A janitor who removed racist graffiti at Syracuse University has started a campaign of kindness. reports that Keri Courtwright has been taping inspirational notes on doors, mirrors and paper towel dispensers during her rounds.

Courtwright says she wants to spread “good energy.” One message says: “Kindness changes everything.”

The notes are an extension of the positive messages she’d been posting in the Facebook group Pay it Forward CNY.

Some co-workers have joined her effort. One quote urges onlookers: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
