It’s World Kindness Day

Today we join with others around the globe to inspire kindness!  World Kindness Day started in 1997 as a way to help everyone understand that kindness underscores our human experience. When we are kind to one another, we can overcome the divides of politics, race, religion, gender, and so much more.

It’s so easy to be kind – hold a door for a stranger, pay someone a compliment, encourage a co-worker, or simply share a smile with anyone you meet! Kindness becomes a habit when practiced regularly, so make kindness the norm!
