Arts and kindness charity, People United, is giving away ten bespoke LED ‘be kind’ signs to celebrate World Kindness Day on Monday 13 November 2017.

The special giveaway is open to anyone who would use the sign to inspire acts of kindness and promote kindness as a way of life. People United is looking to give signs away to individuals, groups and organisations that care about kindness.

To be in with a chance of receiving a ‘be kind’ sign, applicants are asked to challenge themselves and/or their colleagues to not only display the ‘be kind’ signs but to also complete a kindness challenge. People United is excited to hear applicants’ ideas for acts of kindness, big or small, that will benefit their communities and spread kindness.

People United have commissioned innovative LED neon sign makers bag&bones to create the limited edition ‘be kind’ signs. These LED neon lights are more environmentally sustainable, but just as beautiful, as traditional neon glass. The signs will vary in colour, but all will be 80cm wide x 30cm high.

The deadline to apply to own one of these bespoke signs is midnight on Sunday 24 September 2017. It’s a simple process; answer a few short questions about where you’d put the sign and who it would benefit. Applications are welcome from everyone including (but not limited to): schools, community venues, youth groups, hospitals, care homes, arts organisations, businesses, voluntary organisations, housing associations, local councils, heritage venues, museums, galleries, and individuals.

Join the ‘be kind’ campaign

People United is encouraging everyone to get creative and make their own ‘be kind’ sign to display on World Kindness Day. Simply use your favourite materials and create your sign. Make it on your own or with friends and colleagues. 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.

Share your custom signs with the world. On Monday 13 November 2017 post photos of your handmade signs on Twitter and tag @people_united #BeKindSigns.

  1. We run a retreat centre called Tilton House on the South Downs. We celebrated our 10th year this year!
    We work hard not to have signs here so this would be the main one! A reminder to our clients that self care and healing begins with kindness

  2. Hello,
    I stopped thinking about work briefly over the weekend then realised this evening that I had missed the deadline to apply for a BeKind sign. Oh no! Is it definitely too late – or could I send in my form belatedly?
    Thank you,

  3. Hi will applicants be informed if unsuccessful???
