Celebrate World Kindness Day


I love National days,  so I take advantage of posting about them often.  It gives me an excuse to do something I normally wouldn't do. November 13th is World Kindness Day. As part of World Kindness Day, we are encouraged to spread kindness like an infectious disease. We want to share it more than usual because studies show when others observe kindness in action they are more likely to carry out an act of kindness, too.

So, imagine if you head out for the day and your neighbor’s garbage can have tipped over. Instead of ignoring it and letting the wind make a mess, you pick it up and return it to the corner. Other neighbors notice and give you a smile and a nod on their way to work.
One of those neighbors notices a stranded driver on the side of the road on his commute to work. He remembers your thoughtfulness and offers assistance to the stranded driver. Several passersby take notice.
At a business office, a woman struggles with a paper jam. She’s had a horrible day. The customer has been waiting, but she remembers the stranded driver she passed earlier in the day. The customer lets the office worker know to take her time. Everyone has a bad day.
We each have the ability to improve each other lives through kindness. Whether it’s a friend, family member, coworker or stranger, our ability to show our humanity has no limit.
HOW TO OBSERVE WORLD KINDNESS DAY

Let your compassion shine! Get caught showing as much kindness as possible.
If you give an act of kindness or receive an act of kindness, Use #WorldKindnessDay to share on social media!

The World Kindness Movement started World Kindness Day in 1998 and has spread to 28 countries. 
Be a part of this fantastic day by showing your good side to anyone and everyone!

  2. It's a shame our Russian neighbours(who CAN SPEAK ENGLISH) hate....passing the time of day with us! (We haven't two heads...)Just a 'Good Day' would be nice. They've been holidaying here for five years (for six weeks at a time) and moved in permanently about a year ago. Sad, isn't it.
