Come on folks! Please don’t make me pull my hair out of my head and beg you! August 25th kicks off the official start of “Be Kind to Humankind Week”. Beginning August 25th and ending August 31st. Of course, we implore you to practice kindness all year long. This particular week of kindness and practicing kind deeds was created because this is the week 22 years ago that 22 year old Bernard D. died because nobody wanted to be bothered! Read our about page for details.
Let’s get bothered together! Let’s practice kindness towards each other every single day. Some simple kind acts like smiling to a stranger, holding the door open for the person behind you, helping a disabled person with their groceries are very rewarding and are often appreciated. Take a look around you to see who can use a hand.
There is a book which I love titled “All I really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten”. It is an excellent read. As adults we tend to forget the basic golden rule which we learned in kindergarten. Let’s remember to practice kindness today and everyday!
Happy Be Kind To Humankind Week!
