The staff will highlight a kind character trait each day and discuss ways to practice them. All students will take part in a school wide art project that will be displayed in the cafeteria.

North Stratfield students will also venture out in the community by hiding bookmarks with kind notes in public library books. The super hero of kindness scavenger hunt will also take place downtown Fairfield on Feb. 13.

Fairfield residents can look for promotional fliers around town. More information about Kindness Matters is on Facebook and its website .
