Since 1998, 13th November has been recognised around the globe as World Kindness Day – a dedicated day to celebrating generous acts, spreading positivity and promoting the importance of being kind.
This year, it feels more important than ever to celebrate World Kindness Day. As we’ve adapted to lockdowns and a ‘new normal’, it’s been the little acts of kindness that have kept us all going. These might be the gifts sent from afar, the thoughtful phone calls and catch ups over Zoom or the extra support given to those who need it most.
To spread some positivity, we’ve asked a few colleagues and influencer friends to tell us their own stories of kindness. We hope they bring you just as much happiness as they have brought us!
Plus, discover five simple ways to spread kindness and enter our World Kindness Day competition to win a handbag from our latest collection for yourself and one for someone you want to thank for being thoughtful.
