World Kindness Week is celebrated around the World from 7 November to the official World Kindness Day on 13 November. Annually, on 13 November, the world joins hands for World Kindness Day, a day highlighting random good deeds and positivity.
The idea behind this started with the 20-nation member World Kindness Movement (WKM) which crystallised at a conference in Tokyo in 1997 when the Small Kindness Movement of Japan brought together like-minded kindness movements from around the world. The WKM was officially launched in Singapore on 18 November 2000 at the 3rd WKM Conference.
The mission of the WKM is to inspire individuals towards greater kindness and to connect nations to create a kinder world.
For the month of November 2022, we are encouraging all of us to make KINDNESS the norm. We are encouraging you to attempt to do one act of kindness per day. Kindness is a choice.
