Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week:
Second week of February each year
Practice Kindness all year
HOW RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS WEEK CAME ABOUT
Back in 1982, a visionary named Ann Herbert penned a very special phrase: "Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty." For several years, this heartening message traveled across the United States, passing from friend to friend, family to family, stranger to stranger. People were feeling pessimistic and disconnected over the growing violence in the world, Conari Press decided to make a difference. They collected inspiring stories of random acts of kindness from people like you - stories that demonstrated the magical, transformational power of simple kindness to our fellow humankind. Realizing that random acts of kindness was a way to counteract random acts of violence, readers rallied, and the random acts of kindness movement was born. The first random acts of kindness week took place in February 1995. Since then, the non-profit random acts of kindness Foundation has been formed, working hard to help the movement grow and orchestrating an annual awareness campaign each February.
