A new project sharing words of kindness has launched in Dundee.
Share the Care, set up by Mia Greenway, aims to “promote smiles, happiness and positive esteem, through random acts of kindness”.
Mia said: “Share the Care was set up as a way to give back to the Dundee community as a whole to share smiles, positivity and a connection to those around us.
“Health workers, hospital workers, retail staff and others can struggle or have issues they are facing and a wee bit of gratitude can go a long way.”
She set up the group after the death of her partner Ali.
Ali experienced anxiety and depression alongside her chronic illness before she died, something Mia experienced as well as grief.
Mia adds that the messages, cards or wee items can be left on buses, near landmarks or in community spaces for people to find.
She said: “Maybe they will also be inspired to share the care too, and write and distribute their own messages.”
Mia hopes to get carer groups across Dundee involved in the project. She said: “It may help boost their confidence and esteem as caring roles can often mean isolation.”
