Spreading good cheer during the holiday season has taken on new meaning for Suffolk County Community College student Evan Feliciano, 21, of Hauppauge, who created a unique way to pass forward the good tidings of the season all year round.
“I think it’s important to spread kindness and get a chain reaction going,” said Feliciano, who attends classes on the college’s Michael J. Grant Campus in Brentwood.
Feliciano created S.H.A.R.K! cards to help his mini on-campus movement that he hopes to spread to Suffolk’s two other campuses. The card’s name, a take-off on the College’s athletics teams’ name – is an acronym for “Students Here Are Really Kind” — and Feliciano and a team of helpers pass the cards out whenever they see students or campus visitors being nice to one another. Feliciano and his friends, in turn, encourage the card recipients to likewise pass the card along if the holder witnesses a good deed.
“So far, it has been received very well,” Feliciano said. “I hope I can spread it to our other campuses.”
