Kindness Day UK was founded by Louise Burfitt-Dons and David Jamilly in
2010 to mark November 13th as an annual awareness of kind deeds in the UK.
The first Kindness Day was introduced in 1998 by the World
Kindness Movement and is now observed in many countries, including Canada,
Japan, Australia, Nigeria and United Arab Emirates. In 2009, Singapore observed
the day for the first time by distributing 45,000 flowers. Last year a kindness
text wave swept the UK, awards ceremonies took place in Scotland and Itay
and there was a party atmosphere on Bondi Beach in Australia. In the UK
many charities flagged up the day with their own individual campaigns.
