The Butterfly Effect UWO

About us: 

This initiative introduces hundreds of students to the world of paying it forward and performing random acts of kindness, which can have significant influences on both the performer and the recipient of the act of kindness. With all the hate, segregation and tragedy occurring in the world currently, a simple act of kindness can have a profound effect. The purpose of this initiative is behind its’ name; small causes have larger effects. As the famous mathematician Edward Lorenz once said, a butterfly flapping it’s wings in Mexico can cause a hurricane in Japan. This initiative is a small change when looking holistically but according to the Chaos theory small changes to the initial conditions of a system can result in large differences in later states. We’ve created this group to help make a lasting impact on the students at Western by spreading positivity and happiness.
