World Kindness Day on the 13th November is about being kind to the world.
We need this planet to sustain us and the future generations for many years to come and if the Earth is to survive then we need to start by showing it some kindness now.
Since the world is a big place we think the best place to start with some acts of kindness is our own homes, streets, villages and towns.
By becoming more aware of the needs of our community and local surroundings we can act to make it a better place and in turn spread a little kindness, a long way.
"The purpose of World Kindness Day is to look beyond ourselves, beyond the boundaries of our country, beyond our culture, our race, our religion; and realise we are citizens of the world. As world citizens we have a commonality, and must realise that if progress is to be made in human relations and endeavours, if we are to achieve the goal of peaceful coexistence, we must focus on what we have in common". worldkindness.org
