Kindness Campaign November Update!

“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”

                                                                                    Desmond Tutu

Last month our challenge was to help someone with their Fall leaf cleanup. I was the recipient of unexpected help last week and what a wonderful surprise that was! It was just awesome to come home and see the grass instead of a yard full of leaves! It is with a thankful heart that I present this month’s challenge…

“A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.”

                                                   William Arthur Ward

World Kindness Day is an international observance on 13 November. It was introduced in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement a coalition of nations kindness NGOs. It is observed in many countries, including CanadaJapan, Australia, Nigeria and United Arab Emirates. In 2009, Singapore, Italy and India also observed the day for the first time. Please take the time to visit to learn more about kind acts happening throughout the country. In observance of World Kindness Day, I challenge you to smile at every stranger you encounter. Just think of how many happy moments that will create during the next 30 days!

As always, we can’t wait to hear your story. Please share your moments with us at email us at
