“A single leaf provides no shade.”
That is the theme of Alfred State‘s “Pay It Forward” campaign where students practice helping others, expecting that each of those beneficiaries will go on to help three more people. The idea behind the single leaf is very similar to the principle of SUNY’s systemness – the sum of a system (or, society) is greater than its individual parts. At Alfred State, the students hold close that working together will achieve greater results for the entire community.
Whether that community is Alfred, Sandy Hook, or the entire planet, Alfred State is moving kindness forward through this innovative campaign.
