WHERE EVERY ACT OF KINDNESS COUNTS
Celebrating World Kindness Day today and every day
Celebrated on November 13th each year, World Kindness Day is a global reminder of the importance of compassion and goodwill in our interconnected world. It's a day when people from diverse backgrounds come together to promote acts of kindness, both big and small, to make the world a better place. Let's explore the significance of this day and how it encourages us all to spread kindness far and wide.
CONNOR’S KINDNESS PROJECT
Founded by 14-year-old Connor Wright, Connor's Kindness Project (CKP) is a nonprofit organization that spreads joy by distributing handcrafted "Kindness Kits." These kits, thoughtfully curated by Connor and assembled in branded red boxes, are primarily intended for children between 5 and 12 who confront challenging circumstances such as hospital stays or shelter living. In addition to the Kindness Kits, the nonprofit has initiated an after-school program called "The Kids Kindness Club." This program aims to instill kindness as a core value among elementary school children.

The #bethekindkid Kindness in Action Campaign in Pittsburgh encourages local teachers to promote kindness within their school communities through project-based learning. Students from K-12 classrooms engage in design thinking to conceptualize, create, and showcase kindness initiatives, maker projects, and art installations. The campaign aims to inspire students to deeply consider the significance of kindness in their lives and empower them to discover creative avenues for spreading kindness worldwide.
