The World Kindness Movement

Joan and I are really heartened to see that there are so many movements around the world that are about ‘making this a kinder and gentler world’.

One that is exciting to us because Brock Tully here in Vancouver has a vibrant branch of this kindness movement, is The World Kindness Movement (WKM)  worldkindnessmovement.org.  I will quote what it says as the introduction to this site:

“The idea behind the World Kindness Movement (WKM) crystallized at a conference in Tokyo in 1997 when the Small Kindness Movement of Japan brought together like-minded movements from around the world.  The WKM was officially launched in Singapore on 18 November 2000 at the 3rd WKM Conference.  The mission of the WKM is to inspire individuals towards greater kindness and to connect nations to create a kinder world”.

Yeah!  This is a movement to get fully behind!

May your days be full of kindness……………….

hugzz,
