What is World Kindness Day?

World Kindness Day was created in 1998 by The World Kindness Movement and its purpose was simple – to spread kindness and make the world a better place through the act of giving. Currently 28 nations around the world are involved in The World Kindness Movement, working towards a kinder and more compassionate world. 

In the United Kingdom, World Kindness Day was first organised in 2010 by Kindness UK and it encourages people to get involved in a variety of events, pledge acts of kindness and support charitable causes and local communities.

 

Some fascinating facts about Manchester

  • According to Britannica, the foundations for Women’s equality were laid in Manchester  – Emmeline Pankhurst found the Women’s Social and Political Union here in 1903.
  • William Cowherd started the trend of eating no meat in Manchester, leading to what we now consider vegetarianism, as reported by BBC.
  • According to Confidentials, Manchester was the first city to commemorate LGBTQ+ history when it became the first city to commission rainbow tiles in the flagstones of its city centre.
