The fireworks so splendid
A salute to our beloved land
The land that we love and the freedom
For each woman, child and man
So God Bless this wonderful America
Our hearts filled with jubilee
Our voices echo with gladness
From sea to shining sea
Once again bk2hk’s celebration is coming upon us and we want to take this opportunity to thank all of those individuals who have helped us through out the years to spread kindness to those around us. Be Kind to Humankind was born in August of 1988 and turns 30 years old this year!! With your help and with the help of those before you, bk2hk has reached many thousands of people through out the world!! It’s astonishing yet true that one person has created this celebration and it has grown year after year. I am that person and in 1988 I was 30 years old, now 30 years later I’m 60 years old and I continue to be very humbled to see what wonderful things people do to help us promote kindness. Please remember to remain kind throughout the year, not just this one week! A little kindness goes a long way. Make the decision to be kind. Study our daily affirmations and continue to practice these ideas every day and add ideas of your own! Thank you again and enjoy this celebration of being kind to others.
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”
― Mother Teresa
“Be kind to the people you meet on the way up…because they’re going to be the same people you meet on the way down.”
― Jackie Gleason
I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of those people who participated in Be Kind to Humankind Week! As I had mentioned in my last blog entry, people who show an interest in promoting the week tend to just take the information about Be Kind to Humankind Week and run with it! Their sense of creativity is always great and word of the celebration reaches many people!
Thank you again and have a wonderful fall!
It’s hard to believe that BK2HK is 26 years old! I created it in 1988 when I was 30! I can’t get over how fast time passes by. I just want to ask you to slow down during Be Kind to Humankind Week and take the time to share your good thoughts and good deeds with others. I wish that we could incorporate this way of thinking all year round, its very difficult to do. But if we can give it a try, be mindful of our words and actions towards others, well that would be great! It would be the start of a very good thing.
Be well, be Kind.
Be Kind to Humankind Week is celebrated every year on August 25-31. Read about how BK2HK got started here.

Here it is June already! It never seems to fail, time flying by so quickly. I really should write on my blog more often. What am I saying…I haven’t written anything for 5 months! I admit that I have been a slacker, but BK2HK has been around for almost 26 years, and when BK2HK is found to be interesting to someone, they promote it in their own way.
I hope this will be the case each year so that Be Kind to Humankind Week will continue to be enjoyed!
Have a great summer!
My New Year resolution is to work on honing my own suggestions on how to celebrate sharing kindness. This goal of practicing what I preach is just as difficult for me as it is for anyone else.
With that said, once again I wish everyone a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
