Celebrate World Kindness Day
This month, we would like to promote ways to practice kindness in honor of World Kindness Day, celebrated around the globe on Nov. 13 each year.
World Kindness Day was first introduced in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement to “highlight good deeds in the community focusing on the positive power and the common thread of kindness which binds us.” This day can provide an opportunity and serve as a reminder to foster compassion toward ourselves and others in our daily lives.
According to AwarenessDay.com, here are few ways to observe World Kindness Day and help make a positive difference:
Perform acts of kindness. Help a neighbor or compliment a colleague. Surprise someone with a random act of kindness, such as buying a stranger’s coffee or leaving an encouraging note for a family member or friend.
Spread positivity. Share positive messages on social media to inspire others. Send an uplifting text or email. Reach out to someone you haven’t spoken to in a while.
Volunteer. Offer your time and skills to a local nonprofit organization or group that aligns with your values.
Donate. Contribute to a charitable cause that you believe in.
Teach kindness. Educate children and young people about the importance of kindness and empathy through storytelling or activities.
