About National Kindness Month

Civility & Ethics: “Treat others the way you want to be treated” is the Golden Rule that a majority of the world learns at a young age. However, it is important that individuals have an understanding of two core principles that are related to this rule: civility and ethics. Civility refers to formal politeness and courtesy in behavior or speech. Ethics refers to a set of moral principles or values, distinguishing right from wrong, that governs a person’s behavior and conduct. Practicing civility and ethics allows people to navigate the world with kindness.

Social Responsibility: Social responsibility suggests that individuals and organizations have an obligation to act in a way that benefits the society. It is important to have awareness of the impact that our actions have on others as well as the environment. Some key principles of socially responsible behavior include accountability, respect for human rights and performing charitable acts.

Community Outreach: It is important to give back to your community in some shape or form. Community outreach programs are beneficial because they often help populations that are under served. Programs also provide education on real-world issues to people that may not be well-educated or misinformed regardless of education or income.

Global Citizenship: As members of the world, we have a civic responsibility to make the world a better place. In order to be a global citizen, one must have empathy for others, believe in equality and care about world issues. Global citizens take an active role on the causes they believe in and are dedicated to making a positive impact on our society.

The Campaign for Kindness

Planned Acts of Kindness is a global outreach program where people wake up and on their cell phone, computer and devices there is a new daily planned act of kindness that they can do with their family, friends, co-workers and in their community.

The goal is to have tens of millions of people around the country, hundreds of millions of people around the world, waking up and doing the same act of kindness on the same day, and unleashing that much powerful, positive energy in the world.
