“Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.”
-Lucius Annaeus Seneca
To celebrate World Kindness Day on Monday 13 November 2017 People United invites you to join us in sharing the message ‘be kind’ with as many people as possible.
People United is excited to announce that we have commissioned bag&bones to create 10 bespoke LED signs with the message ‘be kind’. We are inviting people and groups who care about kindness from across the UK to apply to own and display one of these fantastic limited editions free of charge. You’ll need to answer a few short questions and tell us how you’ll celebrate World Kindness Day.
By giving away the ‘be kind’ signs and inspiring people to create their own (see below) we want to encourage not just specific acts of kindness, but the idea of kindness as a way of being.
To find out how to apply for one of our bespoke ‘be kind’ signs please download the application guidance which can be found on the right hand side of this page, or from our resources page.
Application deadline: Midnight Sunday 24 September 2017.
There is more than one way to join in with the ‘be kind’ campaign…
Everyone can join in with the ‘be kind’ campaign by getting creative and making your own ‘be kind’ sign. Display your signs on World Kindness Day for your community to see. Tape it on your front door, post it in your office window or put giant letters on your school fence. Together we can spread the message of being kind.
- Create your own
You can join us on Monday 13 November 2017 for World Kindness Day by displaying your own ‘be kind’ signs. Use your favourite materials; create your sign as an individual or a team. How big will you make it? Make it fun, make it beautiful, labour for hours or make it really quickly. Everyone can help to spread the message together!
