National Kindness Day, Nov. 13, 2014 (VIDEO)

NationalKindnessDay1
[/media-credit] World Kindness Week is a week that encourages people to do at least one random act of kindness during the week.

Campus students also celebrate National Kindness Day.

World Kindness Week is a week that encourages people to do at least one random act of kindness during the week. World Kindness Week is all next week (Nov. 9- Nov. 15).

World Kindness Day was born when a collection of humanitarian groups came together on Nov. 13, 1997, and made a “Declaration of Kindness.” Likewise, on Kindness Day everyone is encouraged to make a similar declaration.

Donating books, food or clothes to your local community is a great way to celebrate. However, pledging to commit just one act of kindness is no less worthwhile: hold the door open for a stranger, let your sibling have control of the TV remote for the evening.

Val Rivera has already shown acts of kindness to Greg Stobbe and Robert Foshee by presenting them with a bouquet of flowers. A random act of kindness could be as simple as this, giving someone you appreciate a gift.

Another way to participate in World Kindness Week is to be actively involved with a local serve project. This could include serving at an old folks’ home, packing medical supplies, feeding the homeless, donating to the church or charity, helping build houses for those who need it or even working in a soup kitchen.

Being active in a local serve project is easier to keep up with than a normal act of kindness, even though both are completely acceptable. So rather than paying for someone else?s coffee, you could give the money you would have used to a charity or to your church or buy a meal for a homeless person.

Our goal this week at FC is to spread the word about this holiday, and encourage students to become actively involved in giving thanks and showing random acts of kindness. Help us spread the word by hashtagging related photos or tweets with #FCGiveThanks. Remember to give thanks this World Kindness Week, and spread the word about his holiday.
