It’s the little things that matter, and the acts that matter the most are often free! Kindness Day came about when a collection of humanitarian groups met on November 13, 1997 and made a “Declaration of Kindness”.

What will be your declaration of kindness – at work and at home? There are many ways that don’t require money.  Encourage your employees to do one small act, for example, help a co-worker complete a task, hold a door open, let someone in front of them when waiting in line, donate blood, listen to someone… There are many ways to show kindness!

Here’s an act of kindness that prisoners in Texas did – giving just a few dollars each from their personal commissary fund added up to a significant donation. We are truly caring and social beings. Kindness, generosity, and compassion are our nature.

“Inmates serving time in Texas prisons have also found a way to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Officials say Texas prison inmates donated more than $53,000 from their commissary funds to the American Red Cross to be used for hurricane relief.”

An incredible act of kindness, generosity, compassion and team effort! Please let us know how you will promote National Kindness Day at your company and/or as part of your day!
