Embrace altruistic values and practice loving kindness with self and others is one of the 10 Caritas Principles developed by Jean Watson. To embrace this concept, on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2013, members of the Kaiser Vallejo Caritas Circle made rounds throughout the entire hospital, inspiring people to practice kindness and pass it on to others, by passing out heart stickers and a “Heart It Forward” card containing more stickers to pass on to others remembering, kindness doesn’t cost a thing but it makes all the difference in our world.
