It's World Kindness Day!

Every year, since 1998, November 13 has been celebrated as World Kindness Day in conjunction with the World Kindness Movement. Kindness Matters states,
World Kindness Day is to highlight good deeds in the community focusing on the positive power and the common thread of kindness which binds us. Kindness is a fundamental part of the human condition which bridges the divides of race religion, politics, gender and zip codes.

We can all benefit from kindness and we can all practice random acts of kindness. The trick is to teach children about kindness and to make acts of kindness as natural as saying "Hi."

There are many organizations and initiatives that focus on kindness including Random Acts of Kindness, The Be Kind People Project, and The Great Kindness Challenge for kids.
