13th November – World Kindness Day


13th November – World Kindness Day

World Kindness Day was devised in 1997 by a group of humanitarians who made a declaration of kindness. You can join in with this feel good day in a variety of ways, from donating some books, food or clothes to your local community. It can be as simple as holding open the door for someone without just letting it go and don’t forget that paying someone a compliment is kind, and it could make their day!
