World Kindness Day History
World Kindness Day was actually introduced back in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement, an organization formed at a Tokyo Conference a year before, whose goal was to remind the entire people of the need for a global kindness movement. Nowadays, over 28 countries are part of the World Kindness Movement group! World Kindness Day is a day dedicated to encouraging good deeds in your community. Sometimes, something as simple as complimenting a stranger or giving a Thank you card to a teacher can improve someone’s day. Every act, even the smallest one, can make a difference!
So let’s take a look at these activities to get some inspiration to celebrate this holiday.
