A day to highlight good deeds in the community focusing on the positive power and the common thread of kindness which binds us.

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.

Kindness Day

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.
