After a recent survey and questionnaire carried out by the Voice of Young People (VYP), the organisation has urged locals to get involved in a new campaign that promotes “Acts of Random Kindness” (ARK).
The most pressing issue to be revealed from the questionnaire was bullying, and the campaign has been dreamt up as a means to promote friendship, community spirit, positivity and good behaviour.
VYP, in partnership with the charity “I’m Against Bullying Gibraltar”, will roll out a community wide appeal throughout the anti-bullying week 11th – 15th November.
Schools, businesses, charities, government departments can all get involved and an ARK bucket will be delivered to all signed-up organisations. Within the bucket there will be cards with acts of kindness for people to choose and carry out during the week such as “Put a smile on someone’s face,” “Spend time with someone you haven’t seen for a while”, and so on.
