Wipe those war faces off, folks, and prep for a big pearly-white grin. Welcome to our page celebrating the Internet incarnation of National Kindness Day! A day when snarks and trolls tuck tail while the rest of us revel in random acts of kindness, chocolate chip cookies and surprise compliments.
It's national kindness day on the 31st March.
Popping onto our online radars with a whopping 6511 mentions, this buoyant beacon of benevolent behaviour swept the web, blasting a peak on the lovely spring day of March 31, 2017. But what is behind this showcase of goodwill – and more importantly, how can you hop onboard this digital express to Kindnessville? Let's uncover.
While kindness has been around since a particularly thoughtful caveman shared his fire (true story, we swear), National Kindness Day is a more recent spectacle. Born from the desire to combat online negativity, this day champions the simple but all-too-often forgotten rule: be excellent to each other. It's a refreshing change from 'Gotcha!' to 'Got your back!'
Now, we're not saying kindness begins and ends in digitalese. Rather, National Kindness Day acts as a springboard, galvanising us to act with love and compassion in everyday life. So shift those cat videos aside and dedicate a slice of your browsing to bringing joy to others – you might be surprised by how addicting it can be.
Note, National Kindness Day isn’t just about making grand gestures. Heck, the kind words you shared with a stressed colleague on that max mentions day in 2017 might just have sparked the Kindness gold rush! The day works perfectly if you're just cracking a nice joke or sharing a virtual cup of kindness, and that's exactly what makes it so special. Remember, the World Wide Web is so wide, it has room for all of us to be nice.
