The Kind Hearts Kindness week has kicked off in the Highlands.
The brainchild of Adam Stokeld from Highland FM 107.1, the Kind Hearts movement has linked together with ReFrame and Community Links Wellbeing to promote kindness, connection and start a discussion around mental health and wellbeing.
Ambassadors were handing out flowers from kindness partner Flower Flower, as well as a gift of kindness pack which included a kindness quote, pen, chocolate and lollipop.
Kindness ambassador Tegan Clift said that she had seen an amazing response to the pop stalls.
"Some people are a little standoffish because they expect to be asked for a donation," she said.
"But when they realise it's for free they accept it.
"I found that the hesitant ones were the ones who needed a kindness boost the most."
Another kindness ambassador Jacob Downie said that the pop-up stall offered a way to open dialogue around mental health.
"The pop-up stall has been really good for opening up a dialogue surrounding mental health," he said.
Three hundred bags were handed out across the three locations.
The stalls were located at Mittagong Marketplace, in front of Springett's Arcade Bowral and at Coles Moss Vale.
Members of the community including GPs, Department of Education representatives, health care workers, emergency services workers, sports coaches, youth representatives and representatives from Community Links, Lifeline, The Man Walk, Meals on Wheels and more will join Highland FM to talk about kindness and its place in the community.
