Be Kind to Humankind Week

The last week of August is designated at Be Kind to Humankind Week, which is a reminder to do and say positive things to the people around you. It’s celebrated on a global basis from August 25th to August 31st every year. This is the time to reflect on what you can do to make the world a better place and how you can practice kindness on a daily basis.

Passing this feeling around will eventually help to start imbuing the world with kindness again rather than selfishness and hatred. We also suggest that flowers make a nice gesture of kindness, especially to someone in your life who might be struggling or who is under the weather. Here are some ideas for Be Kind to [...]
