About World Kindness Day
Be kind to other people every day, but especially on November 13th — which is known across the globe as World Kindness Day.
World Kindness Day is an international observance on November 13th. It was introduced in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement, a coalition of international kindness NGOs.
The year prior, groups of institutions and associations that prioritized spreading kindness in the world met for a convention in Tokyo.

Since its inception, World Kindness Day has gained recognition in 28 countries. The WKM is still fighting to get the holiday recognized by the United Nations — which would elevate it to the status shared by days like World Health Day, International Day of Peace, and Human Rights Day.Find out more
