MACOMB, IL โ€“ Making the world a more kind place one Monday at a time.

Kinder Mondays, which started as a program created by two counselors from the Western Illinois University Counseling Center in Fall 2016, is now a Universitywide program that aims to bring a little more kindness into people's lives.

#WIUKinderMondays kicked off Aug. 20. Each Monday, a different University office (or offices) will serve as a Kinder Monday "host." The hope is that the kindness is paid forward, Amy Buwick, director of the University Counseling Center, said.

Offices, organizations and departments interested in serving as Kinder Monday ambassadors can contact Buwick at (309) 298-2453 or AJ-Buwick to be added to the KM list.

Kinder Monday hosts for the remainder of Fall 2018 include, to date:

Nov. 26 - Human Resources, Thompson and C/O dining centers, 11 a.m-1 p.m., clean tables and pick up trays
Dec. 3 - WIU Athletics, location TBA
Dec. 3 - Council of Academic Advisers, Stipes first floor and Memorial Hall lobby, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. (hot chocolate and cookies)
