Tracker website was born out of a curiosity to see how far a reach the ripples
of kindness have in our global world. To track the
trail of kindness, we created this handy tracking site to follow where small
cards given out at our library can travel.
kindness cards have a QR code and bit.ly address on the back that allows the
receiver of the card to log in to the website and submit why they received the
kudos and where they are in the world. The next person to receive that
card can then log in and share their story, and we can see the ripple start to
form and move outside of our library and into the world.
We hope to be
able to show that a kindness that was recognized in Corvallis, Oregon might
move across the globe.
The website can
be accessed at civtrack.library.oregonstate.edu, and the cards can be picked up at any public
service desks of the Oregon State University Libraries and Press.
