Join Goodwill in Celebrating World Kindness Day!

What is World Kindness Day?

World Kindness Day is a holiday that promotes the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world. The purpose of this day is to help everyone understand that kindness is what binds us all together. This understanding has the power to bridge the gap between nations. With kindness, we can overcome the divides of politics, race, religion, gender, and so much more. What began as an effort from the World Kindness Movement at a Tokyo conference 21 years ago is now a global movement reminding everyone of the power of kindness.

In honor of the holiday, we’ve answered all the questions you might have about World Kindness Day. We’ve also included simple ways and ideas on how you can celebrate and make the most of the day through kindness. We hope you come away with a better understanding of the holiday, why it matters, and what you can do to not only celebrate but make a difference. Join us and others across the world in celebrating and committing to showing more kindness to those around us this World Kindness Day.

How Do You Celebrate?

On World Kindness Day, groups and individual people are encouraged to go out of their way to be kind to others, whether that be at home, work, school, or just out in public. Celebrate by pledging to do at least one intentional act of kindness on that day to benefit someone else. It can be as straightforward or as involved as you like. No matter what you decide to do, your act of kindness will unite you with others dedicated to changing the world one kind act at a time.

This day is also meant to celebrate and encourage the good deeds that others already do. On World Kindness day, be sure to let others around you know how much you appreciate their kindness and generosity. Sometimes saying, “thank you,” is one of the kindest things you can do and probably isn’t heard as often as you’d think!
