Coalition for Conservation (CFC) and Be the Change Club will join together to present the event “Billion Acts of Kindness,” on Oct. 12 at 12:30 in the Tilles Patrons Lounge. Guest speaker, Ram Singal, a survivor of the terrorist attack in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001, will speak about his experience and how his life has changed since 9/11. Singal started the company “7 Billion Acts of Goodness” and travels globally spreading positivity.
Singal was a civic engineer working in one of the twin towers the day of the terrorist attack. After this traumatizing event, Singal switched career paths and now travels around the world speaking about goodness, spirituality, and kindness.
Last year Singal spoke at a CFC event and was invited again this year, along with the Be the Change Club. Singal tries to bring awareness to global issues pertaining to college students. He “wants to make students aware that there are bigger things happening and it’s very easy to fall into a bubble here on campus,” Erica Ferrara, junior geology and environmental sustainability major, and president of CFC said. Be the Change Club will jump on board naturally as a club that focuses on spreading positivity.
