World Kindness Day
As Scouts, we are always striving to leave the world better than we found it. So, in celebration of World Kindness Day, we’ve teamed up with our A Million Hands partner, British Red Cross, to come up with some top tips for how we can promote kindness in our everyday lives.
Here are 6 actions that you can take today, leaving the world a little kinder than it was yesterday:
Be compassionate – if someone is on their own or not included go out of your way to involve them
Be generous – give your time to help someone else or donate to a worthy cause
Be positive – spread happiness, give compliments, smile and be a ray of sunshine
Be helpful – commit to doing small tasks that would make life a little bit easier for someone else
Be inclusive – treat everyone with respect and appreciate people’s differences.
Over the next four years, as part of our A Million Hands programme, our young people will have the chance to become Kindness Champions and will put the power of kindness into action by:
Acting as role models
Challenging unkind acts
Using their influence to spread kindness
Showing acts of kindness to support local, national and international needs.
