What is World Kindness Day/Week?

Celebrated annually on November 13th, World Kindness Day is a global observation that emphasizes the need to be kind to one another in order to thrive peacefully as a global community. World Kindness Day was initiated by the World Kindness Movement at a 1998 Tokyo conference and has been celebrated around the world ever since. Participants believe that kindness has the power to change the world. World Kindness Week starts on World Kindness Day, November 13th, and ends on November 18th.

How do people in America celebrate?

There are many ways to get involved and spread kindness. At The Be Kind People Project, we believe kindness is a force that goes to the heart of how people respect, love, honor, communicate with and treat one another. We define kindness as intentionally extending good to others. World Kindness Day is an opportunity for children and adults worldwide to make a commitment to intentionally extend good to others in actions and words. Saying a kind word, calling a friend, helping a neighbor, hugging a loved one, and volunteering or making a donation to a non-profit are just a few examples.
