World Kindness Day is celebrated nationwide annually, 13th November.

It is a day to celebrate and promote kindness in all its forms. World Kindness Day falls on the same day and unites people in kindness globally.

One of my favourite quotes is “Be Kind, because you don’t know what someone else is going through.”

I try to do random acts of kindness in my life. Whether it’s helping someone on the streets. Phoning a friend you know is suffering with depression. Holding the door open for people in shops. It doesn’t take much of our time to do something kind for someone. With so much suffering and disillusion in the world. Start making the world a better place. One random act of kindness at a time.

10 Ideas for World Kindness Day

  1. Send flowers to someone
  2. Buy someone lunch today
  3. Phone someone you know is struggling right now
  4. Cook someone dinner tonight
  5. Give an old coat to Wrap Up London
  6. Smile at strangers (yes even in London!)
  7. Ring a friend or family member today
  8. Arrange to visit a friend you haven’t seen in ages
  9. Offer your services to a charity of your choice
  10. Help the homeless in any way you can today

Wrap Up London is back

For the 8th year running, Wrap Up London are collecting your old, unwanted coats and giving them to charities that support the homeless, refugees, children living in poverty and people fleeing domestic violence (to name a few).

Help keep vulnerable people warm this winter by donating a coat this November!
